Nicholas “Nick” Allen Valentino, of Denville, passed away on Saturday, December 23, 2017. He was 23 years young.
Born and raised in Denville, Nick was a natural athlete. He was amazing at baseball, soccer, tennis, and ping pong, among many other things. Nick was so talented, he actually taught himself how bend the soccer ball so that it would go into the goal on an out of bounds, corner kick. He had a zest for life and all the gifts it had to offer. He treasured all living things, animals and amphibians included. He will always be remembered and treasured in our hearts and souls for the kind and compassionate soul that he was.
Predeceased by his Aunt Sara Wilson Wardamasky, he is survived by his beloved mom, Katherine “Kit” Valentino and her fiancé, Mitchell Allison; his cherished brother, Victor Valentino; his loving fiancé, Sierra Daniels; his caring grandma, Sara B. Wilson; his Uncles, Dave Wardamasky and David Wilson and his wife Diane; his dear cousins, Juliette Wardamasky, Michelle, Matthew, and Emily Wilson; his beloved rescued dog, Buddy; and many more extended family and friends.
