Nicholas was born the son of Les Lecceardone and Michele A Jerome-Maglier on Tuesday, December 30, 1980, in North Hornell, NY. He attended Red Jacket High School and worked independently as a landscaper. Nick loved spending time with his kids and watching them play sports more than anything. He also enjoyed the outdoors, nature, attending concerts, and writing poems and songs.
Nick will be remembered by his parents, Les (Linda) Lecceardone and Michele (Marty) Jerome; his devoted partner, Alicia - Marie Lassiter; children Nathaniel (Chris), Natalie (Emily), and Lucas; siblings Tony (Charlotte) Lecceardone, Joshua (Tierra) Jerome, Jordan Jerome, Jacob Jerome, Jeramy, Lynn Marie and Joshua; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and his faithful four - legged friend, Bojack.
Nick will be genuinely missed by everyone who knew him and was a friend to all.
His children and brothers wanted to share a phrase or song lyric that best reminded them of Nick.
Nate (his oldest child): "I'll fly a starship Across the Universe divide, And when I reach the other side, I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can. Perhaps I may become a highwayman again, Or I may simply be a single drop of rain, But I will remain, And I'll come back again and again And again and again and again and again And again."
Natalie (his middle child): "I love you shipoopi"
Luke (his youngest child): "Who's the best buddy?" and "always end on a good note."
Tony (brother): "Best big little brother"
Josh (brother): "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain."
Jordan (bother): "Each one, teach one."
Jake (brother) "You gotta keep on keepin' on. Life's a garden: dig it. You gotta make it work for you."
Alicia (wish-loving life companion): "Water finds its own level" -njl Forever, we will flow.
In loving memory of our dear brother and father, Nicholas, who will forever be remembered as a caring, free-spirited soul who brought joy and love to all who knew him. Love you g
"Thanks for coming into work today"- nlj
