His loved ones, friends, and colleagues will always remember his amazing cooking skills, his love for his family, and his love for the Yankees, Rangers and Giants. His greatest love, however, was reserved for his boys, Nicholas and Lucas. He loved teaching them the ways of the world, coaching their teams and cheering them on.   


He taught them the importance of family, how to grow up to be good men and how to apply the lessons of Star Wars and the Avengers to life.


Born August 11, 1974, he spent childhood summers playing baseball with his friends in the neighborhood with his dad and grandfather by his side coaching, and eating Chinese roast pork sandwiches with his Mom at the diner.


His love of sports continued in high school where he was a star player on the football team and developed friendships that continued through his life. He attended Ithaca College where he majored in Marketing. He also played rugby and made friends who were thought of as brothers.


He met his wife, Chrissy at work and they were married 5 years later. In 2010 Nicholas John was born, followed by Lucas Jackson in 2013. That’s when Nick’s life truly began. He loved his boys more than anything and always spoke to them about growing up to be kind and respectful men. He would always tell them “I love you 3000,” a line from their favorite Avenger movies.


Nick is survived by his wife, Christine and his sons, Nicholas and Lucas, his parents, Nicholas and Michele Magalhaes, his sister, Jayme Amoroso (Michael), his brother, Philip Magalhaes, niece Elyse and nephews Christian and William. 


Beloved nephew of Ronnie and Freddie Scheferman and Nedra LeConte, great aunt, Theresa Magalhaes and loving uncles, cousins and extended family. He was predeceased by his mother, Elyse Magalhaes.

  14. When I first met you, you were a very precocious 4 year old with curly blonde hair. I never met such a young child who could express himself so articulately.

Most importantly, you are finally reunited with your mother.
