Nicholas grew up in Morris and attended Morris Schools, graduating from Morris High School with the class of 2004.  He was an athlete and was active with the Morris High School football and basketball teams. 

He worked for INEOS Enterprises, Joliet, IL.

Nick was an avid gun collector and could be found during fall season cheering on the Chicago Bears.  He enjoyed golfing and playing basketball.  Most of all he cherished being a husband and dad to his two adoring sons.

He was the “Gentle Giant” and was known to be a person friends could rely on. 

Survived by his loving wife of 5 years, but had been together for 15 years, Stefanie (nee Salzmann); his two children, Beckett and Emerick Koehler; his mother, Adele Koehler; his brother, David (Erica) Koehler; his aunts, Arlene (John) Bell, Audrey Boyd, and Anita (Don) Revelle; nieces, Madisyn, Carmella, and Colette Koehler; mother-in-law, Dayna Salzmann; sister-in-law, Ashley (Joseph) Meador and brother-in-law, Glenn “Bucko” (Ashley Lindemuth) Salzmann, Jr.; nephews, Aidan, Easton, and Leighton Meador.  Many cousins and dear friends also survive.
