Nicholas Adam Boettcher, 27, died Wednesday Oct. 21, 2020, in Barron, Wis.
He was born Nov. 15, 1992, in Rice Lake, the son of Adam Boettcher and Sylvia Clausen.
Nicholas served four years with the National Guard right after graduating from Mosinee High school in 2011.
He loved deer hunting during bow season, and always enjoyed opening day of rifle season with his mom, Sylvia and Uncle Jeff. He had a passion for cars, especially fast sports cars. His Truck was his pride, which he worked hard on modifying, tweaking, and upgrading. He would spend countless hours working to customize his truck. He often just liked to get in and drive for hours.
Nicholas loved being with his friends having campfires, hiking, camping, paintballing, working on cars, floating down rivers on rafts, and even jumping from bluffs into waters below. He was always up for adventures with his many friends and family. He also loved weightlifting at the gym daily, often going to the gym serval times a day. He even tried his hand at Mixed Martial Arts and boxing.
Nicholas was a fun-loving guy and will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
