Our Hero Nick
Last Saturday, Tarrywile Park & Mansion helped say goodbye to a young man who was truly loved. The following was taken from the GoFundMe page established to help the family with his burial costs.
Nick LaDelfa was born on 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 2007-2009. 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 Til 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.
