Obituary

On Monday, September 12, 2022, Nicholas “Nicky” R. Christopher, Jr., was welcomed into Heaven, into the loving arms of God. He was a beloved husband, son, brother, nephew, father, step-father, son-in-law, uncle, Godfather, great-uncle, friend, as well as many other special titles, to those who deeply loved him and will greatly miss him.

 

Nick was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, until such time as his family moved to Williamstown, NJ.  Nick attended St. Mary’s Catholic School and later, Williamstown, High School,where he excelled at playing tennis and soccer.  Upon his graduation from High School, he began working at a dental lab in Mays Landing and continued there until opening his own dental lab. Nick’s goal was to escape the harsh NJ winters and move to Florida.  He left the winters behind and moved to Florida in 2015 where he took a position as a finish carpenter – here he found his niche as a custom builder.  His meticulous woodworking skills were second to none and when he retired in 2021, he began making custom projects which are beyond belief. He could make anything out of anything.

 

Nick loved listening to music, played guitar, piano and keyboard and was always singing whichever song suited him at the moment. He was a dedicated Philadelphia Flyers and Eagles fan and and also followed and watched, when he could, Italian League Soccer. He was an accomplished pilot and spent time building radio-controlled airplanes.  He at one time owned a mustang and corvette, both of which were treasured.  He loved to express his creativity either through music or anything that he could build with his hands.  When they said he could not build and maintain a golf green in his own backyard – he proved them wrong and would have an annual tournament, on his own golf green, in his back yard, which he dubbed Orange Fox Country Club.  He truly valued time with his family and friends and often hosted gatherings at his home to show off his barbeque skills.

 

Nick’s heart and light of his life is his son Dominic.  He spent countless hours at soccer games, hockey tournaments and lacrosse matches, making sure no matter what it was, that he never missed a moment to be with his son.  Upon moving to Florida, Nick cherished his time with Dominic often going fishing in the canal, golfing, kicking around the soccer ball and just hanging out, ribbing each other and laughing. Many hours were spent together cheering on the Flyers, Eagles and watching soccer.  These were Nick’s happiest moments.

 

Nick had a warm welcoming smile that lit up the room and made people feel comfortable immediately and many strangers became friends.  He will always be remembered for his quick-witted sense of humor and his ability to make people laugh.  Nick made everything better for everyone.
