Nicholas Aguero, 80, passed away peacefully in his sleep on December 26, 2020, at Sharmar Village Nursing Home in Pueblo, Colorado. Nicholas was born on March 27, 1940, in Pueblo, Colorado. He was adopted by his grandparents, Conception and Simon Aguero. Nicholas’s life started in Smelter Hill-Pueblo, Colorado. It was here that he learned to grow and learn his way of life at a young age. When he was a toddler being fed on the highchair, he would fall asleep only once his belly was full. While growing up, Nicholas learned the ways of life by gathering coal and chopping up wood to help keep the house warm and fuel the stove to keep food in his family’s belly. As Nicholas grew up, he and his brothers would go with their father Simon around Colorado and Wyoming to pick vegetables ranging from potatoes to onions. Once they were done picking the vegetables, they would return back to their residence and invite the field workers to come and enjoy time with family. Nicholas’s mother Conception and the wives would cook up the vegetables and make dinner, while Nicholas’s father Simon and the workers would play music. It was a wonderful time. Good music, good food, and good company. Once Nicholas hit his teen years, he grew to love any work that involved his hands. While hanging out with his friends, he acquired an old radio and turned it into a record player, so they could listen to music in the car. He loved to listen to Rock and Roll from the 50’s. As he progressed into a young man, he loved to work on old cars. One of the cars he bought and worked on was a 1962 Chevy Steamline. As time went on and Nicholas hit his younger adulthood, he moved to California with his family and had a 1969 Pontiac Catalina. He enjoyed cruising in his Catalina even if it meant going to Disney Land. He was going to go wherever the road took him and his family, even if it was to the ocean. He loved the ocean, but the funny thing is, he never learned how to swim. When Nicholas and his family moved back to Colorado, he was employed at MidWest Steel as an overhead crane operator. He was a hardworking man that provided for his family. To Nicholas, his family was the most important aspect of his life. Another aspect that he loved was music. Nicholas enjoyed all types of music as he learned to play the guitar, harmonica, maracas, and accordion. As Nicholas grew older, he still had that hard-working mentality instilled in him. While at Sharmar Village Nursing Home, Nicholas took pride in his job by sweeping the patio area. He also enjoyed teasing and dressing up for the nursing staff by wearing his Stacy Adams shoes and fedora to brighten up their day. In his final moments, he cherished the time he spent with his children and grandchildren. A special moment that he really enjoyed was going on rides around Pueblo and getting Frappuccino’s with his daughter, Diana. Even though Nicholas never lived the richest life, he always made life rich for others around him. He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Annie Phyllis Aguero. Nicholas is survived by his living brothers: Tony (Maxine) Aguero and Alfred Aguero Sr. His children: Anthony (Rose) Aguero, Esther (Ken) Lawson, Nick Aguero, Diana (Porfirio) Ogaz, and Kenny Aguero. His grandchildren: Salina Archuleta, Jolina Cordova, Valerie Archuleta, Crystal Aguero, TJ Archuleta, Adrian Aguero, Porfirio (Bud) Ogaz, and Sorcha Ogaz. He is also survived by numerous of great-grandchildren and many other relatives and friends who will miss him dearly. Special thanks to Sharmar Nursing Home and all of the staff who took great care of Nicholas.
