Nicholas J. Huydic of Fairfield, son of Edward and Mary (Gerosa) Huydic, died Feb. 26. He was 31.

Edward Huydic retired in May 2014 after 34 years as girls varsity basketball coach at Staples High School in Westport, where he is also a guidance counselor.

Born in New Haven, Nick was a graduate of Fairfield High School, Class of 2002, and Sacred Heart University with a B.S. in business. 

He was a marketing executive with LDC Sleep Management Center. He worked previously at the Connecticut Humane Society in Westport where he rescued animals and often brought them home.

His favorite pet, though, was his bulldog, Sammy. He was a master gardener and was well-known for his talent in growing giant pumpkins, which won consecutive state championships.

His other passions in life included fly-fishing, bowling, hiking, and woodworking.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his two brothers, Edward and Phillip Huydic, both of Fairfield. 

Friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Tuesday, March 3 at 11 a.m. directly at St. Pius X Church in Fairfield.  Interment is private.  Friends may greet his family on Monday, March 2, 2015, from 4-8 p.m. at the Shaughnessey Banks Funeral Home, 50 Reef Road, Fairfield.

Donations may be made in his memory to the Connecticut Humane Society, 455 Post Road, East, Westport, CT 06880.
