Private funeral services for Mr. Nicholas John Deljudice, of Anniston, will be at a later date. Mr. Deljudice passed away on November 13, 2020 at NHC. Mr. Deljudice was a native of Brooklyn, NY and came to Alabama as a young soldier stationed at Ft. McClellan. He retired as a Sergeant First Class from the United States Army after a career of almost 26 years and was a veteran of both the Korean and Vietnam Wars. He was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal with 1 Silver Star and 1 Bronze Star, the Bronze Star Medal, a Presidential Unit Citation, a Meritorious Unit Commendation, the Good Conduct Medal four times, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, four Overseas Service Bars, the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Palm, the Army Commendation Medal with Third Oak Leaf Cluster, and the Expert Qualification Badge with the M-16 rifle. After his retirement from the Army, he was employed with the Anniston Housing Authority. Mr. Deljudice was a faithful member of Parker Memorial Baptist Church and was a dedicated teacher of the Street Sunday School Class and sang with the Sounds of Joy choir. He never met a stranger, always eager to lend a helping hand while entertaining with a joke, a story, or a song. He was truly the hands and feet of Jesus whether in his neighborhood, his community, or in another country. Mr. Deljudice was a graduate of Gadsden State Community College and Samford University Extension Division. Mr. Deljudice was a faithful and loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was loved and appreciated by his family and friends and was fondly referred to as Pappa Nick by his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Richardson (Marjorie) of Roswell, GA; five great grandchildren, Nicholas and Mary Ryan Hughes, and Amelia, Max, and Lucas Richardson; and a sister, Marie Palmeri.

Uncle Nick was a kind, kind man, quick with a smile and a story. He loved Jesus, and he shared the Gospel as he lived. I know he is rejoicing in Glory with our Savior.

Sending most sincere & heartfelt condolences to the Deljudice Family, and extended families.

I met Deljudice one time back on July 24th 1993 when I was 20 yrs. old. My dad was very close friends with him, as they served Our Country in the Army together. I remember that date precisely and probably will never forget it because 3 days later my dad passed away. I am so glad that one of his last memories was catching up with his old Army buddy there at the convenient store. It is also one of my last, great memories of my dad. To see them laugh, joke around and talk about old times. When I think back to that day 27 yrs. later, it still warms my heart greatly. My dad always, always spoke very highly of Deljudice. I only met him that one time when my dad took me by to meet him. But, they’d kept in touch throughout the years. Deljudice was very kind, down to earth, and genuinely friendly. They shared a lot of awesome memories. To the family, it is my prayer that your Faith in Our Lord will guide you through this tough time. R.I.P. Sarge. Thank you for your service. Job well done!

I was so saddened to read that
Mr. Deljudice had passed away. I first met this wonderful man and his wife, Jane when they visited the VA office in Anniston. I was the Veteran Service Officer and had the privilege of assisting him with benefits. He was the kindest person that I have ever met. His stories about his time in the military were boundless. In August of this year I was in rehab at NHC and our path crossed again. I will always cherish the time that we shared talking for what turned out to be our last. He told me that he couldn't wait to tell Jane that he had run into me. Praying for the repose of Mr. Deljudice's soul. Rest in peace. Thank you for your selfless service in the military, your love of God, and your family.
