Nicholas Raymond Feldman was born in Kankakee, IL on April 30, 1971 to Raymond and Elizabeth Susan (Blanchard) Feldman. At age seven he moved with his family to Mitchell where he attended schools, graduating in 1989. He attended Northern State College and then worked in customer service at CitiBank in Sioux Falls. In 2001 he was involved in an accident which forced him to retire. Nick’s passion was the sport of wrestling. His enthusiasm for the sport continued after high school by coaching, competing and mentoring. After his accident, Nick remained involved from the sidelines, but his enthusiasm never wavered.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Nathanial and Ivy Feldman, his maternal grandparents, George and Hettie Blanchard and an uncle, Ted Blanchard.
A memorial fund has been established in his name.
