Nicholas “Nick” James Godfrey, 36, was called home on Friday, Jan. 3, 2020, with his wife Kristin by his side.

He was born May 9, 1983 to James Godfrey and Cheryl Reeves in Elk City, Okla.

Growing up, he was good at racing dirt bikes. At 8 years old, he was fastest on the track. When he wasn’t racing, he loved riding the trails on his four-wheeler. His love for the wind in his face grew into owning and riding Harley Davidsons.

While living in Florida, Mr. Godfrey led an exciting life as a certified Zumba instructor and a lifeguard at Miramar Beach. He received his ssociate Degree in welding, then went on to become a certified Scuba diver. He would use this to pursue a career as an underwater welder. Little did he know, he would later become self-employed as a contracted truck driver for Tradewinds in Westfield, where he lived most recently. When he wasn’t working, he enjoyed hunting and fishing with his friends, or as he referred to them, his brothers. All his friends were family to him.

Mr. Godfrey married Kristin Dennis on March 5, 2019. When he wasn’t on the road, Mr. and Mrs. Godfrey took his Harley out for rides often. He will always be remembered by Mrs. Godfrey as someone who was always fun loving and giving. He always had a smile on his face that would light up a room. He enjoyed seeing people happy.

Survivors include his wife Kristin; their children, Madison Rose Godfrey, Jackson Ryan Deakins, Shelby Ann Deakins and Bristol Lynn Deakins; father James (Tammy) Godfrey; mother Cheryl Reeves; sister Mindi Godfrey; father- and mother-in-law John and Helen Dennis; and many friends that he considered his family.
