Nicholas instilled a strong work ethic in all his children while working for nine years with Quanah, Acme, and Pacific Rail Road, after which he went to work as a foreman for H.B. Zachry until his retirement in 1985.
We would like to thank Dr. Stephen E Hohman and his team at Baylor Dallas, also the wonderful and caring nurses at Baylor 13th floor. Our profound gratitude to the VNA Hospice nurses for making our father comfortable in his last days. Your kindness and prayers will never be forgotten.
