Nicholas "Big Nick" Cicero
The Guest Book is expired.
AGE: 67 • Raritan
Nicholas "Big Nick" Cicero, age 67, returned to GOD's loving arms on Saturday, March 1, 2014. He was born in New Brunswick and grew up in Somerville. After marriage, he moved to Raritan and resided there for 47 years. He worked in the elevator industry since he was 17 years old, retiring from Clifton Elevator in 2010.
Nick raised tropical fish his whole married life. He designed and patented his own fish tank in 2005, "The Trunk Tank." He was an avid football fan. Super Bowl was considered a holiday and he hosted many great Super Bowl parties. He loved the NY Giants. Just imagine the "party" when the Giants were in the Super Bowl!
He was a happy-go-lucky person, who always put a smile on the face of anyone he was around. As the saying goes, "if children and animals love you, you must be a good person." So that was Nick! All kids loved him! Mainly, because he was one of them; always a big kid at heart. He was everyone's favorite uncle! Animals were drawn to him. He didn't adopt neighbor's pets…they adopted him!
He was preceded in death by his beloved father, Francis (Frank) and his mother, Rosalie. He is survived by his wife and soul mate of 47 years, Gerry Filiano Cicero; his son, for which he was so proud, Nick Jr; his beloved "daughter"-in-law, Jennifer; his two cherished grandchildren, Kara and James, who were the light of his life; his brothers, Frank, Larry, Ronny, and Teddy; many aunts, nieces, nephews, and cousins; and scores of "love" nieces and nephews.
