Nicholas Nierzejewski Noirot

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes, because for those who love with their heart and soul, there is no separation.” -Rumi

Nicholas Nierzejewski Noirot, 68, passed away Tuesday, October 17, 2017.

He was born in Ashtabula on January 23, 1949.

Nick grew up on Depot Road in Saybrook, Ohio where he had many fond memories, including walking home from his first day of kindergarten during recess much to the dismay of his teachers and parents.

As a young boy he delivered the “Grit” newspaper, earning 5 cents a week per paper, and would often save his money to take $5.00 helicopter rides at a small airport nearby.

During his high school years, he worked at George’s Greenhouse, where large Chrysanthemums were grown, and performed various odd jobs.

Nick was not a huge fan of riding the school bus, which led to him riding his Honda motorcycle back and forth to school, even at times when there was snow on the ground.

He graduated from Harbor High school in 1967 and attended Ohio State University.

He began his career at Reliance Electric in the Engineering Department. In 1973 he went to work for the former Webb Manufacturing, now CW Ohio, and worked his way up through the ranks until 1994 when he was named president. Under Nick’s leadership and direction CW Ohio has successfully integrated plastic and composite building products to its manufacturing processes. This diversification has allowed CW Ohio to continue to be a successful employer in this community.

From a young age Nick was a very competitive bowler, and he also loved to golf. Over the years he was a member of the Conneaut, Chapel Hill, Lakeview and Kahkwa Country Clubs. He also played over 40 softball for several years.

He traveled most of the country in his RV, and enjoyed winter vacations in Florida. An avid reader it was not uncommon for Nick to read more than one book a week. He was a huge Cleveland sports fan, especially the Browns, and was very proud of the fact that he had seen every super bowl.
Nick was often the life of the party, and was a great story and joke teller.

He and Kimberly often spent Sunday mornings at the Andover Flea market searching for treasures, and afternoons exploring country roads and practicing their photography skills.

Nick’s most relaxing times were spent mowing grass on his riding lawnmower with a Torpedo beer in the cup holder.

He lived by the motto that people don’t regret the things they do, they regret the things they don’t do, and so this past January Nick and Kimberly went skydiving in Florida. Nick was so grateful that he was able to accomplish this feat before he became ill.

“Geez Louise, I never thought it would end up like this, but who does? The good news is I had a couple of days advance notice to tell my family how much I love them.” (Nick Noirot 10/15/17)

Nick is survived by his wife, Kimberly; step sons, Bryan (Elizabeth) Scalise of Ashtabula and Jonathan Scalise of North Kingsville; very special granddaughter, Amelia Rose Scalise; as well as two daughters and their children; sister, Rosemary (Bryan Johnson) Beaver; brothers, Mike (Connie) Nierzejewski and Jerry (Alisa) Niezejewski; father in law, William Schreiber; mother and father in law, Charlie and Lorinda Lewis; brothers in law, Keith (Ida) Schreiber and Scott (Lilya) Schreiber; sisters in law, Jody (Pat) Davin and Sue (Bob) Walla; and long time friend and mentor, Gary Moore of White City, Oregon.

Nick was preceded in death by his father, William Noirot; step father, Chester Nierzejewski; mother, Jo Ann Nierzejewski; and granddaughter, Stella Rose Scalise.

Calling hours will be held from 4 – 6 PM with a memorial service to follow at 6 PM on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at ZABACK-WILLIAMS-DUCRO FUNERAL HOME, 500 West Prospect Rd, Ashtabula.

He retired from ESAB, where he worked as a wire coiler.

Bob’s time was always spent doing the things he loved with the ones he loved. He enjoyed listening to old country music, hunting, fishing, and grilling at family barbeques

She could relax with her family in a beautiful cabin, which she dreamed of owning one day. While at home, she loved sitting out on her sun porch with her coffee, enjoying the peaceful farmland. On a cool summer night, sitting around a fire watching the flames, was one of her favorite pastimes. She would be out there for hours as the night grew late. Janice also loved watching HGTV where she would get inspiration to start remodeling projects, which usually led to her husband and son jumping in and helping with her vision

Janice is survived by her husband Richard Eldred Jr., whom she married August 31, 1985, daughter Cassandra (Derek) Woodburn, son Justin Eldred, loving brother Mike (Cindy) Rinto, brother in-laws Lonnie Eldred, Rod (Rachel) Eldred, Myron (Ros) Eldred, sister-in-laws Joyce (Terry) Newhart, Julie (Gary) Funk, Joanne (Steve) Stover, along with many nieces and nephews.
