|Nick Nassif Jr.
March 29, 1951 – August 6, 2017
|Nick Nassif Jr., 66, passed away Sunday, August 6, 2017, surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Cedar Rapids on March 29, 1951, to Nick Sr., and Lorry Nassif. Nick was a wonderfully-loved son, brother, father, uncle and grandfather who put all his heart and soul into everything he did.
Funeral services will be held 11:00 a.m. Friday, August 11, 2017, at the First Congregational Church, Anamosa. Pastor Mona Burns will officiate at the services. Interment will be in the St. George Cemetery, Cedar Rapids. Friends may call from 4 until 7 p.m. Thursday at the Goettsch Funeral Home, Anamosa, where a Trisagion Service will be held at 7:15 p.m. Fr. Fred Shaheen will officiate at the service.
Nick graduated from Anamosa High School in 1969 and attended ISU. Nick married Anita Clark in 1976, and they later divorced. Over the next several years, Nick managed shoe stores in Indiana and Des Moines. Eventually, Nick and his daughters moved back to his hometown of Anamosa where he bought his father’s business, Nick’s Shoe Clinic, and became a pillar in the community for more than sixteen years.
Nick was involved in all his daughters’ activities, supported the Anamosa High School marching band and spearheaded epic Class of ’69 events. His final business venture was purchasing the Shoe Doctor in Iowa City where he has worked for the past twenty-three years. But by far, his favorite pastime of all was spoiling his six grand kids with anything they ever asked for.
Nick is preceded in death by his infant daughter, Angela Mae, and his father, Nick Nassif, Sr. He is survived and will be greatly missed by his mother, Lorry Nassif of Anamosa; daughters Alycia Maxwell (Tom) of Central City and Danielle Woerth (Brian) of Ames; sister, Karen Lauterbach (Dennis) of West Des Moines; brothers, Steve Nassif and Brian Nassif (Julie) all of Anamosa; grandchildren, Aiden and Zachary Woerth, Alexa, Addyson, Amber and Liam Maxwell; and many nieces and nephews.
