Nick and I met at college in 2007. For anyone that knew Nick Digrosso they’ll tell you what a kind and giving soul he was. I could name one selfless act after another he would give for his friends or family, or frankly anyone. Nick was extremely intelligent. Nick could make sense of any scenario with a simple few words. Nick clicked on every level one may engage him in. There was little Nick would miss. He lived his life with a confidence and swagger top movie stars would rival. Nick was his own movie star. Top down with shades on driving was his office/stage. If he was here, he would tell me, “cheer up Michael c’mon man.” Nick only wanted happiness for everyone, even if he wasn’t happy-which was rare. Nick will always be a part of my life as the lasting impression he’s left on me and others, runs deep. I am proud of the legacy he’s left in his beautiful daughter and loving family. I will think about you often my friend. You are gone but never forgotten. Until we meet again... clean your room!

What a wonderful and considerate person. My cousin Nick was a warm loving person. Every Christmas Eve he and his unbelievable family would come over for my party. We would always have a fabulous time. Nick and myself and my other cousins would go on a carriage ride at my house Christmas Eve as a tradition. Nick would drive me on certain nights and was always respectful to me and kept me safe. Love you cousin, you will be missed so much.

I'm extremely saddened by the passing of Nick DiGrosso. Nick was a mainstay on our Bishop Eustace Track and Field team. He was a County Champion in the 800 and key member of the 2003 Group II Indoor State Relay Team Champions. Nick was a great teammate, leader, and friend...he was a joy to coach! My prayers go out to his very supportive parents, family, and friends. He will forever be a part of the history of the Bishop Eustace Track and Field program.

Who was Nicholas Joseph DiGrosso III? A true Italian who could have easily been in the Godfather. Nick, you left this world entirely too early. My memories of you always being the coolest guy I have got to meet still stand. Ever since I was 9 years old, I wanted to be just like you because of the confidence and alpha male attitude you had. I remember you coming to pick up Verggi in the convertible Black sports car you used to have when you two were still in high school. I remember not wanting to take off your Gucci dog tag necklace in college when you let me borrow it because I felt so much like you. I still remember Verggi telling me "Alfredo, he wants it back. you can't just keep it". On top of being an alpha, you were hilarious and knew how to make people laugh and smile. One thing I will never forget is the party you helped me throw when I was 18 years old, you helped me get 2 kegs and Verggi was so mad, but you didn't care because you saw how much I wanted to throw this party. We ended up both getting in trouble, but it was so worth it. I wish we still could have spoke towards the end, and I hate that I didn't get to say goodbye. You were my first brother in law Nick, and you have my word when I tell you that Gianna will never forget you when the time is right and she is old enough to know who her dad is and how much he loved her. I could tell by your cards to her how much you loved her, you were a great man. I was honored for you to make me her Godfather. Rest easy buddy

There are times in our lives when we feel we have been given more than we can ever bear. Loss can never be replaced, nor can the untimely death of our dearest loved one be understood. It is these times that we must rely on God to help ease our pain and give us strength to face tomorrow. We are heart broken over this loss and our deepest sympathy is with you, Nicky was taken from us way to soon but we know he will be with God for all eternity.
With comforting hugs and healing prayers
