Nicholas Vaughan died on June 12, 2017 at the age of 31. He was a dedicated father of two young children and beloved brother of his seven siblings. From a young age, Nicholas always looked after his family. As a survivor of childhood trauma, he was very protective of his family after the death of their father who was murdered in Baltimore, MD and the loss of their mother shortly after. As a father, he worked as a machine operator/truck driver to support his two daughters despite living with chronic pain from a medical condition and severe mental health challenges. Unfortunately as a result of his ongoing issues he ended his life. His aunt/adopted mother, Angela Vaughan Lee, is a valued employee and close friend of so many colleagues on the campus of the University of Maryland, Baltimore and within the National Child Traumatic Stress Network. We are seeking funds to help the family cover the cost of the memorial service and meet the needs of Nicholas’s children. The family appreciates your support.
