Jonathan Nyce Obituary, Death – Jonathan James Nyce, a beloved father, husband, son, brother, uncle, friend, and teacher, died abruptly on June 11, 2021, at the age of 37. Jonathan was born in Hartford, Connecticut. Before relocating to Minnesota, he attended Renbrook School and Suffield Academy before earning his high school diploma from Orono High School. He returned to Connecticut to attend Quinnipiac University where he obtained his undergraduate and masters degrees, which prepared him for his career in education. Jonathan was passionate to teaching young children, and he spent his career teaching for Hamden Public Schools. He did it with never-ending compassion and enthusiasm because he was enthusiastic about how important it is to form a personal connection with each pupil.
Like no other, he had the ability to inspire and motivate kids. He genuinely loved everyone. Jonathan was first and foremost a family man. Jonathan leaves behind his wife Tamara, with whom he had a very romantic love affair that began when they were only kids. His amazing kids, Blakely Ann and Avery Brooke, who were his true pride and delight, are also left behind. He was a lovely parent who loved nothing more than being their father. In addition, Jonathan is survived by his parents, James and Beverly Nyce, his sister, Becky Silva, and a large number of other loved ones, friends, coworkers, and students. Without a doubt, Jonathan had a kind heart and a compassionate disposition. His charisma and humour would enliven the atmosphere. He will be exceedingly difficult to replace.
On June 19, 2021, at 11:00 a.m., a service will be held at the Alderson-Ford Funeral Home of Cheshire, 615 South Main Street, to celebrate Jonathan’s life. A period of visitation will follow the service. Family has always been the centre of Dad’s life, and he has always been a family man. He enjoyed going fishing and trapping and grew up near the Perkiomen and Skippack creeks. He owned an Indian motorcycle when he was a teenager. Later, he got into auto repair and discovered how to completely rebuild an engine. He admitted to having a car whose engine had occasionally caught fire. How could he know when the engine was on fire, I pondered.
In May 1943, Dad joined the Navy, attended machinist training in Dearborn, Michigan, and served in the Pacific theatre of World War 2. He operated a crash boat at the Naval Air Facility on the island of Kanton to save people from sinking ships and crashed aircraft. He added that sometimes he manned a tower overnight on a tiny reef near the harbor to look for hostile submarines. What should he do if he ever sees an enemy submarine, I enquired. According to him, he intended to shoot it with his bolt-action Springfield rifle, and perhaps someone on the island would hear it. He served at John Rogers Naval Air Station in Pearl after Kanton.
