Sadly our dear father Nick has recently lost his battle with cancer. We would love to see as many of you as possible on the 24th October to give him the send off he truly deserves.
My deepest condolences. He was truly a great man that gave back so much to the communities around him. To his family may his memories leave on from the lives he touched and may those smiles he brought bring you comfort.
I met Nick when I led a development NGO in Nairobi in 2005-2006 and then stayed in touch when I moved back to the US to join a foundation. I will always remember the tour he gave us of the Nairobi workshop, his irrepressible energy and enthusiasm, and disdain for those who lacked his human connection and sense of urgency. I hope I have been a bit more engaging and irreverent because of his example. May his memory be a blessing to his family and friends.
I have such fond memories of Nick and high regard for his advice so freely given, his patience and of course that twinkling humour. My thoughts go out to the whole family at this time of great loss and to all his many friends. I wish I could attend the funeral and show my great respect for this wonderful man. I will think of you all on Wednesday.
Such a pleasure to have known Nick, and be enchanted by his wonderful tales. He could paint a picture with his words. And he did the best elephant's trumpet I've ever heard.
