Eagles of Death Metal Merch Man Killed In Paris Attack Laid To Rest
The 35-year-old was killed by extremists who opened fire on fans as they watched the Eagles of Death Metal. The killers - later revealed to be part of the IS group - then detonated suicide vests.
More than 250 mourners, including his parents Barry and Shelagh and sister Zoe, attended the funeral at St Andrew's Parish Church in Weeley, Essex - where Nick was once an altar boy.
His body arrived in a silver hearse decorated with musical note-shaped floral tributes. The order of service booklet included a picture of Nick at a pier, with words from American author Kurt Vonnegut: "Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.
"Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place." Read more here.
