    I was so sorry to hear of Chris’s passing, he was a great guy always took the time to stop and talk. He would light up talking about his nieces and nephews praying for his family.

    I was Chris’s third grade teacher at St. Joseph School in Wakefield. I used to call Chris and his best friend, Donald Tavano, “Pete and Repeat “! He was so cute and smart. I also became friends with his momDiane and Donald’s mom Dottie. Chis was so brave during Diane’s illness and after her death. I am still teaching third grade at St. Joseph School and I will have my class that I am teaching online now during the Covid19 pandemic pray for Chris who is back in his mother’s arms.

    We are so fortunate to have met and been in your company a few times and came to know what a respectful and kind person you were. Your Dad always spoke about you and you could tell how proud of you he was. You were such a good and caring son, always being there for him, as well as Jeannine. We are both so sad. May you rest in peace. I am sure that God will open the gates and you will reunite with your Mom and all who are waiting for you. You will forever be in our prayers and hearts.

    I’m so sorry for your loss! I was beyond sad to hear about Chris’s passing. He was my roommate in San Diego and soon became one of my best friends for the next 20 years. I will miss him dearly! He was truly one of the nicest, most genuine people I’ve known in my life. My prayers go out to the entire family!

    We are so saddened to hear of the passing of our dear friend Chris. He was a great friend to many and was always up for an adventure… we knew the faster the better. I’ve heard of so many great Nazzaro stories, and have had the pleasure to get to known him since I’ve been a part of Pete’s life.
    To his family and friends, we hope you find comfort in the memories made and times shared with Chris during this difficult time ahead.
    We will miss you Chris, but know you’ll continue to leave your mark up there with some others we so sorely miss.

Send your condolences.
