Nicholas F. Catania
1925 - 2012
"Nick was a gentleman through and through and a very, very good politician. Nick was always for doing the right thing and had an instinct for being able to talk with people, quiet them down and for helping them come to a solution that was beneficial for everyone."
-- Thomas Judge Sr.
Former Delaware County Republican Party Chairman
"He was the type of man that if he gave you his word, you went to bed very comfortable."
Longtime Springfield Republican Party Leader
"He would always try to help people who were down on their luck. He would help them get a job or put in a recommendation, and then he would say, 'I've done what I can, but it's up to you to show up, work hard and be a good employee.'"
Delaware County District Attorney
"He really looked out for the everyday, common person and had a knack for caring for people and reaching out. He was woven into his community and cared deeply about the township of Ridley. One of his greatest achievements was leading the county effort to purchase a landfill in Berks County, an investment, he said, that has saved the county millions of dollars. Nick was very accessible to people in need and brought a savvy, commonsense approach to community issues - He will be greatly missed."
