Life Story for Nicholina "Nick" Maurantonio

Nicholina Antonio Maurantonio , “Papa”, passed away April 17, 2018 after a brief but hard-fought battle with cancer. Nick was born and raised in Vaughn, Montana. He was one of seven children to Tom and Lena Maurantonio. After graduation, he joined the Army and then went to work for the Railroad for over 45 years, retiring in 1995. Nick married the love of his life, Barb, in July of 1966 after being apart for over 9 years. They shared a unique and beautiful love story. Family meant everything to him and there isn’t a bank teller or grocery clerk that hasn’t seen a picture of his granddaughters, Tia and Rosie. He was so proud of them.
Throughout the years, Nick enjoyed being a part of the Lions Club and Eagles Club. He and Barb enjoyed being on bowling teams and camping, and in recent years, they loved spending their winters in Arizona. He loved old cars, good food, fishing, and more than anything, he loved a good poker game. He was known for his stories and jokes, and if you ever heard whistling, that was probably him. He loved his family and his motto was, “Life is about loving and giving”. He was always thinking about the other person. He was a simple man with a kind, humble, gentle heart and a true love for people. To know him was to love him. He will be greatly missed by so many.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Tom and Lena; sisters Rose Dector, Katie Tabaracci, Grace Steffens, Stella Maurantonio; brother Joe Maurantonio. He leaves behind his wife Barb; Nicky, Mike, Tia and Rosie; brother Mike; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Memorial Mass will be held at 10am on Saturday, April 21st at St Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church, 2055 Woody Drive, Billings, MT with a luncheon afterwards at Smith West Chapel, 304 34th Street West. Donations may be made in his name to the Chloe Lai Scholarship Fund at Saint Francis Catholic School, 2202 Woody Drive, Billings, Mt 59102. Condolences may be shared online at www.smithfuneralchapels.com.
Papa, we will miss you forever but know that you will live on within us. Tia is making the oatmeal cookies and Rosie will always be your “bud forever”. Thank you for teaching us about loving and giving!
