Nicolas lived with his daughter, Patricia and her husband Rick Johnson for 30 years. He moved with them from the city to the country where he enjoyed being outdoors more than anything. He loved tending to the garden, planting flowers and maintaining the yard along with making all kinds of trinkets with rocks or whatever he could find.
