Nicholas Chiarella

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved son, Nicholas Aaron Chiarella, 29, of Bristol. Nicholas was born on October 26, 1991 in Oceanside, CA at Camp Pendleton to Tammy (Morin) Tyson and Gary Chiarella and left this world unexpectedly on July 10, 2021.

Passionate about anything he set his mind to, Nick started working when he was 15 years old at Hen House BBQ in Southington. He was a member of the Southington High School football team, and a graduate of the Class of 2009. In addition to football, Nick excelled in other sports, eventually playing baseball at the University of Valley Forge where he was also named to the 2018 Patriotic All-Academic Team for academic excellence, lending credence to his nickname, “The Professor”. He also had a talent and love for the game of golf.

Nick was full of adventure. After high school he took a road trip, driving Route 66 and continued on to his birthplace, Camp Pendleton Hospital in Oceanside, CA. He was the proud son of a United States Marine.

Challenges found their way into Nick’s life, but he was able to overcome, persevere and find the good in any situation. He graduated from Teen Challenge and Turning Point New England. A soft heart and kind soul, Nick had an innate ability to connect with people from all walks of life. Most recently, he worked as a salesman at Trinity Solar of Cheshire.

Nick is survived by his mother Tammy Tyson and her husband John of Bristol and his father, Gary Chiarella and Susan Kristofik of Plainville, his maternal grandmother Julia Morin of Bristol and his paternal grandmother, Regina Chiarella of Mahopac, NY and his cherished rescue dog and best friend, Bella.

He is also survived by his uncles, Larry Morin and Michael Chiarella and his aunts, Annemarie Marrone, Tina Metesky, Gina Schum and Marianne Chiarella and several cousins. Nick was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Jerome Morin and paternal grandfather, Francis Chiarella.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Nick’s memory may be made Turning Point New England, 83 Bellevue Ave, Bristol, CT 06010 (https://turningpointct.org).

Calling hours will be held from 5 – 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at the Plantsville Funeral Home, 975 S. Main St, Plantsville. Burial will be held privately and at convenience of the family. For online condolences and directions, please visit www.plantsvillefuneralhome.com.

With deepest heartfelt sympathy, I share my thoughts and prayers for the entire family. Nicholas was a very kind, loving son. I will remember the laughter and fun we enjoyed during those school years watching our boys playing football and the grid iron club meals before and after the games. My love embraces the entire family with prayer, sending God's everlasting love and comfort during this time of sorrow and loss. Love you Nicholas may you rest peacefully in the Lord's home now.
