  3. Vickie. I was shocked tonight when I learned of Nick’s passing. You and your family are in my thoughts. I have terrific memories of working with Nick over the past years and I am so sorry that the three of didn’t get together this fall. Take care of yourself…I will miss Nick!

  5. Yo Nick,
    You are so missed already. You are one of the very few men that I look up to. Many people didn’t have the privilege that I was so lucky to have, to get to know you and your wonderful wife Vicki on a personal level. You are a true gentleman and friend. You believed in people to do the right thing no matter what, as you did always. NCAA, NISOA, EP&D, and the whole soccer community lost a true ambassador for the sport of soccer. You will be so hard to replace as an assignor, but most of all as a friend, a mentor, and as a father figure that I so much looked up to. Rest in Peace.
