Nicholas Robert Burbank (Nick) passed away unexpectedly at the age of 32 on Tuesday, October 11th, 2022. He lived his life wide open, always doing everything he did with 110% effort…ALWAYS. He worked hard, played hard, and loved his family deeply.
He pushed through many challenges in his life with grit and determination, many times sacrificing more than many could ever imagine.
Every job he had, he did well. His work ethic beyond amazing.
He enjoyed experimenting in the garden and seeing what vegetables he could grow in his multiple raised beds and had a desire to grow his own hops someday.
He was a DIE HARD Rams fan.
Nick leaves behind his mother, father, brother and sisters, an extended family and countless friends who loved him. Most importantly, as an incredible father, he will leave his legacy through his three young children whom he loved fiercely and poured into them EVERYTHING he had.

“Time for me to fly
Oh, I’ve got to set myself free
Time for me to fly
And that’s just how it’s got to be
I know it hurts to say goodbye
But it’s time for me to fly”

Fly freely Nick, and soar higher than ever before.

Family is conducting a Celebration of Life for Nick on Thursday, October 20, 2022, from 5-8PM in the lower level of the El Zagal Shriners at 1429 3rd St N, Fargo, ND 58102.

  1. Your laughter and smiles will be greatly missed Nick. The love you had for your children and the stories you always shared were a joy to hear. You were taken from us way too early. With love and joyful thoughts I hope you are at a place of peace.

  2. Karen and Family. Was so very sad to hear of Nick’s passing. He was always an amazing person and I enjoyed him every time I saw him. It’s been awhile since I have seen your family but you are all – always in my heart. We have many memories to cherish. So very sad and hoping your fond memories give you comfort and smiles. Take care and know many of us have you in our thoughts.

  3. My deepest sympathy for the Burbank family! Know I pray for you during this absolutely difficult time. As you all navigate life without Nick remember all the beauty of his earthly life and rely on your faith of God’s forever kingdom and one day joining him there.

  4. I don’t think I have ever laughed or cried so hard with another person…his energy and laugh were contagious when he walked into a room (the way he told stories, he really had that ability to draw a person’s attention)…17.5 years-worth of memories from working at Seasons, all the way to having children of our own to chase after, I’ll always celebrate his life. Burbank Family, my heart is with you all during this tremendous time of sadness/grief; stand together, stay strong, and remember Nick is watching over us all.

  5. We are sending our love and deepest sympathy to the entire Burbank family. I know that words fall hollow and flat but please feel the love of your friends and family during this deep sadness.

    Love,
    Travis and Allyson Smith
