Nicholas Anthony Amodio, Jr.

October 11, 1936 - April 26, 2022

Nicholas Anthony Amodio, Jr., 85, a resident of North Fort Myers, FL for the past 12 years, formerly of Clifton Park, NY, passed away Tuesday, April 26, 2022 in North Fort Myers. He was born October 11, 1936 in Bronx, NY to Nicholas Amodio Sr. and Antoinette Amodio, now deceased.

Nick was a graduate of Dewitt Clinton High School and The City College of NY.   He was a veteran of the US Army and served his country with distinction.   After the Army Nick was a financial professional for many years.  Nick had a rare talent with numbers, and an uncanny memory.

In his early years, Nick was a gifted athlete who loved to win. He excelled at baseball, and later in the Army he was a member of the traveling softball team. After the Army, he continued to play on corporate and recreational teams. Nick also had a love for the game of tennis and played competitively for many years.  Later in life, Nick fell in love with golf and was an avid golfer who experienced 5 holes in one in his lifetime.  Not only was Nick an athlete, but he was also a passionate fan of all the New York area sports teams, especially the Bronx Bombers!

Nick was part of a loving family growing up and was a devoted son and a loving brother.  Early on Nick saw the importance of love, faith and family.  He was a loving husband and father, but, it all started with his wife.  He would always say, “have you ever met a woman as great as her in your life.” There was nothing he wouldn’t do for his wife and children.   Nick was happiest when spending time together with his wife and family.   He was very involved with his children’s and grandchildren’s activities and was a passionate coach and fan.      

Nick was passionate about everything he did in life. He was extremely talented with projects around the house and was always willing to lend a hand to help family and friends.  He would work tirelessly without taking breaks until the job was done, showing his commitment and dedication in everything he did. 

Nick and his wife moved to the Six Lakes Community in North Fort Myers where they enjoyed an active, fun-filled retirement with cherished friends. Nick was dedicated to the community, served on the board and assisted on many projects for Six Lakes, which he often referred to as the Garden of Eden. 

Nicholas was of the Catholic Faith and was a member of St. Therese Catholic Church in North Fort Myers. 

He is survived by his beloved wife of 60 years, Rosalie Amodio of North Fort Myers; four loving children, Nicholas Amodio, III (Dena) of Clifton Park, NY, Laura Guillerault (Robert) of Saratoga Springs, NY, Charles Amodio (Kymberly) of Saratoga Springs, and Stephen Amodio (Amy) of Houston, TX; sister, Linda Scutari of Averill Park, NY; grandchildren Nicholas, Chris, Joseph, Natalie, Julia, Nathan, Jenna, Jane and Joanna.
