Nevin spent his time with family, friends and classmates. He showed courage, strength, and empathy to all that entered into his life. He was the laughter, and a joy to us! Nevin loved rap music and spent a lot of time at the recording studio. He found joy in staying up all night long playing video games (Drifting Cars on Grand Theft Auto was his favorite)! Listening to loud music with a huge smile, and oftentimes you would see him riding down the sidewalk on his bike. When talking on the cellphone, Facetime was his favorite. Nevin was that baby to everyone, that we never wanted to see grow up.
