The Story

Nick is a testament of a young, determined and upright moral American man, serving his community and country to his fullest. Many friends and family in his hometown are deeply affected by the loss of Nick.

He was on "loan" as a mechanic with another AAV unit for Pre- Deployment exercises at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center when he was tragically killed in a training accident. He had approximately one year left on his Marine Corp. contract and had volunteered for a second deployment overseas affective sometime early 2014.

He had a previous deployment to Afghanistan; in return earning himself Afghanistan Campaign Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and Sea Service Deployment Ribbon. Prior to serving in the Marine Corp., Nick grew up in the small, true, “hometown America” town of Eagle Point, OR.

His father and mother own and operate Valley Feed and Pet Supply. Nick's mother is also a member of the City Council in Eagle Point. Together, both parents, volunteered countless hours to Cub Scout's and Boy Scout's of America where Nicholas and his middle brother Jeffrey, both earned the title of an Eagle Scout. The past few years Nick has been stationed at the Marine Corp Base Camp Pendleton, CA. At the end of his Marine Corps career, Nick looked forward to attending a gunsmithing school in Colorado.

Nick liked snowboarding, country music, outdoor activities and being with family. Nick had looked forward to attending a Jason Aldean concert October 18th, and had pre- Purchased tickets to attend with friends and family members of So. California. His seat will remain empty, but we know an angel will be watching over head.
