He was born to the late George and Olga Nirdlinger of Jersey City, NJ. He also was preceedeed in death to his brothers Edwin and Harvey Nirdlinger. In New Jersey he worked on the Pennsylvania Railroad, and was a semi-truck driver for Sears and Roebucks. In 1971 he moved to DeLand, FL and worked at Sherwood Medical for 10 years where he then retired. He was a tough man on those he loved, and it was because he had a heart of gold. He enjoyed fishing, good comedy, and reading. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him, until we see him again. "There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go."
