I was saddened to read of Nick's passing.  Each time I attended a reunion, Nick would welcome my wife Grace and I, whether he was an officer in the association or not.  That always made me feel wanted and comfortable.  On a couple of occasions, he would invite Grace and I and several couples to have dinner with he and his wonderful wife Grace.  I am sure he did this with other members but he always made it feel like we were special.  He would tell me, "you know you and I say Grace everyday", and then that laugh of his.  What a special man God placed on this earth for 88 years, to make people feel at home.  RIP my friend. 
Grace, my prayers are with you special lady, as well as your family.

I agree...  Nick was a "gentleman" and a "special man".

Without a doubt Nick was an asset to our organization in ways that are hard to come by. His pleasant demeanor, his unique sense of humor, and his ability to always come up with the appropriate thing to say in difficult situations were the marks of a true gentleman and a special man indeed.

He will be missed.
