Former Bayside lawmaker, Nicolosi, dies at 74

By Alex Robinson

Former state Assemblyman Vincent Nicolosi died Friday after a years-long battle with breast cancer at the age of 74, relatives said.

Nicolosi represented District 25 in the state Assembly from 1973 to 1980 and later became the commissioner of the state Commission of Investigation from 1998 to 2009. The District 25 seat is now held by Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D-Fresh Meadows).

The former Bayside resident later moved to Manhasset after he left public service and entered a private law practice with his daughter, Maura.

Family members said Nicolosi was diagnosed with breast cancer more than five years ago.

His wake was set to be held at Fairchild Funeral Chapel in Manhasset Sunday and Monday between 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. His funeral was scheduled to take place at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Manhasset Tuesday at 10 a.m.
