i meet nick way back about 1956-7 and we both had just moved to san leandro.  around that time another guy named don phelps moved here also.  we all played baseball.   since the baseball teams at woodrow wilson were mostly made up already for teams we were left out.  don wound up getting the recreation directir at thrasher park to have another team added so we could play ball on the condition he could find enough players.  well he succeded with myself and nick joining up.  i remember it was great fun for us being on a team for first time as we were always the underdogs in games, we finally jelled somewhat and started to win a few games.  i carry these  thoughts with me forever.  after many years and after me getting a transplant (kidney)  i couldnt do much at first so i would look up people i went to school with and i happened to find nick and talked with for a long time and discovered he also had kidney failure and it became our topic amd i told him what i went thru just to get health enough just to be considered for one.  he was able to get a transplant and ialways hoped what i  told hin helped him get one.   this is for his wife i thank you for taking care of him thru the transplant process and after, you are truly a very special person, god bless you

Several years ago I contacted Nick to inquire if he would be interested in attending the Old Farts Luncheon that some 20 class mates of the first graduating classes have been attending since about 2006. He advised that he lived in Las Vegas and seldom came back to the SFO Bay area. However he requested that I include him in the email invitations so that if his personal travel plans over lapped our schedule he could attend. After that phone call Nick and I corresponded via email on a regular basis. The last email I sent to Nick was answered by his wife advising that he had passed away on December 19,2015. She advised that he had suffered a heart attack some time prior and never regained consciousness. Judgeing from our email communications he had retained his sense of humor and love of our country. Rest in peace Nick we will all follow soon.
