Nicholas Alexander (Niko) Dalbec, 22, died December 17, 2013. Nicholas was born in Peterborough, New Hampshire, on February 22, 1991, and grew up in Milford. A graduate from Milford High School, Class of 2009. Son of Doreen Dalbec and Jean Dalbec, a loving brother to Sierra Dalbec and Christopher Condon.
Aside from being a loyal brother and son, he was also the greatest friend someone could have. Nick held such a unique energy and view of the world, which he expressed in many different ways. His art told stories of another place, beyond this Earth. His photography showed the beautiful perspective at which we should view the world. His pottery was always perfect. His writing professed truth and wisdom, a glimpse into the private world between here and there. A natural born artist, Nick was at peace in a world of creation. He experienced the greatest moments of euphoria surrounded by nature, and has always been one to suggest an adventure. Nicholas held spiritual beliefs, and knew that life was precious. He was good at every new task he took on, and would always lend a hand to someone who may need it. Those who knew him, knew him as kind, gentle, compassionate, and silly with the most contagious laugh. Nick has a smile that could brighten anybody’s day. He always looked for the positive in every situation. Nick had wanted to spend his life helping others; he was a truly deep, empathic soul. He is remembered for many things, one of the most profound being his ability to show others what true excitement and passion was.
He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Louis and Jeanette Deprey of Fort Kent, ME, and his cousin, Curtis Deprey of Chandler, AZ.
In addition to his parents, Nick is survived by his sister, Sierra Dalbec of Geelong, Victoria, Australia; and his brother, Christopher Condon of Manchester, NH; uncles, Harold Deprey of Chandler, AZ, Dana Deprey and his wife, Carol, of St. Agatha, ME, Charlie Dalbec and his wife, Teresa, Michael Dalbec and his wife, Irene, Louis Dalbec and his wife, Patricia, and Paul Dalbec; his aunts, Louise Charette and her husband, Dale, of Fort Kent, ME, Paula Deprey of Fort Fairfield, ME, and Elizabeth Rearick and her husband, Thomas; and many cousins.
