Anthony J. "Nic" Morrison obit
ALBANY Anthony J. "Nic" Morrison entered into eternal life on his 47th birthday, October 1, 2009, at the Hospice Inn at St. Peter's Hospital, ten days after suffering a devastating stroke. Nic was employed at the NYS Center for Employment and Economic Support in Albany at the time of his death, a position he held for the past 12 years. Nic previously worked at the Paper Cutter and FantaCo Comics in Albany. Some knew him as Anthony, some as Nic and others even knew him as "The Geek" but all who knew him called him friend. He enjoyed his comics, movies, music and frequent shopping trips to Best Buy. He loved to debate politics and religion but, most of all, he could laugh. An intelligent man, he was quick witted with a dark sense of humor that constantly amused those around him. Nic was a kindhearted man who loved life and, most of all, loved his God. A deeply spiritual man, there is no doubt he is in Heaven now with his Lord. Nic was the beloved godfather of Christian, Keegan and Lily and the companion of Imelda the cat. He leaves a family of dear friends who will cherish his memory and miss him dearly. Words cannot begin to express how thankful we are for the care Nic received from the staff of the St. Peter's ICU, who did all that they could for Nic, and for the comfort and care received from the staff at the St. Peter's Hospice Inn during Nic's final days. Friends may call on Sunday, October 4 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Applebee Funeral Home, 403 Kenwood Avenue, Delmar. A service to remember Nic and celebrate his life will be held on Monday, October 5 at 2 p.m. at the funeral home. Burial will follow in Albany Rural Cemetery, Menands. Those who wish may send a remembrance in his name to the Community Hospice of Albany, 445 New Karner Rd., Albany, NY 12205.
