Nicholas R. Murri, Sr.

Heaven has gained the funniest, most generous and unconditionally loving soul. Nicholas was preceded in death by his wife, Regina (Gradel); his parents, Francis and Albert; his sister, Barbara (Janiszewski); his brother, Joseph and his son, Nicholas Jr. He is survived by his three daughters, Linda Beeman, Lisa, and Regina Allen (Daniel); his daughter-in-law, Halina; his four grandchildren, Nicholas III (Katie), Christine (Vinnie Stainer), Jennifer Johnson (CB), and Maggie Jean Allen; his three great grandchildren, Gianna, Logan and Emma; and many nieces and nephews.

Nicholas was born and raised in Philadelphia. He proudly served in the United States Army from 1955-1961 and was an expert marksman. He was stationed at Fort Knox, Kentucky and Fort Jackson, South Carolina. 

Nicholas married Regina in 1959 and relocated his family to Holland, PA in 1980. He found great joy in collecting coins, Western films, crossword puzzles, traveling the world and being surrounded by his family and friends. He especially enjoyed making others laugh with his unique sense of humor and loved solving advanced math/engineering equations. He was a phenomenal cook (Italian!), dancer, teacher and leader. He served as a local Volunteer Firefighter in his community for many years and spent decades volunteering as an Election Poll Worker.

A memorial service for friends and family will be scheduled and announced in the coming months. In lieu of flowers, donations to the “Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute” or “Holy Redeemer Health Home Care” is appreciated.

“Your presence we miss, your memory we treasure, loving you always, forgetting you never.” -Unknown

I have known and been great friends with Nick and Jean for over 60 years. They were the best. We shared so much and the loss is great. One fond memory I. have of Nick was of him trying so hard to bring my Ricky back to life after he had died in our living room. I remember him trying so hard and being so disappointed when it didn’t work. I don’t want to sound morbid as this was precious and meant so much to me. He was always right there to give his all to neighbors and friends. He will be greatly missed as is his wife, Jean.
