Firefighter Nicholas Rossomando

His nickname was “Nicky Love.” Even at the karate dojo, that’s what he was called. Nicholas Rossomando, 35, was one of those enthusiasts with a reputation for giving 1000% to anything he tried. His love of carpentry led him to start a home improvement business before he became a firefighter, and he kept it active as a side job thereafter. He built about 80% of his karate dojo, improved things around his firehouse, and “left his handprints” in many homes. He was a man’s man (“built like a steel tank”), who also loved to cook. His shift was just ending that Tuesday morning, but he rode in to the job with the other members of Rescue 5.
