Nick A. Willoughby, 51, of Superior, WI passed away while surrounded by his family on September 13th, 2021 from complications due to a heart attack. Nick was born on November 15th, 1969 in Duluth, MN to Tony and Bette Willoughby. He was a 1988 graduate from Superior Senior High School. In his early years he loved playing basketball, riding horses, and racing dirt bikes. After graduation Nick worked at Lafarge Cement Plant until he and his former wife, Laura Stauty, moved to New Richmond, WI where he attended college and obtained his Master’s Electrician Degree. During this time, Nick and Laura were blessed with two wonderful sons, Evan and Austin, who were his pride and joy. Nick also found time to renovate and sell three houses, not long before designing and building his own home. Nick was a jack of all trades. He worked at Willow River Electric before deciding to return to his hometown of Superior, WI to open his own electrical business. Nick owned and operated Lake City Electric for many years as well as worked for the Minnesota DOT as the Supervising Electrician. Nick also owned and operated Drifters Trail Bar in Patzau, WI, calling it his “side gig”. He sponsored many dart, pool, bowling, and horseshoe teams in which he also liked to participate in. Nick has always had an itch for adrenaline and was not afraid to let it show. He raced dirt bikes and three-wheelers, rode snowmobiles like a mad man, and was eager to get his pilots license. Nick loved spending time outdoors; whether it was coaching his son’s sports teams, boating/water sports, camping, golfing, listening to live music, riding snowmobiles/ATV’s, or hunting and fishing. One of Nicks favorite things to do was unplug and go elk hunting in the Colorado Rocky Mountains with his family and friends. Nick was a simple, kind, fun, loving, and down to earth man; or as he would call himself “a simple country boy”. He accepted everyone and made sure everybody felt welcome. Nick is survived and sadly missed by his two sons; Evan Willoughby and Austin Willoughby (Allyssa Roach), mother; Bette Willoughby, sister; Lena (Jeff) Greenfield, brother; Dave (Lisa) Willoughby, sister; Karla (Joe) Van Overmeiren, and his girlfriend Cindy Hammarlund. He is also survived by his many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great niece, great nephews, and many, many, cousins, and wonderful friends. Nick was preceded in death by his dear father, Tony Willoughby, one week prior to Nicks passing, as well as grandparents, aunts, and uncles. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Your presence will surely be missed; “BRING IT IN”.
