I’m so sad, I wish you were still here. I am going to miss you so very much! I will forever cherish all the memories we made and shared. We definitely had lots of fun times at the Diamondback games, restaurant outings, family gatherings and so much more. You always made me chuckle and brought a smile to my face. I am blessed to have you as my father. You are my superhero and were always there to help me whenever I needed it. Whether it was to fix something around the house of just listen when I needed an ear. I am very grateful for all you have done. So many people are feeling the same loss. You will always be in my heart. I love you Dad,. Barbra
My heart felt condolences to all of you. Nick was a wonderful person, he had such great compassion and respect for everyone around him. I’ll always remember some of our talks and will miss him greatly. God welcomes home his angel
I am so saddened to read about Nick’s passing. My family cherished Mr. Nick and Pat while they were our neighbors on 2nd avenue for many years. He was an amazing man. It was such a joy to speak with him daily. He was always sincerely kind, generous and considerate. My kids loved spending time with Mr. Nick and he would go out of his way to greet them and just chat after school. We have so many sweet memories of activities next door at the Troisi’s house, including Santa’s arrival. I still have a wheelbarrow that he brought to me because he saw me unloading heavy plants and thought it might make it easier for me. That’s the kind of wonderful man he was!
Our prayers and condolences to all of the family.
