Nias had a passion for eating pizza and Nutella, playing his play station, dressing up as his favorite character for Halloween and making tik toks, even though he only posted twice. He was a natural athlete, being able to pick up any sport. He had a fondness for the ocean, boogie boarding and singing to his favorite songs. A sweet friendly boy, he was able to make friends with anyone and everyone. One of the best things about Nias was how he adored being with his family. He always looked forward to annual family camping trips in Flaming Gorge. Dancing and playing with cousins, he was always filled with joy and laughter. He relished the times spent with his Grandma Lori on the VR and waffles in the morning. But most of all, he loved his morning kisses with his momma and random sayings of “I Love You!”.

Life Story Info
We were saddened to hear of Nias's death. Vernetta called this morning to let us know. I looked at his pictures and obituary on Facebook and saw what a beautiful and happy boy he was. What a blessing for him to have such a loving and happy family during his short life on earth. Now he will be in an even happier place, waiting for the day when he will be reunited with the family he knew here.
