Nicholas Aaron Gummersall
POCATELLO - Nicholas Aaron Gummersall, 23, was born in Pocatello, Idaho, on October 24, 1983, to Clay Gummersall and Carol Gummersall.
Nick was a graduate of Century High School, class of 2002, where he was active in football, where he brought home back-to-back state titles, baseball, wrestling and track. He was an amazing athlete. After high school he red-shirted for the Idaho State Bengals. His true passion was football.
Nick knew that he was meant to make a difference in many lives, so on September 30, 2003, he enlisted in the Army. He would later become an Airborne Ranger 2nd Battalion, "Ten feet tall and bullet proof," Nick Gummersall.
Nick was the second son of six kids. He is survived by his mom and dad, Carol and Clay; best friend and older brother, Casey, 24; his sister-in-law, Haley, 23; his baby sisters, Kristine, 21, Kamie, 18, Kadee, 13; and his mini-me, Derek, 15.
Nick was so full of life with never-ending dreams and goals. He had a personality no one could ignore, or help but love. Everyone who came into contact with him was forever touched and a friend.
He will be sorely missed, always treasured and forever loved. Nick will live forever in our memories and our hearts.
Funeral services for Sgt. Gummersall, fallen soldier in Iraq, will be 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 17 at the Century High School football field, 7801 Diamondback Dr., Pocatello. The family will receive friends Thursday, Aug. 16 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Colonial Funeral Home, 2005 S. Fourth Ave., Pocatello. The public also is invited to visit a memorial erected in his honor at Colonial Funeral Home.
Condolences can be sent to the family online at www.colonial-funeralhome.com.

I served with your son in 2/75, we went through RIP togther and became good friends while improccesing at Ft. Lewis. We were assigned to the same company but diffrent platoons so as often happens we drifted apart. I partied with Nick and we spent some time in washington togther. He was a great man and will be sorely missed!

In Memory of Nicholas Aaron ~ (Debra Estep)
Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.


The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”


I did not know Nicholas, but I am remembering
his service. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

Love Lives On

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
far as long as there is memory,
they'll live on in the heart.

The Landstuhl Hospital Care Project has honored Sgt. Nicholas Gummersall with shipments of care and comfort items to wounded troops in military hospitals stateside and overseas. This includes the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany and field medical units in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have been reading about and talking with old friends about your courageous son. We are sorry for your loss, it seems like they take the good ones too soon.

Gumby man it really hurt to see your name on here. I was honored to be your first squad leader in Ranger Batt. I will never forget you brother! My family got to meet you and when I told them about you all I had to say was the guy with the big smile. I was always so proud of you and I know the other guys in our old squad are hurting to. You are a hero, but you always were!

I have never met Nick but my husband has and we are all very saddened by your loss, Nick is a hero, and it is because of the military personnel that we have over in these other country's that we have and enjoy the freedoms that we so selfishly take for granted. I mourn the loss of each and every soldier knowing that one day it may be me with the direct loss, thank you to your family for the sacrifice that you too have made and to Nick for being our hero. He and Blake Stephens will never be forgotten and I pray that this town will will never have to lose another soldier.God has his army and what a fine one it is.
God bless you all at this time of sorrow

To the Family and Friends of this Soldier:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless legacy.com for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.

There is nothing that I can say or do to take away the pain or bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer you and your family my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.

Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.

I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON, a dear family friend who joined the Army with three other friends, one of whom is my son (Le Ron was killed in action on 07/06/07 at the age of 18) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across www.legacy.com, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.

REST IN PEACE, HERO, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

For Nick's family and friends,

I don't know Nick, but I know the heart that makes a hero what he is. As you feel his loss, we in his community will revere him as a selfless soul of the newest "great generation". His service to me and mine will never be taken for granted. We will honor him through our commitment to the ideals that he fought for and that make this country great.

I am reminded of a quote from George Orwell....

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf"

My son deploys in September and he will carry on the fight for Nick and the other rough men who have protected us throughout history.

May peace soon replace your sorrow. And know these things....your community is behind you and we will always remember Nick as being the best of us all, and that he resides in heaven, bathed in the peace of God's love.

What a sad day for us all in Pocatello, Idaho, when we heard the news about Nick. My son, David, and Nick played football together at Century High School and they graduated in the same class. He was a great kid and we loved to watch him play football. Nick was a star, an all around great guy and a hero. The day of Nick's death was also the day of our son's birthday, so it was a mixture of emotions for us all. May God Bless Clay, Carol and the family at this very sad time.

My Deepest and Most Heartfelt Sympathy goes out to the family of Sgt. Nicholas A. Gummersall, with a Multitude of Thanks for this Brave Young Soldier's Courage, Dedication and Service to our Country and for Freedom.

The price Nicholas and his family have paid, Will Never Be Forgotten. May he Rest Safely, in God's Care and may the Peace of God be with the Gummersall family.
I am the Sister of such a young hero, who made the Ultimate Sacrifice in Vietnam, many years ago

"Surely He hath borne our grief,
and carried our sorrows."
~ Isaiah 53:4 ~

May you find comfort and strength, in the beautiful memories of times spent with Nicholas.
Quietly and gently, may healing come, with each new day.
You are in my thoughts and my prayers.
