Nick loved animals and was particularly fond of cats. He was almost a cat whisperer. He could go into any neighbourhood, sit down cross-legged in the middle of the street and the cats would come out and circle him, seeking his attention. In recent years, “Kasper the Kid” grew very fond of hip-hop / rap genre of music and was beginning to shine as an artist / lyricist. He also developed a knack for building and repairing bikes, along with a desire to learn more about his M├ętis culture. Above and beyond all else, Nick was extremely funny, and very kind. He loved his brothers, his family and his friends. In the short period he was on this earth, he made a lasting positive impact on numerous people around him who now mourn his passing. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. on June 20th, 2015 at the First Ave Christian Assembly on First Ave in Chilliwack, BC.
