A Ridgefield man, 31, from Ridgefield who served in the Army and being remembered as having a "heart of gold" has died.
Nicholas P. LaDelfa died Sunday, June 10 at Danbury Hospital.
He was born Aug. 26, 1987 in Danbury to Pam LaDelfa and Ken Carpenter. LaDelfa attended Ridgefield schools and was a graduate of Ridgefield High School with the Class of 2005.
He enlisted in the U.S. Army upon graduation and served a 15-month tour in Iraq from 2007 to 2009. LaDelfa worked as a service technician at Professional Water Systems in Ridgefield.
He lived life through simple pleasures; talking to friends, listening to music, going to concerts, taking walks with his nephew, spending time with family, friends and his dog Don Enzolino Ferrari Ladelfa- Enzo for short. Anyone who knew him would say he had a heart of gold, an incredible sense of humor and was a fierce friend to so many.
He is survived by his mother Pam and father Ken, sister, Jennifer Bradshaw and her husband Doug, their son Jase and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
There will be a celebration of life for family and friends on Saturday, Aug. 24 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Tarrywile Park, 70 Southern Blvd. in Danbury.
