Of Saugus. Passed away suddenly at the age of 72 on August 24, 2023.  Born in Chelsea on November 24, 1950 to the late Nicholas E. Daley Sr. and Natalie (Veglia).  Beloved husband of Kristine (Anderson).  Devoted father of Nicholas E. Daley III and his wife Jessica of Lynnfield, and Danielle Desrochers and her husband Matthew of Lynnfield.  Adored grandfather of Jessica Massone, Noah, Jacob, Lucas, and Benjamin Desrochers, and Hannah and Maya Daley.  Dear brother of Frank Monzione of Gilbertville (formerly of Revere), Cathy Forgione and her husband Edward of Oakham, and the late Michael Monzione, and Ruth Lamphier.  Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

Nick was a self-made man who married his high school sweetheart.  Nick knew the importance and value of an honest day’s work. Early in his career, Nick was a pioneer in the modular home arena. Nick worked tirelessly owning and operating several popular restaurants which required hours of his time and attention. Nick and his wife, Kristine made an excellent team both at work and at home. They were incredibly successful and thrived in their many endeavors. In the 1980’s, he owned and operated Beachcream and Steak and Cheese at Revere Beach. From 1989 to 1996, he operated On Stage II in Salem, MA. This experience in the industry led to him moving to Nick’s Firehouse Coffee Shoppe which he, Kristine and his family ran with love until 2018 when it closed. Nick was beloved by all his loyal customers and made lifelong connections that exist to this day. Nick’s professional endeavors were truly intertwined with his family. Nicholas Daley III (son of the deceased) joined his father at the coffee shoppe where he learned so much from his dad. Nick knew very well the meaning of “hard work” and passed those values down to his children and everyone else that he influenced.

Nick always put his family first and through his incredible hard work and commitment Nick created countless opportunities for his family. Nick grew up in Revere, MA and later moved to Saugus, MA, his forever home. He was a well-respected neighbor for many years. Nick had a passion for travel, history, current events, and national politics. Recently Nick enjoyed long walks and traveling with his wife Kristine; sleepovers with his grandchildren; watching movies and taking his grandchildren fishing and adventure caching. Nick was a loving husband to his wife of 50 years, a father and a grandfather who had a big heart and an amazing sense of humor. He most enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren and will always hold a special place in our hearts. His gentle nature touched so many hearts in his lifetime and will continue to be an inspiration for years to come. Nick’s legacy will live on forever in his children and grandchildren who will never forget the life lessons he taught them and the memories they shared together.
