Obituary of Nicholas J. Piacente
It is with a heavy heart that the family of Nicholas James Piacente is announcing the death of their son and brother.
Nicholas was 31 years of age and died suddenly November 19, 2022. His death was caused by a two inch, (2"), blood clot in the left anterior descending coronary artery in his heart, which is rare for his age.
Nick was a gentle soul and was an animal lover. He enjoyed vacationing in the mountains and recently joined a hiking club. He also enjoyed the arts, especially opera. He played the clarinet and was first chair clarinetist consecutively three years in Suffolk County,(S.C.E.M.A.), consecutively three years at New York State Music association., (N.Y.S.S.M.A.). Additionally, he was first chair clarinetist at the Best of All Eastern, 2009. Moreover, he performed at Carnegie Hall.
To describe Nick as a scholar is an understatement. Nick was valedictorian class of 2009 while attending Mattituck High School. In 2013, he graduated Princeton University: Summa Cum Laude.
In 2014 he decided to change careers and left the financial district. He attended St. John's Law school where he received a full scholarship. For the past 4 years he is a practicing attorney.
Nick is survived by his parents Keith and Christine, his sister Christine M., (Giles Smith), his niece Lillian, his nephew Augustine, and Uncle Al.
The family hopes that God is holding him in the palm of his hand.
