Nick was a good friend through grade school and high school.  We spent many days fishing all over N Jersey.  Some with Tommy Lee.

He was Best Man at my wedding in 1964.  After that I lost track of Nick although I knew he went into the Navy. He eveltually found his way to Superior, WI.  His obit is below.

Thanks for sending this, Jim. I was so disappointed to find it while looking for classmates during our preparation for our upcoming Reunion that you and I discussed a short while ago. I vividly remember the day Nickie met our first collie, Laddie!
