Life Story / Obituary
Please scroll down for visitation & Mass times, memorial contribution information, and link to online directions to the place of visitation & Mass.
Nicholas was born in West Allis, Wisconsin on May 16, 1992. In his younger years, he attended St. Sebastian and Manitoba Elementary Schools. He was a curious boy and made friends easily and loved nothing more than playing with all of them. He later attended both Riverside and Kilmer High Schools.
As with most young men his age, Nicholas was also an avid video game player. He began skateboarding at a young age and it became his passion. Attesting to his accomplished skill, even though he skateboarded everywhere, he never was in a serious accident. As he grew older, he never lost his enjoyment of simply hanging out with his friends. He enjoyed his smart phone and was known by all for his meme posts and his obsession with Pokemon Go. He was so relieved to retrieve his Pokemon Go account after it mysteriously disappear and even had his mother “walk” his phone for him to help hatch his eggs. Nicholas was also an accomplished street artist.
Nicholas’ knack for making friends continued into his adult life which he found to be an asset when he chose a career in the service industry. He enjoyed the comradery with his fellow workers while cooking in the kitchens of various Milwaukee restaurants and also excelled in using his innate friendliness and charm while working as a bartender to make patrons feel welcome.
Nicholas will be remembered as a “professional socializer.” He had friends everywhere – if you met Nicholas, it wouldn’t take long and you would be his friend. He was well loved by all who knew him and there is a huge void in the hearts of his family, friends, and co-workers. REST EASY
Nicholas was Born into Eternal Life July 28, 2018 at the age of 26 years. He is the cherished son of Cynthia (Jose) Cuellar Rodriguez and Robert (Ann-Marie) Hafferman. The beloved brother of Michael Cuellar, Cristian Cuellar Rodriguez, Chanta Christianson, and Nora and Charles Hafferman. The loving grandson of Robert and Rosa Cuellar and Vernon and Yvonne Hafferman. He is further survived by other relatives and a multitude of dear friends.
