For over 60 years, Nick was a successful painter and business owner who never advertised and grew his business by doing the right things, the right way, for the right reasons. Nicholas loved his country and served for 6 years in the United States Marine Corps. In his youth, Nick boxed for the Police Athletic League in Brooklyn and won two Golden Gloves medals in Chicago in the early fifties. In his free time, he enjoyed working out, swimming, and good italian food with a cold glass of red wine. He lived life to the fullest and always put others first. He would graciously give to all constantly while saying "Go buy yourself a cigar" and never complained, ever. A mass is scheduled for Monday, August 1st at at 10:30 AM St. Monica's Parish in Jackson NJ. In lieu of flowers and mass cards, please make donations to St. Monica's where Nicholas was a parishioner and active member.
