Nicola “Nick” Forte, age 60, passed away suddenly on Thursday, August 6, 2020. Born in Port Colborne, Ontario, son of the late Antonio and Italia (Notte) Forte. Nick is survived by his true love and best friend of 29 years Elia (Zanin) Forte. Proud and much-loved father to his two boys, Lucas and Justin (Alix). Nick was a very humble, devoted and modest man. Family always came first; he was the pillar everyone leaned on. Nick enjoyed his over 30 years teaching with the London District Catholic School Board, advocating with OECTA, and his time spent serving on the Ontario College of Teachers. He served on the Board of directors of Family Services Perth-Huron. He was a member of St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church and a member of the Knights of Columbus Kilroy Council 1431. While passionate about sports and politics, his true devotion was his family.
