"Everything we are today is because of him. We will miss him dearly but take comfort in knowing that he is with his sons Tony and John in Heaven." Nick was an incredible person and an All American athlete, having played football for the University of Notre Dame from 1953 until 1956. He went on to become a successful businessman, big game hunter, speedboat racer, and pilot. Nick knew how to live life, but if you asked him about his greatest accomplishment, he would tell you it was his family. Nick served on the Board of Social and Pastoral Ministry at the University of Notre Dame; was a Eucharistic Minister at St. Edward's Catholic Church; an inductee in the Marquette High School Athletic Hall of Fame; and an inductee in the Palm Beach County Wrestling Hall of Fame.
