Remembering all the wonderful Family celebrations with you Uncle Nickie, especially the Family Reunions, including your 25th and 50th Anniversaries to the Priesthood in Toronto and 60th Anniversary in NYC's Most Precious Blood Church. Since your retirement you continued to join us for special occasions, adding many Family photos and videos to our Book of Memories.
We will miss you Uncle Nickie... you will always be in our hearts!
Maryanne, Gord
& Family

My deepest sympathy, prayers, blessings and strength to all Father’s family, loved ones and friends. Mel, especially, God will strengthen you & Bless you for your loving heart & dedication to Father.
I recall the wonderful anniversary & birthday gatherings I attended for Father with friends he and I had in common. And visiting with him at Most Precious Blood, attending those wonderful sales & then he taking our friend, GinYee and I into his study looking for other items. I enjoyed the coziness of being with him, his warmth and the nice conversations we had.
May God bless you, dearest Father Fabian & hold you and those you love in His bosom, forever.

Most sincerely,
Betty Egeland

Uncle Nicky you will be so very missed by all the family but your memory will always brings smiles and laughter to all of us that knew you. You were always so full of life and squeezed every ounce you could to enjoy it to the end of your days. I often said we could only hope to live the life you had and the quality of how you lived it.
You were a huge part of the family by baptizing us ( with me having the honor of being your first baptism !), marrying us, as well as presiding over our funerals.
Though you have left us now to join your family in heaven you will live forever in our hearts.
Take that much deserved Rest In Peace Unk !
Love your nephew Anthony Dineno

We will miss all your great visits to Toronto and our visits to see you in NYC and to celebrate your 60th Anniversary to the Priesthood what a wonderful occasion that was. You are forever in our hearts and we are so lucky to have such wonderful memories of you. You will be truly missed by all of us. May you Rest in Peace Uncle Nickie.
Love Joey and Carol

I can’t remember a time when you weren’t the pastor of Most Precious Blood Church; to me, if feels like there was no one else before you. You were larger than life from the first day I met you until the very end. I knew you were special from the beginning although I couldn’t quite explain why. You proceeded to show me during your 23-year stay at MPB. I’ve missed your presence since the day you left in 2014, and I will miss you always. You are one in a million, and there will never be anyone who can hold a candle to you. May God bless you and keep you close to him forever. Thank you for everything. I will never forget you. With love, Emily
