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).

“Mr Nosbisch” or “Coach Nos” was a name said frequently by our daughter, Allison and our son Michael. We knew he was a talented teacher when our kids eyes lit up when speaking about him. He was truly a “teacher’s teacher”, who earned the respect and love of his students by talking to them at their level, by making learning fun, and showing his human side. We pray for his peaceful passage where he is well again and hope that his wife and family find comfort in their memories of him. He was called back as God clearly needed him. With love and light, The Ptasinski’s
