Nicholas Ryan Lightfoot
(March 18, 1982 - April 25, 2010)

Nicholas Ryan Lightfoot
he lived, he died, he is alive again. Beloved by Jesus. Born March 18, 1982 and a joy then and still a joy to his family and friends.
He was and is loved intensely by family and friends. He lived all his life in Northern Michigan and had a physics degree from Michigan Technological University. A truly brilliant and creative soul, Nick fully used his great talents in Research and Development, engineering new life preserving technologies for MPS Corporation. He labored sacrificially to this end.

Nick loved nature and all the experiences that it brought; adventures, exploring, gardening, wine making and beer brewing, and so much more, always living life to the fullest. He wanted to experience all life had for him. He loved Jesus and everything Nick did was empowered and directed by his relationship with Jesus. His faith was strong and he lived it. He is still living his adventures with Jesus.

He was with Nate Denay, his best friend, on one of their many adventures when death came prematurely. They lived together, they died together. They live on.

Nick is survived by his parents, Randy and Judy Lightfoot; his future wife, Heidi Wade; brothers: Jason and fiancée Kristen, Derek and his wife Trisha; nieces & nephews: Brett, Sonya, Zane, Deron, Arianna, Kaliah, Tanner and Jayson; grandparents, Gerald & Geneva Lubbers and Lorna Lightfoot; and by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather; Lester Lightfoot in 1996.
