Nicholas W. Florian, 34, of Southington, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 29, 2023. He was a proud father, beloved son, grandson, brother, uncle, cousin and friend to many.
Nick was born in New Britain on July 27, 1988, one of 5 children, to Michelle (Donadio) Florian and the late Mathew W. Florian.
Nick graduated from Southington High School, Class of 2007, where he excelled in sports, especially football, where he was named All-State two years in a row and still holds various school records for his offensive prowess. His athletic abilities were only matched by his appetite for learning new information. He enjoyed engaging in conversations with friends and family on topics ranging from the Minnesota Vikings to theories of the multiverse. All who knew him well can attest that his passion for debate and his ability to carry conversations only drew you closer to him. This presence, while often dominating, was always a ray of light and positive energy in the room.
Nick’s over-sized heart and youthful energy made him an admirable father to his two sons. Understanding and encouraging his sons’ passions were among some of his most fulfilling activities, whether it be teaching one son to catch a football or teaching the other how to solve a Rubik’s Cube. He valued family above all, which has made a profound impact on all those around him.
In addition to his mother Michelle, Nick is survived by his cherished sons, Tucker Anthony and Joshua Joseph and 4 siblings, Mathew Wayne Florian of Southington, Alana Michelle Florian and her husband Glenn Jordi of Hamden, Mark Nicholas Florian and Anthony Michael Florian of Southington. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews, Reagan, Wesley, Ava and Troy, his grandparents, David and Honey Florian of Southington and Nicholas and Lucille Donadio of St. Augustine, FL, the mother of his children, Alisha DelBuono of Southington and a large loving extended family, including many aunts, uncles and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Nick’s memory may be made to The Tucker & Joshua Florian Education Fund, c/o Liberty Bank, 60 N. Main St. Southington CT 06489.
