Nick was a member of Sacred Heart St. Francis de Sales church. His hobbies and interests included selling and collecting stamps, traveling, reading and horse racing. He was a life-long fan of the Boston Red Sox.

The family would like to thank Nick’s son-in-law, Eddie Drew, for the countless hours of loving care that he extended to Nick during his lengthy illness.

Survivors include three children, Dolores (Dee)) Drew and her husband, Edward, and Bob DeCicco and his wife, Kathleen, all of Bennington, and Kathy DeCicco of Huntington, N.Y.; three grandchildren, Kimberly, Amy and Nicole; and nieces, nephews and cousins.
