Toms River, NJ

"Nicholas John Paciulli, 93, died peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of February 16, 2024; not surprising that it was at a time that he was known to get his best rest as a self-proclaimed night owl. He was born on August 31, 1930 in Garfield to Giuseppe and Concetta Paciulli before moving to Toms River to raise his three sons in 1968. He was a skilled craftsman as a trained carpenter for over 50 years. Nick proudly and honorably served overseas as a Sergeant in the US Army during the Korean War. He received numerous commendations and citations. One of his fondest memories was his work in the kitchen preparing meals for his fellow soldiers. For many years, Nick served as the President for the Silverton Chapter of the Deborah Heart and Lung Center, and as a result acquired numerous awards for his highly successful fundraising events and volunteer work. Nick was most known for his love of dancing the jitterbug, reading, cooking, US history, politics, watching the NY Giants, his annual pilgrimage to Genevieve\u0027s Chocolates to surprise his grandchildren with the largest, jaw-dropping chocolate Easter bunny, the most challenging jigsaw puzzles he could get his hands on, and a love of conversation with anyone he met. Even in his final days, he was flashing a smile and sharing a tale or memory with his family, nurses, and visitors. Nick is survived by his brother John and his three sons Joseph (Nancy), Anthony (Laura) and Nicholas (Maryann). Nick had six grandchildren Nicole (Ken Esposito), Anthony (Tara Paciulli), Alexandra (Jacob Vanderbilt), Matthew, Nicholas and Gianna. He will be fondly remembered by his two great grandchildren, Layla and Anthony and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Nick was truly dedicated to his family and will be dearly missed.
