Nick was a great guy who loved his family and was their rock. Always upbeat and generous, I couldn’t have asked for a better pair of in-laws for my daughter than Nick and Susan. The attached picture of Nick and Susan was taken this summer at Ali & Bart’s 10th Anniversary dinner. As you can see by his little fedora and two fists full of cocktails, Nick had a great time that perfect summer evening. This self-distanced get-together along with others in Bart and Ali’s backyard during this year of COVID, as well as all the times he and Cassie, the corgi, played rough, is how I’ll always remember Nick. RIP, Nick. You are greatly missed.

What a great guy. Always made the effort to visit Patti and I on the east end of L.I. Going to miss our pool games and lunch in Greenport. We just spoke in October about our next visit. Very sad day. My condolences to Nicks family.

Uncle Nicky was truly a remarkable man. I will always cherish the time we spent together at family functions – he was always smiling, fun to be around and genuinely interested in the events of my life, family, and career. Many great memories throughout the years. The memory that stands out the most took place on Canal Street, downtown Manhattan around 1991. It was me, my brother Danny and a few friends who decided to buy some “Rolex” watches and other designer items. One of our friends decided to follow someone into an alley to buy gold, and the rest of us eventually followed. Just went things started to turn, Uncle Nicky and his partner appeared. They were having lunch at a pizzeria during their break and noticed that some kids from New Jersey or the suburbs were about to get ripped off, or possibly worse. We were surprised to see him and said “Hi, Uncle Nicky”. The “salesperson” (whom I believe was wanted for some other things) was handcuffed and while we all walked back to the police station, repeatedly asked “Uncle Nicky, let me go.” Yes, he was calling him Uncle Nicky. This is one of my fondest memories of my uncle and I only wish that we had more time to spend with him. We are thankful and lucky to have had Uncle Nicky in our lives. Aunt Susan, Bart, Zach and family – you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,
Michael, Dawn, Sophia, Michael and Anna

Dear Susan and family, I worked with Nick in Dist. 3 when he and I were both sergeants back in the early 1980's! He was the most
pleasant guy to work with....always in an upbeat mood and willing to offer a helping hand when needed. I am deeply saddened to learn of his passing and offer to you and your family, my condolences and prayers. Ed Barry

Dear Susan:
I am deeply saddened by the loss of your beloved husband Nick.
You and your family have my sincere sympathy.

Nick was a special person in my life, and I was honored to have known him.

I first met Nick when he was transferred to District 3 in the early 1990's. Nick had such a magical personality and a wonderful sense of humor that I liked him immediately. Nick and I both retired in 1994 and later that year we were reunited at Barnard College where we both secured positions as security supervisors. On our days off, we loved to ride our bikes to different locations all over NYC and Westchester County. We also enjoyed shooting pool and having breakfast at our favorite diner, but Nick was at his best playing poker. Nick was an avid and great poker player. Every few months, I hosted poker games at my house. He never lost and loved taking everyone's money. Nick was a clown and in his own inimitable way got a kick out of kibitzing the losers.

Nick was always a gentleman and always willing to help.

I will miss Nick and the memories I have of him will stay with me forever.

May you rest in peace my good friend.

Ret. Sgt. Nick Raptis
