Nicholas was born to Lynn Emery Revak and Bill Revak on April 12, 1996 in Youngstown. A longtime resident of the area, he attended St. Christine’s, graduated in 2014 from Ursuline High School and graduated in 2020 from Kent State University.
An avid reader, Nick treasured his books and the stories between the pages. One of his favorite series was Harry Potter. He loved movies and their imagination. Nick recently visited Disney World to see the wonder of Hogwarts firsthand as it lit up the sky. He was so amazed and grateful for this adventure.
Family vacations were a very special time for Nick. Mom would plan days when their next exciting week together would take them. The most memorable vacation for Nick would be the trip to New York, when the family watched one of the last games in the old Yankee Stadium and visited the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
As a child, Nick enjoyed playing and watching all kinds of sports. Nick was a karate student, played rugby while in college, played basketball and football for St. Christine’s, and loved baseball. It was obvious that as Nick grew older, baseball was his passion. He played baseball for Mill Creek Youth, Ursuline High School, Little B, and Big B. While playing for Ursuline, Nick and his team made it to the state finals. During his time with Little B and Big B, he made two trips to perform in Las Vegas.
Most recently, Nick was training to be an MMA fighter at Strong Style MMA in Independence. As part of his training, Nick did many runs in the beautiful Mill Creek Park. Nick always stopped to take a picture of nature’s beauty.
Nicholas was great at everything he did in life. He succeeded and always did his best. Nick was simply, Nick. A genuine soul who loved helping people. He was outgoing, humble and selfless. If you knew Nick it was a privilege because he loved his family and friends.
Nick is survived by his father, Bill Revak. He leaves behind his dog, Hercules; his uncles, Mike and Brandon Emery; his uncle, Aaron Revak; aunt, Victoria Revak; her grandmother, Sandy Revak; grandfather, Joseph Revak; and many cousins, great aunts and great uncles.
He was predeceased by his mother, Lynn Revak; grandmother, Faye Kiger Aliff; and grandfather, John Emery.
