Nicholas John Daversa, 33, of Schenectady, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly October 18th, 2021.
Nicholas was born October 12, 1988 in Niskayuna. He is survived by his loving parents Dean and Laurie Daversa of Rexford, his cherished sister Tiara (Nicholas) Hurd, and his adored nephew and niece Elijah and Julianna Hurd of Schenectady. Nicholas is also survived by his paternal grandmother, Joan Daversa of Schenectady, his maternal grandmother, Melody Sheldrick, his godparents Christine Raimo and Bob Moran, in addition to several Aunts, Uncles, cousins and friends.
Nick was predeceased by his paternal grandfather, John Daversa Jr., his maternal grandfather, Lester Sheldrick, his Aunt Denise Daversa, and his favorite canine friend of 17 years, Sammy Sam, in addition to several other dear great Aunts and Uncles.
Nicholas had a brilliant mind and excelled in his education. Upon graduating from Shenendehowa in 2008, he was awarded an academic presidential scholarship to Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA. Nicholas went on to study Biochemistry and maintained a 4.0 average for 3 1/2 years. He was truly gifted.
Due to the onset of an illness in 2011, he was forced to return home to be cared for by his family. Prior to the onset, Nicholas received multiple presidential awards for having/maintaining the highest average in his classes. With his photographic memory, learning was always something that came with ease his entire education. Nicholas was a perfectionist. Anything less was just not acceptable academically.
Nicholas loved spending time with his family. He especially loved Mom and Grams homemade meals. Second helpings always a must! And don't ever skip dessert. Nick loved playing and goofing around with his nephew Elijah, and Elijah loved his uncle Nicky with all of his heart. He was definitely at kid at heart.
Nicholas was kind, caring, compassionate and a true gentleman. He was loved by all who met him. He enjoyed bowling, dirt bike riding, and especially playing his electric guitars and jamming out with his Dad. He always insisted he was a better shredder! Kept telling Dad to keep practicing. Nicholas left an impact on everyone he met. He will be missed by all. Heaven just gained another angel.
