On April 29, 1998, Peggy and Phil Pagliaro and their daughter, Hanna, received a blessing in the form of Nicolas James Pagliaro. He possessed the ability to light up a room with just a smile, even from an early age. He had compassion for the meek and wasn’t afraid to stand up to the Goliaths of this world. He received a citizenship award for his kindheartedness toward a fellow classmate.
Nick (Pags) was a freshman at Steamboat Springs High School, where he participated in football (playing as a wide receiver) and played the trumpet in the school band. He always had a love for baseball and actively was involved in the Steamboat Springs Little League team. He not only had a passion for all sports, but he also enjoyed keeping up with his favorite pro teams and their various statistics.
As the result of an auto accident that occurred on the way home from a cousin’s wedding Dec. 2, 2012, Nick went home to be with the Lord. He is survived by his parents, Phil and Peggy (Hatle); his sister, Hanna; as well as his loving grandparents, aunts, uncles and many cousins.
Nick will be missed greatly by all.
