October 20, 2021

December 30, 1964 – October 14, 2021
Cornwall, NY

Nicholas Anthony Corea of Cornwall, NY, entered into eternal rest on October 14, 2021 at Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY after a brief illness. He was 56 years old.

The son of the late Nicholas A. Corea and Mary Louise (Altmann) Corea, Nick was born on December 30, 1964 in Cornwall, NY.

Nick’s culinary talents were shared in various establishments in New York and Colorado. In 2001, Nick opened Nicky’s at the Storm King Theater. It was for New Year’s Eve in 2001, that Nick created Nicky’s New Year’s Eve Ball Drop, which continues to be held every year in the Village Square. This year will be its 20th year anniversary.

Nick had an incredibly deep range of passions that spoke volumes about his character. His altruistic nature and comedic sharpness resonated with many-creating friendships and first impressions that lasted a lifetime. Nick was a brilliant chef, an artistic soul, a captivating storyteller with a larger than life personality. His kindness was treasured by more people than he ever knew. The rock of our family has crumbled. Nick’s presence will be so greatly missed but his impact will live on with all of us forever.

Nick is survived by his loving mother: Mary Louise Corea at home; his sister: Patricia Ann Corea of Cornwall-On-Hudson, NY; and 4 nieces and nephews: John Lujan, Nikki Lujan Fraad, Rebecca Lujan and Michael Lujan. He is also survived by many cousins, friends and will be missed by the whole community.
