Nils’ hobbies included golfing, fishing and playing online poker. He had a love of the water which was evident in the tropical vacations he took, his passion for boating, his time spent at the beach and watching a good rainstorm. Trips to Las Vegas with family and friends were something he looked forward to every year. He was intrigued by magic, particularly slight-of-hand. Nils was an avid fan of music, keeping up with current events, and the Sunday comics, especially Big Nate. Throughout his career, Nils enjoyed tremendous success as a salesman. He was also exceptionally handy and able to tackle most projects on his own. He enjoyed indulging on tasty Rice Krispies treats, red hot dollars, crabs, and lobster. Nils’ family was the most important part of his life. He will be truly missed.
