We are all very sorry for your family's loss. May your father rest in peace.
Our deepest sympathy,
Maria (Orlando Tracey), Patrick Tracey & Peter Orlando
My father, Nicola D Zeolla, passed away on the morning of Monday, 1/3/22. He was known as Nick to friends and Dominick to family. Though his health was failing, my father's passing took my brother and I by surprise.
My father is predeceased by his wife of over 50 years, Patricia, and survived by his oldest son John, his wife Sharon, granddaughter Robyn, her husband Anthony and their children Charlotte and Julianna, as well as his grandson Nicholas. He is also survived by myself (his youngest son Robert), my wife Jeannine and our daughter Alexandra, as well as his sisters Rosaria and Nicolina.
I remembered my father as a hard worker, holding two jobs as a tool & die maker for much of my life. When he wasn't at work, he was in the yard cleaning up or fixing something. His passion was his garden, where he spent much of his time. I like to think that his hard work ethic rubbed off on my brother & I. We both seem to spend more time at work then home.
In the last two years, since my mom has passed away, my brother John and I had an opportunity to see a side of my father that we rarely saw when we were younger. He shared a lot of stories of his youth from when he was in Italy and in NY. Many stories of his parents, cousins and the In-Laws. He was fond of all of them.
We are going to miss my father but I guess he missed the sound my mom yelling at him more.
We love you Dad. Say hello to everyone for us.
