    Our families were close for as long as I can remember. The memories are still with us and will remain. It was great to catch up last year at your place with Jim Leonards and your uncle Arthur. Tributes to a true and caring gentleman. RIP Nick.

    Fond memories of Koko regaling anyone and everyone with numerous stories on diverse topics while working behind the bar at the Carlton Cricket Club. Passionate about the Blues in both football and cricket and ever ready to have vigorous discussions with anyone willing to become engaged.
    RIP Koko.

    My memories of Nick go back a long, long way. Nick inadvertently lead me home on my first day at Primary School. Our contact fluctuated over the years but Nick was always there somewhere and will be deeply missed.

    The long lunches in the old days, conversations, and much, much, more. Including
    your irrational attitude to Collingwood victories over the Blues.
    In all a good laugh and fun.

    Twenty plus years on the Committee of Carlton Cricket Club! Usually found behind the bar and the first person most visitors met. Always welcoming, always had a story or two and even shared a beer or two. Lots of fond memories Koko – you will be sadly missed but never forgotten! A glass or two will be raised in your honour. RIP mate.

    A man of many words, especially when recalling his early adventures at Carlton over the odd glass of ale. May he rest in peace.

    Nicko you are going to be terribly missed by so many, including yours truly.
    You were not just someone who made me feel a part of your family but also that ‘other’ family the Carlton Football & Cricket Clubs.

    Your friendship will not be forgotten and our many conversations over the years are endearing memories of the vastness of your life’s experiences.

    With your beloved Marcia forever.

    Wendy and I wish to offer our sincere condolences to Kathy, Leah, Georgia, Anthea, Rob and all the “children” for your beloved brother, uncle, Dad and grandfather.

    Positive. Funny. Kind. Warm-hearted. The list could go on. An incredible human being that we had both the pleasure and privilege to know. A true one-of-a-kind that made a difference to all who knew him.

    Nick, you will be sadly missed.

    Condolences to all family and friends.

    I bumped into Nick on occassions after Moreland High School and we always immediately felt as though we had seen him the previous week. Of course the main topic was the Mighty Blues. We will miss hearing of what mistakes they were making and how to fix them OR how well they were doing. Probably the easiest bloke to like. RIP.
