Obituary for Nicholas J. Naclerio

Nicholas J Naclerio, 85, of Kingstowne, VA passed away peacefully in his home on Saturday October 14, 2017. He was a loving son, proud father, dedicated soldier, and honest consultant.

Nick was born on July 22, 1932 in New York, NY to Nicholas and Gemma (Milo) Naclerio and was raised with his younger brother Anthony among hard working Italian immigrant families in the Bronx. It was there that he learned the values and ethics that would shape his life. After graduating from New York University, he was commissioned into the United States Army and married June Zimany. Together they raised four children of which he was extremely proud.

His 24 year career in the military would afford him many unique opportunities to serve and travel throughout the United States, Europe, Latin America, and South East Asia. Highlights of his career included serving as an ROTC faculty at Eastern Michigan University; defending the Fulda gap as an infantry officer in Germany, living in Panama and traveling throughout South America as part of President Kennedy’s Alliance for Progress Program; acting as an OAS observer during the Soccer War between Honduras and El Salvador; heading personnel and administration for the Army Criminal Investigation Command and later Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence; and finally serving as an administrative judge on the Army Discharge Review Board.

For the 18 years following his retirement from the Military, Nick continued to serve both state and federal government with his consulting and computer training firm. Following the September 11th attack, he began an effort to combat terrorism aboard commercial airliners. He was granted a patent for his Arline Passenger Management System (APMS) in 2002 which he continued to recommend to the Department of Homeland Security for testing and implementation up until his death.

Nick enjoyed the opera, reading biographies, discussing current events, and following the lives and careers of his children, grandchildren and friends. More than anything he loved to mentor others, on matters of finance, career, life and love. That was his gift and he continued to give through to his final days.

Nick is survived by his brother Anthony (Louise); former spouse June; four children Susan (James) Kruyne, Nick (Jackie), Jean (Robert) Abood, and Anne (Neal Zoromski); twelve grandchildren; and eight great grandchildren.

The family wishes to express their deepest appreciation to all of the people that have provided care and friendship to Nick during his final years.
