Nick always loved to fish especially at Otter Creek with his wife and two boys. They had many fishing, camping, and hunting memories together. Nick loved to garden. He treated many neighbors, friends, and family to the best tomatoes, squash and cucumbers ever grown. He always looked forward to "coffee" with his good friends, up until the day he passed he started each day with his buddies. The only thing he loved more than "coffee" was the time he spent with his family. He is survived by his two sisters Judy Fischer, Mary Lueine Allred, and brother Barry Nicholes, two sons Keith , and Mark, grandchildren, Jessica (Brook) Madsen, Whitney (Kade) Cox, Cassi (Jay) Orton, Keisha Nicholes, Tyler (Andi) Nicholes, Braden Nicholes, Brielle Nicholes and 8 great grandchildren.

The family would like to thank Ethan Bunker, his hospice nurse, and all the doctors, nurses, and staff at Valley View Medical Center for taking such good care of our father, grandfather, and brother. His family never questioned his love for them. Nick may be gone from this earth but he will continue to live on in our hearts. There will be a gathering for family and close friends Saturday April 4th from 9:30am-11:00am at Southern Utah Mortuary, followed by a graveside service at 11:30am at the Cedar City Cemetery under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary.
