Nikstad, James Michael

James Michael Nikstad, 65, of Winsted, husband of the late Patricia A. Nikstad, passed away Friday, November 17th, 2017 at his home. Born in Hartford on June 22nd, 1952, he was the son of the late Clinton and Anna (Kohan) Nikstad.
Early in Jim’s (Jimmy, Jimbo as some called him) career, he leased his 1978 GMC Astro cabover to Allstate Trucking, a division of P.I.E. (Pacific Intermountain Express) hauling on his 42’ aluminum Raven’s trailer filled with anything from Jet engines to Radiation equipment; from hand split fence railing to farm equipment and back hoes. He traveled from Maine to California, from Idaho to Colorado, and all over this beautiful country. In the early 80’s Jim acquired local leasing rights. He hung up his over-the-road shoes and traded in his Astro for a Ford Tri-axle dump trunk. He began hauling local loads for Tomaso’s and helping his dad with his paving business. He then bought a Single Conventional Peterbilt and leased it to White and Son’s and hauled fuel oil and gasoline all over Connecticut. In the 90’s, Jim yearned for the open-road again and purchased a new double wide Conventional Peterbilt complete with dropdown deck trailer and starting hauling loads all over the United States. In the 2000’s, Jim decided it was time to come home again and returned to Tri-axle hauling.
Jim was a very quiet and private man with a need for speed that started when he was an adolescent and continued late into his life; from riding motorbikes in and out of mud holes to his most recent joy of go carts, winning numerous trophies. Jim loved nothing more than the wind in his face while riding his Harley. He loved going to watch the modifieds where ever he could and watching NASCAR racing. No matter where Jim went or what he did, his gentle presence touched everyone he met and left many lasting bonds and friendships. His passing will leave an everlasting void in our hearts that can only be filled with the memory of his endless smile and grace.
The Funeral Liturgy will be celebrated Tuesday (Dec. 19) at 10:00am in St. Patrick Church, Collinsville followed by burial in Calvary Cemetery, Collinsville.

Stone, Roy E.

Roy E. Stone died Saturday, December 2, 2017 at his home in Avon, Connecticut. He was 90 years old. Roy was born February 11, 1927 in Evansville, Indiana where he spent the first 42 years of his life. Roy was predeceased by his wife of 55 years, Dorothy (Henning). He is also predeceased by his parents Joseph and Rosalie (Endress) Stone and 3 brothers, Norb, Don and Frank. He is survived by four children, Ron (Julie) of Avon, Connecticut, Mark of Louisville, Kentucky, Nancy Cassidy (Ed) of Lincoln Park, New Jersey and Wayne (Cindy) of Birmingham, Alabama, as well as 11 grandchildren, 6 greatgrandchildren and Tom Brady.
Roy attended Reitz Memorial High School in Evansville and graduated from St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Indiana. In his school days, not much was more important than football and Roy distinguished himself on the gridiron. He wasn’t the biggest, or the strongest but was one of the toughest. When you lined up across from Roy Stone, you were in for a long afternoon. He was a veteran of WWII, serving in the Navy. The term “Greatest Generation” typifies people like Roy.
Roy had a successful business career, working as an executive for Mead Johnson, Allied Chemical and finally retiring from Heublein in the late 70’s. He had an accidental second career later in life joining his son Ron’s startup, Stone Marketing in Farmington, as an advisor in 1985. The advisor role was intended to be short-term but he kept an office at the business for 30 years and played a key role in the business’s ultimate success.
Roy was member at the Golf Club of Avon for over 40 years. He golfed well into his 80’s enjoying many rounds with close friends. In his youth, Roy “hot walked” horses at Ellis Park racetrack in Evansville. This inspired a lifelong passion for horse racing. A $2 bettor, it wasn’t about gambling but using his unique and complex handicapping formula to beat the odds. In addition to golf and horse racing he was into the New England Patriots like few others. No visitors, no phone calls, no distractions were allowed during Patriots games.
The family thanks homecare aids Emmanuel, Kato, Cindy and Jeanine for their care and devotion to Roy. Special thanks go to care aid Gregg Nargi. Gregg was with Roy for over two years and largely made it possible for him to remain in his house until the end. Thanks also to Linda Comandini, his hospice nurse who was always there for Roy and the family.
There are no calling hours. The family will hold a celebration of Roy’s life at some point in the not too distant future.
