Tim Nickos was an amazing
individual who lived every day to the fullest by inspiring and
motivating others through his contagious smile and great sense of humor. Tim
was to be the captain of the Oak Lawn Community High School varsity swim team
his senior year and was also a proud member of the OLCHS band. Most importantly,
Tim always provided for everyone around him. Tim was tragically taken from us
in his sleep at the young age of 17. He had a heart condition called
Cardiomegaly (enlarged heart) that went undiagnosed. This led to cardiac
arrhythmia, which took his life on June 28, 2011.
A Candlelight Bowl will take place on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 8:00p.m. at Fox Bowl, located at 1101 Butterfield Road in Wheaton, IL.
