Dear Nigro Family,
I was shocked to hear the news about Nick. I had been working with him on a potential graduate student project and had gotten together with him in September I think. Our project had great potential.
I had worked with him several years back on a different student project. I found that he always had a helpful outlook, and a wonderfully open mind. I am going to miss him terribly. You were blessed to have him in your family.
Mike, Lori, Gigi, Amy, Nicky and Danny; We were so sorry to hear today of your lose of your Father. Our thoughts, prayers and love goout to all of you. Warmest Regards, Patti, Paula, Kathy and Kris Tarantino
Our family has wonderful memories of your dad and his kind and gentle manner. Many St. B's basketball teams of year's past, including our son's, were blessed by the time he shared with them. I will forever remember the last time we spoke and the usual warm hug he wrapped his kind words in.

it was a pleasure to know Dr. Nigro [Nick].
I saw him almost weekly when he came to play noon hoops at MU's Helfaer Rec Center. He was a 'regular' for many years and the envy off many of us to still be playing ball with guys, some 1/2 his age. I think he was an original member of the Rec Center [since 1975]. He still had that nice little set shot from 15 - 20 feet. He was the godfather of noon hoops. I enjoyed our talks about MU hoops - he was a real fan and student of the game.
I am sure he will still be 'hooping' in heaven.

A great man I looked up to fondly together again fulfilled is an understatement describing his life his flame will never be extinguished living on in you Nigro family! God love help you thru. Your in our thoughts.
We all love you Nick from Marquette University community. The guys from the gym will miss you.
To the Nigro Family, we knew both Nick and Joanne as we too were part of the MU family and the MU Women's Club family. We have wonderful memories of both your mom and dad. They are now together again and this time in heaven. They were two of the most humble, loving and caring people we have ever met. As you celebrate Nick's life in Milwaukee, we will say prayers for him (and your mom)here in Annapolis. I can just hear Nick saying, "I'm Ok everyone, I with my Joannie now." As difficult as it is for us still here on earth to not have them with us, they are with God now, happy and together forever.
We miss you Nick and Joanne.
God bless you all.
Mr. Nigro brought me the Body of Christ when I couldn't make it to church. Such a humble man and a great inspiration. My sincere sympathies to his family and friends.
Nick, there are few things more difficult in life than loosing a loved one so close as a parent. Those of us who have had the experience can truly sympathize with you at this time while assuring you the greatness of your father will only grow in your future as your sorrows turn to memories of joy. We are here to prop you up when needed.
My thoughts are with you both at this difficult time. Hopefully you will find peace (and smiles) in the memories of your Dad. Bill Miner
Mike and Family
We send our condolences for the loss of your father. He was quite a person.
Mike & Joann,
Great family website! While you continue in the thoughts and prayers of your Twin Eagles family, I know that the services will be a celebration of a great life and great father. We expect more "Nick stories". Your golf group will be remembering you and your dad to St. Bernadette Liturgical and Social Ministry Programs.
Nick inspired everyone he knew to be more giving and compassionate towards others. He was a special friend whose faith in God and love of family and life will be a part of my life always.
Deepest sympathies, Nigro family.
Nigro Family. Please take comfort in your family and children as you celebrate the life of your father. Recognize the legacy that he has left behind in each of you.
It was a privilege and a pleasure to have known him.
Nick has been a blessing from God for me. Both Joanne and he were. Nick, as you know, took me to school with him, dropping me at MATC when I had classes. We also during his retirement, went out for coffee and a snack from time to time. He was always encouraging me to do well in my studies. In his last weeks with us I was able to tell him about my recent accomplishments at MATC, the fact that I made the President's List with a 4.0 gpa. He was so proud of me. We were going to go out to celebrate that achievement. Now we can celebrate when we see each other in heaven when God calls all His children together.
Both Nick & Joanne loved gardening. As we remember Nick we will always remember how he loved to care for his grapes and make wine from them.
Both Nick & Joanne treated me as their "adopted" son. I remember years when I came over for 4th of July & Christmas celebrations with the family. Spending time with the Nigro family was such a highlight to my life.
Nick will truly be missed here, even though I know we will be together later.
May God bless you, my fellow "family" during this grieving process. Remember all the great times we had with our father.
Christopher (and Mary Neuendorf)
Dear Family, I'm not sure how long Nick had been coming to Trinity Village to serve communion, but for the 2 plus years I have been here he has been such a blessing. Residents remark on his kindness and gentle spirit as he not only shares communion and prayers, but compassion and concern...God's love with each resident. Thank you for sharing him with us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Pastoral Care Department, Chaplain Bernice
Dear Nigro Family,
Your Dad was the best person that we have ever known. We will miss him dearly. He set a great example for all of you to live by. You are in our thoughts and prayers. There is no doubt that he is in heaven with your Mother.
