Obituary of Andrew Niziol

Andrew Sean Niziol, born April 27, 1996, died suddenly doing what he loved on May 7, 2024 in Lake Tahoe, California. He was the beloved son of Christi (Brian) Stevens and Drew (Mallory) Niziol. Grandson to Margorie Oehmler, Mary Sherman and Andy Niziol. He was predeceased by his grandfathers, Jim Delahunt, and Tim Oehmler.

Andrew is survived by his dear brother Ethyn (Savannah Pencille) Niziol and his step brothers Brennan and Ethan Stevens. He is also survived by many proud aunts and uncles; Heather (Christian) DeFazio, Aaron (Charla) Niziol, Timothy (Stacey) Delahunt, Elizabeth (Sean) Baker, Kelley Devine, Jeff Doyle, and Kimmy Stevens. Also survived by his faithful companion, Kita, and many loving cousins, family members, and friends across the country.

Andrew was born at Sister’s Hospital in Buffalo, NY. His family anxiously awaited his arrival as the first grandson and nephew. A native of Lockport, NY, Andrew attended Washington Hunt Elementary School, Emmet Belknap and Lockport High School.

Andrew was an avid golfer, snowboarder and adventurer. He would do anything for a good laugh shared with family and friends. That led to a career that was a perfect fit in the service industry. His career, hobbies, and interests took him out west to Lake Tahoe and Phoenix.

Calling hours will be held at the Taylor Reynolds Funeral Home, 70 Niagara Street, Lockport N.Y. on Wednesday, May 22nd from 4-8.  In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations are made to the Inyo County Search and Rescue. This courageous and selfless group of volunteers were the ones to bring our beautiful boy home.

      Andrew..What can I say that hasn’t already been said but I’ll relate my story. I met Andrew shortly after he moved to AZ. He tended bar at the RV resort where I lived. Yes, I’m old but I will never forget meeting him for the 1st time. I looked at him & said WTHeck did u come from & when he said “Buffalo” I understood. He gave me lip every time I came in & he called me “Gramps” & we became friends. I was fortunate enough to be invited to his parties (hey mom, not that many) & played golf with him MANY times. I was lucky enough to meet his mom (Christie). Meeting Andrew & hanging out with a young man like him changed me in ways I can’t explain. What a LOSS! I think about him every day. He was a TREASURE. I ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ U man & I will always miss u!
