Nick G. Gandolph

August 29, 1951 — February 18, 2015


On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, Nick Gandolph age 63 felt it was time to
"Kick the bucket."

Nick was born on August 29, 1951, in Madison, Wisconsin; and spent his
early days with his military family in France. As a young boy at Dudgeon/
Cherokee schools, he did neighborhood jobs and had paper routes. Later on,
Nick moved on to life at Madison West High School; where he was known to be
an excellent athlete.

After life at West High Greco spent his hippie days at UW Platteville, where
his father Nick also attended. Nick really enjoyed his time at Platteville; and the
local establishments. Nick's time at college was cut short to enlist in the US
Army, " After pulling the 32 ball in the lotto system". Nick loved bombing
around in his M60 tank. When army life ended, Nick returned to UW Platteville
to earn his degree in industrial education. Nick was employed for many years at
Badger Welding Supplies, until the day he used the snow blower to bury the
boss's car in a dispute over his work hours.

His hobbies included his passion for managing many city league sport
teams. The coed teams were his favorite. Greco was a diehard Iowa Hawkeyes
and Detroit Lions fan, affectionately known as "Mister Detroit.'

Nick was very proud of his family. He is survived by his brothers, Tony and
Steve; his sister, Karwin; his special sister-in-law, Jacki; his nieces, Jovita
(David), and Gina (James); his nephews, Joe and Luc; great-nieces, Ayla and Eja (Gandolfo-Brody); new great-nephew Nico (Gandolfo-Guenthner).

Greco was preceded in death by his "Pops', Nick, who he respected greatly;
and he sure hurt over the loss of his little brother, Vince Vito. He missed his
sweetheart mother, Dorothy, most of all; who devoted many years to care for
her son. Nick will be forever grateful for her loving touch.

At Nick's request, there will be no visitation or funeral. Greco was a good, decent person...to all of us. However, over the years, he had a struggle with
injuries and troubles in life. Finally in the end it was just too much for him to
bear. For most of us he always stayed that good, decent person. "GO DETROIT!"
