I was super fortunate to have three great Uncles but Uncle Nick was a clear favorite. He was always warm, interested and free with advice and opinions.

He always asked how we were all doing, posing questions and using humor to make a few points. He always remembered details about me and my three siblings and took time to chat whenever we got together.

He was generous and friendly, quick to share a story and it wasn't until much later in life did I come to learn he was good on a BBQ grill...I will always remember how he patiently and carefully tended over the grilled wings he made at my cousin Theresa's and Franks home a few years back. They were wonderful. Thanks for inviting us....I am glad I got to see both Uncle Nick and Aunt Nancy a number of time during the last several years.

God bless both Uncle Nick and Aunt Nancy and condolences to Donnie, Theresa, Frank and Antonio.

For me the most loving memory I will always have of my uncle Nick, ironically, was that of my aunt Nancy’s final mass. I waited at the church for everyone to arrive. I was early. I was all by myself and I took the time and really thought about how much I love her and her beautiful family. I felt so sad. Shortly the cars arrived and as I anticipated that morning my uncle got out of his car and walked straight to me and hugged me and somehow his hug made everything calm once again. How is that? This will always be my memory. . Thank you uncle Nick for a lifetime of love and thank you for all your love and support to my family you made many beautiful memories for all of us. Godspeed my uncle. Be peaceful and be with the love of your life forever.With great affection to your family who will always hold a very close place in our hearts. Thank you again for that hug that will stay with me always. God bless you my uncle.

The Big I was special to me: the first working class New Yorker I'd ever met, a real cultural study for a teenager from rural South Jersey. He welcomed me into the Iosca home, and he and Nancy fed me better than I'd been fed in my life. I thought the Big I was a roar, and I hope my perspective helped Sis T and Dommy see their Dad through someone else's eyes.

I don't know about yesterday or the future, but I think today, Aunt Nancy and Uncle Nick are sitting together on a cloud in heaven. They are probably catching each other up on the past year and eating a big plate of Aunt Nancy's famous eggplant parmigiana. They'd be giggling and smiling at each other just like I always remembered. Let the love continue!

There are a few things that stayed with me through the years.
I remember the smiles on Aunt Nancy and Uncle Nicks faces
as they told everyone of their honeymoon in Florida. Of Uncle
Nicks brand new Pontiac, and riding to the lake in it!
He had a an easy manner and a smile to set you at ease. He
loved his card games and his bocce . A good family man.
Wishing you peace and comfort Uncle Nick, Ciao.

I would like to express my sincere condolences.

My favorite memories of Uncle Nick are of him sharing stories about his family and friends. His stories demonstrated how happy he was in life.

He was always laughing and greeted us with smiles. He was generous and thoughtful, I absolutely appreciated when he picked up my favorite pastry when we visited. !!

I’m thankful for the times we shared ; he will be missed. May he rest in peace united with Aunt Nancy forever together.

Whenever I think about Uncle Nick, I think about going to Hudson County Park as a kid and spotting him playing bocce ball with his friends. Sometimes I would just say hi, not interrupting them in their element. Other times, I would stop to chat for a bit and toss a few balls. It was a simple thing but it made me feel kinda cool. And to echo my brother, I also remember his incredible accent. My favorite was how he would pronounce “Chicago”, not with the “Shh” sound, but as “Chick-ah-go”! Rest In Peace Uncle Nick. Love, Jason
