Broken wand: Nick Sacco

Our thoughts go out to Nick's family at this difficult time.


From Patterson Funeral Home:

The world is a less joyful place with the passing of Nick Sacco on October 27, 2017. Nick was that rare individual who knew the true meaning of friendship, family, loyalty and commitment. No one who met him would ever forget the experience. Born on April 27, 1947, in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Nick straddled many worlds -the food, beverage and hospitality industries, the worlds of conjuring and cardsharps, family and philanthropy, and, quite devoutly, Catholicism-all seamlessly. Intent on a business career, Nick attended both Niagara and York Universities. But he often said that he never forgot so many of the lessons he learned growing up in “The Falls”. Nick was recognized as a super salesman and manager in the food and beverage business, rising to become a National Sales Manager at Minute Maid (Coca Cola Ltd.) He treasured time with family and friends and was passionate about his magic (where he was respected internationally as an organizer, consultant and arm-chair performer).
