Nick will be missed dearly. We were good friends. He had always had something to say at the St. Joseph's meetings. We will send money to St. Marys for Masses. We will pray for him and the family.

I met Nick twice in the last few years.....once when he spoke at the Memorial Day tribute and paid honor to my uncle Jim Held who was killed in WWII.

He also helped and was a docent for the Hartford Historical Society's Tour of Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Hartford. We all enjoyed him and he added so much history and information about the soldier he talked about. It was such a beautiful fall day and I will always remember him and his kindness.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

What a wonderful man he was!! We rode the commuter bus from West Bend to Milwaukee VA for years! I worked there he went to volunteer.
He shared his vegetables with us for many summers. He will be surely missed by all that knew him. ❤️
