Nicola Carone has left a void in the hearts of those who knew and cherished him. Nicola passed away on Thursday, March 21, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of hard work and kindness that will be fondly remembered.

He was born in 1956, Nicola’s commitment to his role as a custodian extended beyond the walls of the school he served. His work ethic and warm smile brightened the days of many within the school community.

He dedicated this life to his family, his children, and grandchildren, who meant the world to him.  He also always found time to care for others more than for himself. He always inspired us to dream big, taught us our values and gave us our morals to pass along to future generations.

Nicola Carone is survived by his beloved spouse, Denise Carone, his loving daughter and son-in-law, Victoria and Michael Wright, his devoted son Andrew Carone, his grandchildren Michael Paul and Luca James. As well as his caring sister Maria Abbate, his supportive brother Frank Carone, and his loving sister Porzia Schnettler.

Nicola moved to North Carolina to be with his family. The family will have a prayer service at 4 PM on Saturday, April 20, 2024 in the funeral home chapel. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 2 PM to 4 PM at Bright Funeral Home 405 S. Main St. Wake Forest, NC 27587.

As we bid farewell to Nicola Carone, let us hold dear the memories we shared with him and carry forward the values of kindness and dedication that he embodied. May his soul rest in peace knowing that he was cherished by many whose lives he touched.
