Nicholas was baptized and received his first communion at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. He attended Resurrection Catholic School from Kindergarten thru the 12th grade. He always had an adventurous sprit and lived life the way he thought it should be. Always willing to try different food, he had a real passion for travel, and the many friends he collected from all walks of life kept his life very interesting. He never had any enemies and was a kind and loving soul. In his short life he traveled to England, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Mexico and the Caribbean as well as most of the United States. Nick was actively involved in the Saltillo Mission and participated in trips to the Saltillo Mexico Mission while attending RCS. He played soccer throughout his school years and then ran cross country in high school. However, music was the thing that really made him happy and spent many hours playing his beloved guitars. He rode his first motorcycle at the age of 7 and enjoyed that hobby for the rest of his life. He also spent a great deal of time on the water with his family and friends fishing and exploring the Gulf Islands and Pascagoula River. He had many close friends in Florian Von Loquenghein from Stuggart, Germany who lived with the Capdepon family for a year while attending RCS High School. He was an avid reader from a young age and comprehended what he read very well. He was awarded a scholarship to attend Springhill College in Mobile, Alabama and attended several other colleges. Nick hiked the Grand Canyon and later participated in the World Organization of Organic Farmers in Oxford, MS, and Washington state. While in Seattle he once hiked Mt. Rainier with a friend and was nearly trapped in a blizzard but was rescued by a park ranger. He also became interested in hunting later in life and killed his first deer in 2020. After attending Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College vocational classes, he worked with a plumber and learned a great deal about the trade eventually using his experience to help him rebuild the house he was planning to soon be living in. Nick was proud of his progress he made on his long road to recovery and that led to the decision he made in 2021 to get a CDL and enter the profession of OTR trucking, driving over 140K miles in the last year. He was very excited and shared many details of his long journeys behind his Kenworth T 680 he drove all over the Eastern United States from New York to Tampa Florida and as far west as Colorado. He used his experiences on the road to encourage other younger drivers to be professional and courteous.
