Friends remember Clark
July 04, 2018


CORNING - Trooper Nicholas F. Clark, who was shot and killed in the line of duty Monday morning while responding to a domestic incident on Welch Road, was the kind of person that would do anything to help anyone, according to friends.

"He's a guy that would take the shirt off his back, money out of his wallet, really do anything for (people)," said Canisteo Village Patrolman Mark Ahearn, who grew up in Canisteo like Clark. "He's the son that a mother, a father and a brother can be very proud of."

Kyle Amidon, Canisteo Village Chief of Police, said his and Nick's friendship goes way back.

"Basically we were raised together," Amidon said. "Youth wrestling, youth football, little league, all the sports all the the way up through. We both graduated from Canisteo-Greenwood High School together. We both wrestled after high school. He went to North Carolina at Greensboro for wrestling, I went to Alfred State for wrestling. But even then, we were still in contact daily."

Amidon said people could always count on Clark.
