I remember Nick when he and his wife lived on Mace Street in Southwest Greensburg. He was a Pennsylvania State Trooper then. Nick was who you would rate as a good guy

My condolences to your family. Nick was truly one of a kind! I will never forget years ago walking in the John Woodruff race and hearing someone yelling "Smitty"! I turned around to see Nick Polidora. I was surprised-- after not seeing him for about 12 years, and the last time he saw me I was in high school--he still remembered me! But that was the type of person he was.....never forgot a face! He was very special, and I am sure will be missed greatly! You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
