He was an infantryman and had been awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, which is given to soldiers who see direct combat. Before enlisting, he worked as a mason's assistant in the Laconia area. He bought a truck that he had fixed up and paid off. He planned to buy a Harley-Davidson after his tour ended. He wanted to join the National Guard. Nick had a highly developed sense of right and wrong that stood out to his peers and teachers. He was a really solid human being and he was a caring human being, and was a big, strapping kid. Survivors include his parents, Denis R. and Lenda A. Cournoyer, of Gilmanton; a sister, Natalie A. Cournoyer, of Meredith; his grandmother, Vivian A. Newton, of Laconia. He was buried with full military honors. He died of injuries sustained when an improvised explosive device detonated near his Humvee during combat operations in Baghdad at age 25.
