To the family and friends of Nick Marino, Unfortunately, i just found out about his passing. I'm so very sorry to hear this news. My condolences and prayers are with his family and closest friends. I had the pleasure of working with Nick for 8 years. He was a very kind soul, full of life, happiness, and always a true gentleman. He Always spoke very highly of all his grandkids and children and showed us pictures from north Carolina trips and he had pure pride and joy in his eyes. He was like a father figure to all the girls in the office. He is someone we will never forget and are truly grateful that our paths have crossed in this lifetime. Our deepest condolences- Daniele, Krista & Kalynne

To the family and friends of Nicholas Marino, I am so sorry for your tremendous loss, and I send you my condolences, love, and prayers. I am proud to say that I got to meet Nick several times. He was the best of the best, the cream of the crop...and the best seafood chef on Christmas Eve! I knew just by our conversations, the kind of man he was. He was a man of faith, loved his family and friends, and had a very kind spirit. He was loved by many, and will always be missed. A father may pass on, but his thoughts, hopes, and dreams live on in us! God bless his soul for all of eternity.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
With all my love.

Dear Leonard, I only met your dad a few times but it was so evident as to where you got your personality and calm disposition. I wish I could have known him sooner as I'm sure we would have been great friends. My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time but I know your faith in the Lord will sustain all of you. May Jesus give you and yours His Peace, the Peace that passeth all understanding. - Love and blessings, Al & Ninia Pecora
