Funeral arrangements for the Westmoreland teen who died from an asthma attack are set.  Calling hours for Nick Beach are at Barry Funeral Home in Rome from 4-8 Wednesday night.  The funeral is at 11 Thursday morning.

Over the weekend Facebook feeds of Westmorland residents were a buzz of the passing of 19 year old Nick Beach. His autopsy shows he died after suffering an asthma attack.  Friends and family have put together a Facebook page titled “RIP Nick Beach” that has only been up since Saturday but already has over 1000 likes.

Nick was part of Westmoreland’s Class of 2011. He was enrolled at Herkimer County Community College under the Criminal Justice program.

To see someone so young pass away, your heart just aches. You feel for the family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the Town of Westmoreland. As Matt Brundage put it on Facebook: “Over 700 likes on this page. Just shows how many people were touched by Nick and the type of person he was. Rest in peace man.
