I have fond memories of Mr. Nucci from my years at Van Rensselaer High School. He was a steady and reliable source of guidance, as well as an excellent teacher. Know that he is in my thoughts and prayers, as are his survivors.

Mr. Nucci knew I wasn’t much of a history student and that I had problems at home. He took me aside and said if I would do my best to make it to his second-period class, he would see to it I passed and graduated. He kept his word, even though I continued to say I wasn’t a history student.
How he would have laughed to learn I wound up in the DAR and developed a love of history. Somehow those lessons I begrudgingly sat through made it into my brain. Maybe it was because he so often made us laugh. He was an extraordinary teacher and person.

He was our principle, and there was a group of us girls that helped in the office. We were seniors, and at the end of the year he could have just walked away, but he and his wife invited us to his home for a picnic to say thank you! That's the kind of man he was! I will never forget you Mr Nucci. You were truly loved.
