A TRIBUTE TO OUR SON, “NICKY”

April 21, 1981 - April 24, 2004

 

 

In 1997 at the age of 16, Nicky Nobles with the assistance of his parents founded DayStar Embroidery & Screenprint.  The business started as a custom embroidery shop but soon became a service to the corporate world.  In 2002 Nicky and his father merged their companies, so they could offer a greater variety of services.  Nicky was being groomed to operate the business and follow in his father’s footsteps.  His dreams in the business world are still fulfilling everyday.   The 5,000 square feet expansion, for the new screen print equipment he had selected is now complete.   Nicky enjoyed life, aggravating his sister and hanging out with friends!  The outdoor activities he loved consisted of four wheeling, boating, fishing, river trips, cook outs, paint balling, deer hunting, but especially duck hunting!  Nicky was a proud sponsor of the Southeastern Waterfowl Association, a member of Ducks Unlimited and a Life Time member of the North American Hunting and Fishing Club.  He could spend hours downloading the varieties of music he loved or conquering the game world on his play station.  Our son had a good and big heart along with an electric smile that everyone remembers him by.   He loved to design hats for his buddies, or embroider items for special acquaintances!   Nicky always enjoyed doing a favor for someone.  It would make his day to know he had made yours!   He was a member of the Chadbourn Pentecostal Holiness Church where he had participated in the Hand Bell and Youth Choir.  During his teen years he played the trumpet in The Church Ensemble.  In the summer of 1997, Nicky was the bass player for the Damascus Band which won in the Local Teen Talent Division.  Their win took them to Kansas City for the Nationals Division where they won Third place.  Their song for competition was, “Our God is An Awesome God.”  We also want to share with you Nicky’s screensaver at work.  He had changed it about two months before his accident.  It is the picture that NASA took with the Hubble Telescope.  It was quoted, “that it was simply The Eye of God.”  "Eye of God" as taken by the Nasa Hubble Telescope.Nicky thought this was an awesome picture, that’s why his old screensavers had to go! (If you want a copy for your screensaver...click here)  “Eternity” is just a breath away and Nicky has arrived there!  He was riding with friends and was involved in a four wheeler accident and only lived around forty five minutes afterwards.  We didn’t get to see him before he left here but we are going to meet him there!  As Nicky was being carried to the rescue squad, he told his friends, “don’t worry, I’ll be alright.”  I know he’s looking for the arrival of family and friends.  We raised Nicky to know God, and we are so glad we did!   He accepted the Lord as his personal Savior at an early age.  He knew Him and I’m sure Nicky’s glad he did, because God was there that day with him, when we couldn’t be.  Nicky made us very proud to be his family.  We can hardly wait till we all are together again!  God is the Total Solution, no matter what the circumstances!  Nicky you will always be in our hearts everywhere we go and in everything we do!

 

We miss you, & we’ll love you forever!
