Nitty was born in Booth Memorial Hospital in Queens, New York and moved to Omaha before turning 1. He soon fell in love with football and grew to be the Cornhusker fan we all know him to be.
Early in life he worked for the Omaha Royals including his time as Casey the Mascot. Nitty then worked at Best Buy and later for Omaha Public Power District (OPPD). At OPPD Nitty was a leader and shined as he put both customers and his fellow employees first. He left a legacy as a problem solver and lived the Core Values of OPPD. In all these roles he interacted with respect and a true desire to make the day better.
Nitty found joy in the success of others. He lived a life of service. Nitty will be remembered as a kind, patient, respectful and generous person.
