Nicholas P. Carusella of Pottsville, age 61, died recently of natural causes.  A Committal Service was performed on November 6 at Fort Indian Town Gap.  
Mr. Carusella is a 1977 graduate of Pottsville Area High School and attended Pennsylvania State University.  He enlisted in the Navy on September 18, 1978 and was Honorably Discharged in September 1984, having traveled the world as he served on various aircraft carriers, including the Nimitz as part of the “Black Aces” of Fighting FORTY-ONE (VF-41).  He was awarded several commendations and an award throughout his six-year tenure.  
Nick, as he is known, was a thoughtful man of keen intellect.  He was kind and generous…an old soul who knew the Bible inside and out.  
The son of Patrick N. and Isabel A. Carusella (both deceased), Nick leaves behind two loving children, Nicholas (Cressona) and Rachel Carusella (Ryan Frasnelli, Schuylkill Haven) and two adorable twin granddaughters, Vanessa and Victoria.  He also departed eight loving sisters, most of whom remain in the general area:  Dr. Rita Mattus (Thomas, Long Island); Ann Marie Poslosky (John, Schuylkill Haven); Patricia Madera (Shawn, Pottsville); Rosemary Matz (Schuylkill Haven); Bernadette Guzick (Lake Wynonah); Joanne Spinelli (Anthony, Manheim); Dorothy Doman (Mark, Quakertown); and Maria Swiezak (Tim, Orwigsburg).  In addition, he had many loving nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews.
