Nicholas “Nick” Dominick Napolitano, 86, passed quietly in the late evening hours of June 4th, 2016, with family members by his side in Phoenix, AZ. Nick fought many cancers and diseases using every ounce of his energy to remain in this world with the love of his life and bride of 66 years, Angie.
Born and raised in Queens, New York, as a teenager, Nick spent summers working with his father at a resort in Upstate New York where he met his future bride. Nick and Angie enjoyed a beautiful marriage that produced two daughters, Mary and Anne. Nick spent many years working for Con Edison in New York to provide for the family being raised in Queens, New York.
Wanting a better life, Nick and his family moved to Phoenix, AZ. Nick spent most of his working years in Arizona employed by Motorola Inc. and the Scottsdale School District. He was proud of the fact he moved here the same year the Phoenix Suns basketball team was created and has been a big fan ever since. When the Arizona Diamondbacks started in 1998, he was pleased to change his baseball loyalties from the New York Mets to his new Arizona home team.
Nick is survived by his wife Angie, daughters, Mary and Anne, grandchildren, Randal, Anthony, Debra and Michael and great-grandchildren, Robert, Shea, Nicholas, Christopher and Austin.
