Nicky was born to Nicholas and Marie (nee Cocozziello) Silvestri in 1951. He was one of seven children, raised here in Denville. After his schooling he learned a trade and has worked as an electrical contractor for most of his life. He was the owner of Tow Path Maintenance. Nick was an avid golfer, and could be found often enough at Peace Pipe Country Club. He was a great friend, amazing brother and uncle and a wonderful son. With his fantastic sense of humor, Nick faced these last few years with a smile and bravely was able to joke until the end. His way of making us at ease and bringing out our best laughter will never be forgotten. He will be missed beyond words.

Predeceased by his dear nephew Nicholas Haid; he leaves happy memories to his parents Nicholas Sr. and Marie; siblings Phyllis Hershberger, Anthony (Jackie), Marie Fischer (Gary), Florence Haid, Angela Howard (Russell), and Charles (Linda); his children Dena and Nicholas III; two grandsons; 11 nieces and nephews, 8 great nieces and nephews and many more dear relatives, golf buddies, dear friends and acquaintances.
