Nick Victor Giovinazzo Obituary
April 16, 1928 - August 1, 2015 Nick Victor Giovinazzo, 87, Educator, Athlete, Coach, Handicapper, Horse Owner/Trainer, Family Patriarch, Iconoclast, Innovator, Motivator, and "Pa" to many, has died at his home in Solana Beach, Ca., August 1, 2015, and is survived by the love of his life for nearly 70 years, wife Lois, and many, many family members. Since retiring from Los Angeles Valley College 30 years ago, Nick settled in Solana Beach so that he and Lois could enjoy the beautiful coast, accommodate and entertain friends and family, and be close to his beloved horses at the Del Mar Race Track. During this time he served his community in many capacities, Board of Directors of his condo association, Director of Parks and Recreation for Solana Beach, and even into his 80's, Nick was delivering day-old bread to community members in need. The first 57 years of Nick's life are best summed up in an article in the L.A. Times from 1986: http://articles.latimes.com/print/1986-01-24/sports/sp-23915_1_valley-college A celebration of life will take place on the bluff at Seascape Sur, overlooking the ocean, at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 15, 2015. Friends and family are welcomed to join us at their condo as we continue to celebrate his legacy.
