Dad was known for his entrepreneurial spirit, he was a born leader, mentor, and teacher. He will be remembered for his generosity, creativity, vision, aggressiveness and determination, in all aspects of his life. Nick had a lifelong passion for the outdoors and was an avid sportsman and published writer that took him many places across the world. He was a loving family man, an exceptional sportsman, a formidable businessman and a generous friend. Predeceased by his son Kyle, Nick will be lovingly missed by his wife Miranda, his two sons Kirk (Linda) and Kevin (Caryn), and his grandchildren: Ryan, Scott, Caroline, Keith, Taylor and Caylee. Nick leaves behind his many friends and peers in the food industry. A celebration of his extraordinary life will be held at Christian Life Assembly in Langley on Saturday, January 14, 2005 at 1:00 pm. Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
