Nick passed away peace­fi­illy on Fe­bru­ary 24, 2017 at the Drumheller Acute Care Fa­cil­ity af­ter a long bat­tle with COPD. He is sur­vived by his three sons, David (Me­lanie), Talon of Drumheller, and Nolan of New York, Jim, Larry (Ch­eryl) Tay­lor, Tan­ner and Rachel of Cal­gary.

Nick was born on his par­ents Joe and Marie Mas­cian­gelo’s home­stead, at the foot of the Hand­hills and at­tended Ge­orge­town School un­til Grade 9. He worked at a dairy in Drumheller while tak­ing book­keep­ing at night school. He also worked for Archie and Gor­don Dodd on the farm in Mor­rin and then onto Re­gent Drilling. He even­tu­ally moved to Cal­gary and be­came a meat cut­ter with Safe­way. Nick and Au­drey met in Cal­gary and mar­ried in April, 1955. Nick then moved back to Delia in 1963 to open his own butcher shop, Nick’s Western Meats. Nick also farmed a half sec­tion of land south of Delia. Nick was a life­time mem­ber of the Elks and a mem­ber of the Delia Ag So­ci­ety. Nick even­tu­ally do­nated his store to the Ag So­ci­ety. Nick re­tired from the butcher shop in 1983, drove school bus for a while, worked for the M.D. of Bad­lands while Au­drey worked for the Delia Post Of­fice. They trav­elled with sev­eral cou­ples to Ari­zona for many years and even­tu­ally moved to Cal­gary. In 2011 they moved back to Drumheller, the area that they called home. A spe­cial thank you to Dr. Gra­ham and Dr. Ram and to the staff of Drumheller Acute Care. Also a big thank you to all the staff at the Drumheller Sun­shine Lodge and to Marnie and Kristina and their Home­care staff that cared for Nick for so many years. There are many of you who made the days for Nick so much bet­ter and your kind­ness meant so much to David and the fam­ily! There will be a Cel­e­bra­tion of Life for Nick at the Delia Com­mu­nity Hall at 1:30 on Satur­day, March ll. Do­na­tions can be made in mem­ory of Nick to the Drumheller Sun­shine Lodge at the Drumheller and District Se­niors Foun­da­tion.
