Retired steelworker from Bethlehem Steel Corp., Johnstown and Sparrows Point, Maryland. Following retirement, he enjoyed working security for Gittings Security, Ebensburg. Nick was an avid Steelers fan (though he was deeply disappointed by their lackluster performance this year), he also enjoyed hunting and was a jokester who could find humor in almost any situation (except the Steelers losing, there’s nothing funny about that.)
