Nicholas Paul Baldwin


Nicholas Paul Baldwin was born October 23, 1993, and passed from this life July 17, 2019.

Nick was a son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle and friend. He was one of five siblings and leaves behind his mother Paula Baldwin Evens, father James Baldwin, sisters Brenda and Jettica, brothers James and Chris, nephew Silas, grandparents Lawrence and Brenda Berry and a host of loving uncles, aunts and cousins.  He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Richard and Margaret Baldwin, and stepfather Patrick Evens.  Nick attended Seminole High School where he excelled at soccer under the direction of Coach Rick Masi. He was actively pursuing his personal trainer certification and was employed at Makin Waves in Clearwater Beach, FL

Nick’s enthusiasm and love for life was apparent to anyone who came in contact with him. He loved God, his savior Jesus Christ, his family and all his friends and co-workers. He talked to any stranger who would listen and expressed his testimony of God, family and love. Nick was a unique individual and his outgoing, caring personality touched so many during his short life.

Nick’s was an adventuresome spirit whose curiosity knew no boundaries. Whether playing on the soccer field, ice skating, scaling the giant Christmas tree in Indian Rocks, he pushed the limits in everything he did. At the same time, he often found solace just sitting peacefully on the beach. There’s no end to the stories that bring laughter to all of our hearts. He lived his short life to the fullest.

We learned many things from Nick. He gave only the best advice. From getting through life to never giving up, even the seemingly smallest things truly mattered to him. He always had a smile on his face and his smile made other people smile. His laugh made other people laugh. Nick was a cheerful, playful, joyful, wise soul. He seemed to have all the right answers for many people. He was everybody’s best friend. Nick often said,  “There’s never a stupid question.”

Nick was amazing, and we’ll never forget the things he taught us. Our hearts will be with Nick forever. We look forward to seeing Nick and his beautiful, shining smile again. Nick, we celebrate your unique life and will love you forever.

  • Elizabeth Mallet says:

    I have fond memories of Nick, the way he smiled, laughed, teased his siblings. He was a blonde curly headed happy child and I loved taking care of him, along with his brother and sister. My deepest sympathy to Paula and her Family. RIP Nickolas

  • Rick Masi says:

    Paula, I’m so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine what all of you are going through. God works in mysterious ways. I know that you have faith you can be at peace knowing that Nick is in heaven. I was so pleased that he expressed his love for Jesus and is now at his side. God Bless!

  • Charlotte R Clouse says:

    I have said often that Nick was the boy that smiled from the inside out with hugs that lingered long after he left a room. Many lives were changed that fateful day on Clearwater Beach when Nick left this earthly life to soar toward his Heavenly home. A pastor once put Death in perspective in these words. When we lose a parent we lose a piece of the past. When losing a spouse we lose a piece of the present. When losing a child we lose our dreams of the future for that child.
    As this grieving family moves thru the days and into the tomorrows I trust they feel the loving arms of sweet Jesus wrapped tightly around them and are blessed to witness the effects of Nick’s sweet spirit left behind on others during his short time on earth. God Bless and Keep You.

    My dear Nick, this is so hard to accept. You were such a treasure to our family we all loved you so much. I can never thank you enough for bringing my daughter back to her relationship with the Lord. I will forever remember your curly hair, even though you cut it, your smile would melt me and how you always made sure to say Hi and bye as you came and went from our house. You are in the presence now of who you love the most, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you for being a part of our life the Sipos’s we are better people from knowing you. You take care of Emilie in heaven for me and I will take care of your mom down here for you. Until I see you again in heaven my sweet friend…. love Mama ( Kellie)
