Why We Love This Place Wednesday: Nick Hibbitts

By Terra Avilla

I do like me a good social media account. I have found a hobby in making TikTok videos, detailing my life, and as much as people always tell me that I have found TikTok success, let me tell you about another local person who has over 1.1 million followers on Tik alone, and over 69k on Instagram.

His video account is certain to make you laugh, and if you know him in person, he is equally as funny. I am talking about Nick Hibbitts.

Now, Nick is not my feature for this week because of his massive social media following. Nick is my feature because of who he is as a person. There is a reason over a million people watch his videos, invite them to their music shows, and subscribe to his channel – Because he is wonderful.

Nick’s sense of humor is absolutely unbeatable. When I say it’s impossible to be in a bad mood when you are around him, I mean it.

But aside from making you laugh, Nick is thoughtful, and hardworking, and when I say he would stop and help any of you on the side of the road, I mean it.

Nick is locally grown, as I like to say, and so I’m sure even if you don’t follow him online, you are most likely familiar with him. Nick takes his physical fitness seriously and worked as a trainer at Anytime Fitness.

I would watch him help people in the gym. Being a newbie in a gym is incredibly intimidating, but watching Nick interact with people he was training, made me love that guy.

He was so incredibly patient and welcoming, going out of his way to make sure the person he was helping was comfortable. He has a knack for making everyone feel included and comfortable. The way in which he can get along with anyone, no matter their background, is truly a gift. And it’s a gift he has mastered.

Outside of the gym, I had the distinct pleasure of having Nick be my postal carrier, and I truly enjoyed seeing his signature bushy beard delivering my mail every day. He always seemed in a good mood, and took time to say hi, even though I knew he was busy.

Currently, Nick works for the City, and I am certain they all appreciate the atmosphere Nick creates in his work environment.

But you guys, I need to tell you about the reason that I really love Nick. The way Nick loves and treats his family is absolutely beautiful. Nick is married to his wonderful wife, Stevie. They have two beautiful babies together, and anyone who has been around Nick and his family for more than three seconds will easily attest to how much he adores them.

Last week, I was walking back from the soccer fields to my car with my motley crew and I saw the Hibbitts family. (They are hard to miss, as Stevie and her kids look like little models running around Susanville ) Nick had no idea I watching, as he walked Stevie and their babies to her car, and kissed her, kissed his son, and helped them get in the car, rubbed his son’s head, said something about how proud he was of his kiddo for his effort in his soccer game.

Nick made sure his family was all set to go, before turning to walk across the parking lot to his own car. That small moment is indicative of why I love that guy.

Yes, he is hilarious. Yes, I am sure he is the life of the party. But at the end of the day, Nick is a family man, who always puts others first, and I have no doubt if given the chance millions and millions of people would love him too, because before he was “TikTok famous” he was and will always be, one of the reasons I love the place we live.
