  • My condolences. Nick was very much like an uncle to me – always the videographer!. May he rest in peace.

  • Nick and I first met around 1952 on Josephine Street in Dorchester. We have been lifelong friends and he and I shared with some of the best friends that anyone could ask for. He was English High and I was Boston Tech. Even though we were rivals, we were still best of friends and he even served as my Best Man in 1966. We worked together for awhile at a warehouse. I got the job thru him.

    He will always be remembered by me as a real true friend. And to cap it off with his favorite song
    THE LION WILL SLEEP WELL TONIGHT”.

    RIP my friend
