My Grandpa was a devoted father, and family oriented, he was very gentle, soft-spoken, he was very witty, and could write very funny stories, Nick was a great poet, he loved nature and football. He lived in Yellow Springs as an adult. He was tall and had long legs, solid, he had dark hair and a beard and when he would smile his eyes would twinkle. He didn't any particular pet, Nick was a great man who will be dearly missed.

I give thanks to my mom for the terrific interview.
