Nick was born on Aug. 27, 1940, in Grenfell, SK, to Nick and Eva (Flegel) Rogalski. He grew up on the family farm near Killaly, SK.
Nick attended Regina Teacher’s College, returning home to teach at Mariahilf School, Wymer School and Stockholm School.

Nick had a lifelong love of motorcycles. Over the years, he was a member of the German Club, Deer Park School Board and the Thresherman’s Club.
