Nic was born December 16, 1988, in Atlantic, Iowa, to Kevin and Martha (Fiebelkorn) Baier. He attended community schools in Atlantic graduating from Atlantic High School with the class of 2007.
Nic joined Boy Scout Troop 54 in 1994. Before attaining the rank of Eagle Scout in 2006, Nic attended two council wide Jubilees, three High Adventure outings and numerous Council Summer Camps. This was important to Nic to achieve the highest rank in Scouts, which is Eagle.
Nic was employed at Atlantic Bottling, starting there in the summer of 2006 as a fork lift operator and loading trucks.
Nic’s passion for outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing and camping were only rivaled by his interest in mudding, stock car racing and horseshoes. He looked forward to ending the week by having supper at Mom and Dad’s. It gave him time to relax, share stories, play games and decide about the next week’s activities.
