Nick Thiemann died last week, at 76.
Except for an obituary on WestportNow, there was no public notice of his death.
That’s surprising. Nick served Westport for many years, in many capacities. He even ran for 1st selectman in 1993. For 4 years, he was on the Board of Selectmen.
He was also an outspoken member of the Board of Finance, was elected to the RTM, and appointed to the Flood and Erosion Control Board. An avid Democrat, he was a polling place monitor for many years.
Nick was also a member of the state Commission on Human Rights and Disabilities, and a court magistrate.
Nick lived in Westport for almost 50 years, after time in Nigeria with the Peace Corps. A lawyer, he practiced here until his death.
He enjoyed golf and singing. He performed for 25 years with Fairfield County Chorale and the Mendelssohn Choir of Connecticut.
He is survived by his wife Helen, son Clark, daughter-in-law Jennifer and granddaughter Molly.
Calling hours are this Thursday (November 10, 5 to 7 p.m., Harding Funeral Home, Westport). A celebration of his life is set for Saturday, November 12, 11 a.m. at Assumption Church.
