Shrewsbury

Nicholas Pacé D’Antilio, 20, of Shrewsbury, passed away after a courageous eight-month battle with cancer, Monday, May 6, 2024.

Born in Worcester on June 25, 2003, to Derek and Gisselle (Alin) D’Antilio. Raised in Worcester and Shrewsbury, Nicholas attended St. John’s High School and was a graduate of the class of 2021. After graduating high school Nicholas went on to attend the University of Rhode Island with a major in Environmental and Animal Studies. Nicholas worked part-time at Davidian Farms both in the store and taking care of the animals he loved. He had also done an internship at the Shrewsbury Community Animal Hospital and last summer was a lifeguard at the YMCA.

Renowned for his kind heart, empathy, and generosity, Nicholas cherished his family and friends. He was a wonderful big brother who was always there to guide his two younger brothers. He loved to be a part of all the family traditions and taking vacations with his family especially to his happy place, Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. Nicholas was an avid outdoors person and loved to swim, hike, kayak, and absolutely loved all animals. 

Nicholas was predeceased by his grandmother, Nancy D’Antilio; his grandfather, Jorge Alin; and his uncle, George Alin.

In addition to his beloved parents, Nicholas was the best role model for his adored brothers, Alex and Christopher D’Antilio; his cherished grandparents, Eva Alin and Ralph D’Antilio; his dog, Buddy; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
