Our hero Nick

Nick LaDelfa was born August 26, 1987. He was an E-5 Sgt, 572nd EN CO, 3rd Platoon. He was an army leader and served in Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2[phone redacted]. During his service a roadside IED caused an accident that left him with TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).  He suffered from headaches and severe pain as a result. After his service Nick went on to support many veteran organizations but the one closest to his heart was the Till Valhalla Project. He faithfully wore his wrist band acknowledging "22 a day" bringing awareness to those veterans lost to suicide. Nick was a gentle soul and a loving son, brother, nephew, cousin and a fierce friend to so many. We lost our hero on June 9, 2019 but he continued to be a hero in death by donating his organs for others. 

Although he was a veteran the family still has cremation and funeral expenses and would like to do a celebration of life for him on what would have been his 32nd birthday. Stories will be shared of Nick and how he touched each one of our lives.

Since Nick was a fan of music he will be remembered by playing some of his favorite artists such as Whiskey Myers, Blackberry Smoke, The Steel Woods and Bishop Gunn.  He believed in the power of healing in music and made so many friends during his life because of the connection with music. 

We ask that you donate whatever amount you can to provide this hero with a proper farewell.
