Domenic “Nick” Joseph Amore, 68, recently passed away after a courageous battle with COVID-19. Domenic was born in Washington, D.C., to the late Alphonso Amore and the late Helen Rice. Growing up, sports were his passion, he could always be found on the baseball field or basketball court. The son of an Airforce Senior Master Sergeant he experienced living in different places, his fondest being Sevilla, Spain where he spent most of his high school years. From an early age, he was always a hard worker and knew he wanted to be his own boss. At the age of six, his entrepreneurial spirit was already flourishing, when he started collecting bottles to return for a few cents and selling hand crafted potholders.
His love of business and paving his own path forward continued to grow as the years went on. In 1974 he bet all-in on himself, founding his own business along with his brothers, Action Carpet & Tile which operated from 1974 to 2001. Thereafter, he founded Pride Flooring & Home Décor where he shared a thriving business with his sons. His children will continue in the family business where they will honor his legacy each day.
Family always came first for Nick. He spent his adult life in Miami, Florida, raising his children, Marc Adam (Liz), Brett Justin (Crystal), Daniel Travis (Arianna), and Lauren Nicole with his wife of 41 years, Pamela Shane. He was always proud of the family he created and loved watching his Children grow into the people they are today. He loved telling stories about his children to all who knew him. Making people laugh was one of his favorite things to do, he was a great storyteller and loved to tell jokes.
He is also survived by his three siblings and their spouses, Gary and Judi Amore, Adele and Marty Wheeler, and Mike and Dawn Amore. Nick, as he was better known as, liked to simply be near the water, loved being a coach to his kids in all their sports activities, enjoyed playing poker, driving down to the keys, and spending time with his growing family – granddaughters Abigail Rose, Mia Italia and grandson Thomas James. To all who had the pleasure of knowing him, he was a great man with a kind soul who had a million-dollar smile and a laugh that was contagious. He was truly a family man who will be deeply missed by all.
