Regarding: The passing of Nick Attanasio
It is with great sorrow that we share the news of the passing of, drumming great, Nick Attanasio at 8AM on Monday, November 19, 2018. The U.S.A.R.D. and the entire drumming community is greatly saddened by his departing. Mr. Attanasio touched so many lives in the drumming community and loved by his family and so many of his extended family of drummers. We all convey our thoughts, prayers and condolences to the family. Nick was a member of The World Drum Corps Hall of Fame and an Honorary Life Member of the U.S.A.R.D.
We do not have further information at this time on funeral arrangements, but we will be passing that along when we receive it.
Rest in peace old friend as God has blessed us with you long stay on this earth.
