Lansdowne Remembers Nick Micozzie
We are deeply saddened by the passing of retired Pennsylvania State Representative Nicholas A. Micozzie. Mr. Micozzie secured the funding to establish the Historic Lansdowne Theater Corporation and to purchase the landmark Lansdowne Theater. He also secured a $3 million PA Redevelopment Assistant Capital Program grant which is at the core of the funding that will enable the building to be restored and reopened. Mr. Micozzie served as an unofficial advisor to the board until his passing.
Beyond the theater, Mr. Micozzie led efforts in Lansdowne to restore the Lansdowne Railroad Station, Lansdowne World War Monument, Lansdowne World War II Memorial, and to create Sycamore Park. It would be difficult to find a community/arts/educational/civic group in Lansdowne that Mr. Micozzie did not assist in some way. Our community would be very different without these important historical and cultural resources that he helped to save. In Lansdowne's 125+-year history you would be hard-pressed to find someone who has been a better friend to Lansdowne than Mr. Micozzie.
He was always the champion of the people and communities he was elected to represent. Nick will be remembered for his kindness, loyalty, humor, and good works.
Our condolences go out to Nick’s wife, June, and children Kathleen, Kelly, and Tom and to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We stand with you today and thank you for sharing Nick with us for so long.
