He then joined and retired from Laborers Union Local #530 out of Zanesville.  Nick grew up on the family farm and continued farming his entire life. He leaves behind his 30-year-old horse Spike whom many people have grown to love and spoil for him! Nick was an avid Harley rider since a very young age and enjoyed building motorcycles himself. He was a social man who had many friends and he loved to travel around the surrounding counties visiting friends, sharing stories and jokes, and laughing. Everywhere Nick went he took his best buddy and sidekick, his dog Harley.
