Adrian "Nick" Osife, age 62, passed away peacefully on October 30, 2023, in Chandler. He was born on March 20, 1961, in Sacaton to his loving parents, Herman and Tillie Osife.
Adrian, affectionately known as Nick, had a deep love for his family, especially his grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. He wholeheartedly enjoyed spending time with them and took on the role of a mentor by teaching them how to play pool. He himself was quite the pool shark. Additionally, Nick had a passion for music and served as a DJ. His talent allowed him to share his love for music with others. Cooking was another one of Nick's joys in life.
Nature held a special place in Nick's heart as he found solace in camping trips and the thrill of fishing and hunting. If there was a game of volleyball happening nearby, you could bet that Nick would be right there to join in and have fun.
Nick is survived by his brothers and sisters: George Osife, Mary Osife, Bertha Thomas, Sylvester Osife Sr., Adriana Osife-Lewis, Ann Lucas, Harold Osife, Donald Osife, Francisco Osife, and Steven Isk. He also leaves behind many cherished grandchildren, nieces, and nephews who will forever hold his memory dear.
In addition to his passing, Nick was preceded in death by his parents; his beloved son Justin Ashcoft-Osife; as well as two brothers: Herman Osife Jr. and Albert Novealto.
