Nick Ciomo

1934 - 2023

OBITUARY

Nick Ciomo, of Capistrano Beach, CA, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 surrounded by his loving daughters, Luiza and Antoanela.


Nick was born in Bucharest, Romania, on July 3, 1934. He was the son of the late Parascheva (Biju) and Tascu Ciomo and brother to the late George Ciomo. In 1963, Nick graduated from the Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest with an Engineering degree, specializing in railway operations.


Nick was married to his loving wife, Caroline, for over 55 years. Together they raised two daughters. In 1978 they, along with his mother, emigrated to the United States. Professionally he held positions designing pipe supports for Nuclear Power Plants all over the United States and Canada. For most of the 1980s, when not working on location, his office was located on the 87th floor of Two World Trade Center. He loved working in the Twin Towers and viewed them as symbols of America's prosperity. Nick embraced the American dream and took every opportunity professionally and personally that was presented to him. He often worked overtime and took on second jobs to ensure his family was taken care of. He was a selfless father, husband and son, always being there for his family in every possible way and always offering them sound, pragmatic advice.


When his wife was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, he took on the role of caretaker for nearly thirty years until she passed in 2016. He did this quietly, with a resolve few people own. He was often lauded for his supportive and detail oriented care of her and took great pride in ensuring she was comfortable and maintained her dignity.


In 2000, he and Caroline retired to Southern California to enjoy the benefits of yearly sunshine with the added bonus of living close to his brother, George. There they met many neighbors in their serene community of Mill Pond Estates. Always the engineer, Nick became the unofficial handyman to many residents, never wanting compensation, just an appreciation of his work. He loved the social aspect of helping others and illustrating his expertise in all things mechanical.


Nick was an avid tennis player and he continued to play into his late 80s. He and Caroline enjoyed their vacations with close friends in Mexico.


Nick was fortunate to have three wonderful caretakers who made the last few years of his life happy and social. They enabled him to live in the home he loved with dignity and love.


Nick will be dearly missed by his daughter Luiza, her husband Rob,and their children Nicolette and Aidan and his daughter Antoanela, her husband Scott, and their children Emma and Brett.
