Nick Rosa

Friends Past President Nick Rosa passed away unexpectedly in January 2022.  Our deepest condolences are extended to his entire family and friend circle. Nick’s style and spirit lifted us all up at the BCOA and for that we are ever grateful. May God bless his soul.  Nick left the Friends Board after some 17 years of committed leadership to ensure that funding was acquired to help the Billerica COA supplement its town budget, last Fall.

He had a fascinating journey helping to recruit directors for this 501 (C) 3 organization who were engaged, enthusiastic and did everything in their power to raise dollars to bring added resources, programs and more to the COA. He brought on strong business and community executives from places like Middlesex Community college who were able to identify opportunities and strategies to increase gifts from their organizations. He stressed how much he loved working with all the directors. He so remembered Bill Foley- “he would do anything to help. He was a decent, decent man.”

Nick left the Friends organization in great hands having worked recently to recruit hard-working Billericans who value aging and are willing to raise money and acquire other resources  to improve the lives of seniors in town. He leaves us with a great sentiment – “I really love people. There is always something you learn from people as long as you keep your eyes and ears open, because you don’t know everything.”
