Always enjoyed going next door, if he wasn’t busy, and checking out his latest project car. RIP From: Cecil Adkins Apr 9 2020 8:38AM I only knew Nick through his shop, but I was always impressed by him, his family, and other staff there.

From: Kim Miller Apr 9 2020 12:37PM Dr. Morabito:
So sorry to see that your father passed away, I am sure he is rejoicing in heaven and he will be missed by all of his family. One of the promises we have for our grieving comes from the book of Matthew, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted". (Matthew 5: 4) In Matthew 5:12, it says: "Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven". My prayers are for comfort and peace for you and your family during the most difficult days ahead. Stay safe and stay well and I hope to see you soon.
