Nick was a good friend for 71 years after we met as high school freshmen and played on the football team together. He was a tough halfback. We had a lot of good times together. After high school he went into the Air Force and I the Army, keeping touch all the while. We connected again after the service and remained friends as we married and had families all thru when he retired and moved to Florida, where we’d visit with him when we were down there. We’ll miss Nick. God Bless old friend. Rest In Peace and Comfort reunited with your parents who were always so good to us.
