Nick thrived on hunting and fishing and was a gifted pilot who could often be seen flying overhead. Nick Easterling, in a word, was ‘authentic’. Whether he was fly fishing for tarpon, hunting in Montana, or putting together a business deal, Nick was Nick. He touched and impacted the lives of many from all walks of life, making each one feel as though they were the most important one to him in that moment, which they were. He was a gifted conversationalist and loyal friend who took fashion advice from no one and never missed an opportunity for a good meal or taking the back roads to anywhere. Most of all, he was a loving father who taught his children about gratitude, the great outdoors, and the importance of family.
All those who were blessed enough to know him will remember him as one of the greats. Thank you, Nick, you will be missed.
