To the Capitano family, my deepest sympathies. I learned only today of Nelson's death, and am shocked -- saddened -- at this untimely loss. Michael and Kristin, I've met you once or twice in your father's company. When we lunched occasionally, he spoke of you lovingly and proudly. Nick and others, I'm afraid we only met at Mom's visitation.
I served with your father in the ISP, where he struck a proud pose as a Trooper -- our most important rank. His wonderful New York accent was a fun irony when he was in uniform. Later, your father sold me my first-ever cell phone, and many thereafter to my family and me. He was a wonderful salesman -- friendly, fair, and warm. He loved Muff so... Thank you for sharing him with us. I am a better person for having known him.
Nelson you were a wonderful friend and devoted ISP Officer. I will never forget your humor and up-beat personality.
I will miss you old friend!
Victor Morris, ISP M/Sgt. Ret.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I'm so sorry to hear about Nelson. My family will miss him dearly. For years he has been the only person we see when it comes to our cell phones. My family would go into the store and all want to upgrade (4 of us), and he would say "Hi guys" and have a big smile. He really took his time for all of us. He was one great man. Our prayers are with your family. God Bless.
So sorry to hear of the passing of Nelson. I worked with him at General Communications and he was a joy to be around. He could sell anything.... May you have comfort in the wonderful memories of your family.
