He spent most of his life in Stow raising his children and operating his business Nick’s Provision Co. Inc, for 46 years. Away from work he enjoyed golf and downhill skiing during his younger years and then fishing the Cape Cod Canal or finding the best fishing spots off the coast with his friend Roger Gay. He also ran Andy’s Bait and Tackle in Acton with his sons. Nicholas will be remembered most for his dedication to his family, for always being there for anyone who needed him. All are welcome to gather with Nicholas’s family Wednesday December 11th from 10am-12pm at Roney Funeral Home 152 Worcester St. N.

Nick was one of my closest friends from our youth, till today! We were part of a threesome, which included Eddie Pechie, who passed a few years ago. Nick was the sane one! He was able to stay out of trouble. There was one time where I wanted to see a girlfriend in Warwick Rhode Island. Nick drove my car while Ed and I drank beer in the back seat. We got lost, so I said, I'll drive. Lol. I drove into a stone wall and blew out two front tires. Police came and said what happened. Nick said a big animal was crossing in front of him, and I hit the stone wall in avoiding hitting the animal. If it wasn't for Nick taking responsibility. I would have lost my license for a long time. Never mind the AA meetings I would have had to attend. That was the kind of friend Nick was! Special dude! Gonna miss him big time! RIP!
