I worked with Nick in the NJ ANG. He was such a kind soul. He was an outstanding avionics tech. Nick taught me so much. We had many laughs together. I just learned of his passing today as I was looking to reconnect. After all of these years, I still believe Nick was one of the best people I have ever met. May he rest in peace.

I too worked with Nick in the 108th Avionics section from 1987 till he retired. A salute to a gifted aircraft mechanic, friend, mentor, and a dedicated military servant to our great country. We had many fun hard-working days on the flightline, leading to a great sense of accomplishment - something I cherish with many of those from that era. Thank you for all you did for us. May you rest in peace my friend and may God look over your family in their time of need. God Bless.

I worked in the 108th with Nick from 1983-1986. I had recently come off of active duty. Nick was such a fine mentor I realized i actually loved my job. He had a way of speaking without being loud, and a calmness that encouraged that the job be done without undue pressure. I am saddened to learn of his passing and would like to express my condolences to his family and friends.

I worked with Nick the entire time he worked in the 108th. He was an outstanding Instrument and auto pilot technician, trainer and good friend. he was always there when needed. We had many good times together and I will miss him. My only regret is I never got to see him after he retired. Rest in peace my friend. Dan Lingle

Nick was a kind, caring, thoughtful man and also had a great sense of humor. I served with him in the NJANG from 92-00. He took me under his wing and showed me the ins and outs of being an Avionics Guidance and Control Specialist. He was a great teacher and I learned a lot from him, but most of all, I remember laughing with him and just enjoying being around him. Rest In Peace, Foo-Foo.
