Nicholas Baccari

It is with great sadness that the family of Nicholas Baccari share his passing on March 2, 2018, after a long battle with addiction. He was the beloved son of Susan Baccari of Jamestown and Scott Christopher of Charlestown.

He is survived by his identical twin brother, Alessandro Baccari, and his siblings, Dimitri, Antonio, Giancarlo and Isabella Varrecchione, Brooke Christopher and stepsister Meghan Doak. He was the stepson of Christopher Varrecchione and Elisabeth Christopher. He also leaves behind his loving grandparents, Richard and Susanne Baccari, of Narragansett, and Albert and Anne Christopher, of West Kingstown, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Nicholas graduated from North Kingstown High School and attended Dean College. Nicholas worked as a commercial fisherman alongside his dad on the F/V Brooke Elise out of Point Judith. He was known for his huge heart and great bear hugs. He had the most contagious smile and vibrant energy. His kind-hearted nature was loved by all. Nicholas had a passion for sports, hunting, fishing and spending time outdoors. He was adored by his grandparents where he spent Sundays enjoying family dinners. Nicholas was notorious for movie one-liners and spoiling the ending. He was a loyal New England sports fan, often making his feelings towards the game known from across the house. He was a compassionate listener and was always there when you needed advice.

Nicholas’ passing will leave a tremendous hole in our hearts. Our sweet Nicholas, may you fly with the angels.

His funeral will be at 8:45 a.m. Friday, March 9, from the Nardolillo Funeral Home, South County Chapel, 1111 Boston Neck Road (Route 1A), Narragansett, followed by a Mass of Christian burial at 10 a.m. in St. Mark Church, Jamestown. Burial will be private. Visiting hours are 5-8 p.m. Thursday.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Nicholas Baccari’s GoForth Foundation for addiction, 10 Weatherly Court , Jamestown, RI 02835.
