Four years later Nick and Rose would welcome their last child Ryan into the family in December 1978. Nick raised his family in a home he built with his own two hands. He lived a long and blessed life filled with love, excitement and always a little boldness. He was an amazing, kind hearted, comical man who lived his life with so much generosity.
