Lansdowne Borough passed a resolution on August 6, 2020, honoring the life and service of State Representative Nicholas Micozzie.
Nicholas Micozzie served in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for the 163rd District, which included the Borough of Lansdowne, during his 35 year tenure as a State Representative. Representative Micozzie worked tirelessly on behalf of the residents of Lansdowne in advocating for and securing funding for various projects both public and private in Lansdowne Borough and the greater Lansdowne Community. He was instrumental in securing aid from the State of Pennsylvania for the restoration of Hoffman Park and the Baltimore Pike bridge after the devastation of Hurricane Floyd. He was a champion of the Greater Lansdowne community and Delaware County and worked to preserve and develop park space for the community. Representative Micozzie advocated for and secured funding for the Darby Creek Greenway Trail through Hoffman Park, assisted in the purchase of the Sycamore Park property and secured funding to purchase and clear the property to create a community park, preserving the 300 year old Sycamore tree.
Nick Micozzie was a Korean War Veteran and in his service as a Representative secured funding to restore the World War Monument and World War II Monument at Penn Wood High School. The borough recognizes the sacrifices of the Micozzie family for the hours Representative Micozzie spent in service for the benefit of the community of Lansdowne. The borough lost a great friend when Representative Nicholas Micozzie passed on July 28th, 2020 and our thoughts and prayers are with the Micozzie family during this time.
Nick is survived by his beloved wife of 65 years June (Howard) Micozzie; his loving children Kathleen M. O’Connor (Guy), Thomas N. Micozzie (Susan), Kelly Ann Micozzie-Aguirre (Ernesto); grandchildren Nicole Kemmer (Rob), Colleen Heckman (Tim), Nina Tyre (Douglas), Guy O’Connor Jr. (Amanda) , Nicole Taylor (Mike), Anna Marie Aguirre and Domenique Aguirre and great grandchildren Andrew, Katelyn, Zachary, Olivia, Nicholas, Keagan, Elyse, David, Emily, Catherine, Michael, Matthew and Luke.
