Nickolas Steven Nosbisch, 29, of Fuquay Varina, NC passed away peacefully surrounded by his family, Friday, June 8, 2018. Nick was a devoted husband, and compassionate son, brother, teacher, coach, and friend. He was well known for his relentless sense of humor, passion for teaching, and love for the sport of wrestling.
Nick was born June 9, 1988, in Fayetteville, NC, at Fort Bragg, the first son of Denise and Steve Nosbisch. He grew up in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Nick attended East Carolina University where he met his wife, Melissa, and earned a degree in history education. He was a history teacher at Holly Springs High School, as well as the head coach of the wrestling team and tennis team. Nick coached multiple state placers and one state champion and earned a statewide reputation as an outstanding coach and mentor.
Friends and family of Nick will remember his commitment to living a full life. His collection of experiences and funny stories rivaled his collection of action figures and comic books (of which there were plenty). He and his wife Melissa were avid travelers and made an annual trip to the NCAA Wrestling Championships. He loved spending time with his two dogs, Marcey and Mickey.
When you spoke with Nick, you felt like you had finally found someone who understood exactly what you were trying to say. A fiercely loyal friend, he made sacrifice after sacrifice without fail for those he loved. Knowing Nick meant never feeling alone.
He is survived by his wife, Melissa; his mother and father, Denise and Steve; his brothers, Jack and Max; and his grandparents, Don and Donna Huff and Betty Nosbisch.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at Hope Community Church in Apex (2080 East Williams Street).

He was my Coach, Friend, and example. There have been few men in my life in which I can say have shaped me to be better than I am and would not be the same if He was there for me. I am grateful for the chance I had to sit at the feet of a true light in a dark world. You will be missed but here is my conselation at the this time "Hero's get remembered but Legends never die." I will carry his legend for the rest of my life and will try to pass it on.

What a great legacy Coach Noz leaves behind. A true inspiration for the lives that he impacted every day. He was such a light in the high school and wrestling community. We will greatly miss him. Our prayers are with his family now. May you be at peace that he is in the presence of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

So sorry for your loss. The Bible book of Job 14:14,15 ask the question, “If a man dies, can he live again? You will call, and I will answer you.” And Jesus promises at John 5:28,29 that there will be a resurrection! We pray for comfort for this family.
