As members of the Marsicano family in North America, our hearts go out to his partner, friends, and family.September 8, 2020
15+ years knowing you feels like 15 seconds. Too short. You made skiing and snowboarding possible and doable for me and many people who you won’t know you’ve touched by your generosity. Deepest condolences to Niki and your family and daughter. Your journey with Niki and your family and others will continue on in spirit. You created lots of good things in this life and the legacy of what you have done will live on in the people who knew you. The things you have created and events you got off the ground are a testament to you. You’ve lived a very full life and whilst it ended early you made the most out of every day. So now we bid you farewell but not goodbye because knowing you created a memory that will remain in everyone’s hearts and minds.
Thank you again and again and again… I see you riding off into the sunset on a bike with a pair of skis and a snowboard on another adventure somewhere in the heavens…
