Reflections for Sergeant Nicholas G. Sottile

Nick even though I haven’t posted anything in the past not a year goes by with me not thinking of you as a wonderful classmate of the 68th Basic Recruit Academy but also as a loyal great friend and person. January 12th is a day that we will never forget our loss as our love and compassion lives on forever. I never travel US 27 without pulling over at the memorial and saying a prayer for you and your family. RIP Brother and I was most honored to have you as a friend. Respectfully Sam Gibbs, FHP Retired and Class President of the 68th Recruit Class

Hey Nick! Still missing you more than you know. How we all wished that you could have been at Heather’s wedding (physically) but know that you were with us in so many other ways. Your “Brotherhood” represented you well. What a special memory for Heather. Keep on watching over us!

Hey. Nick. I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately. Can’t believe it’s almost 15 years I’m sure you look down here at your family with great pride I’m sorry I couldn’t get to *****’s wedding. The pictures looked great and it was wonderful that all the troopers showed up to be with her. I’m very sorry I missed that. Just wanted to say I miss you , my friend

January 12, 2019 - 12 years

Reading this page again after another year and you start saying things like "Was he really only 48?" "I still can't believe this happened" "Why is the POS that shot him able to drag this through the court system 12 years later?"

But the one thing that stays the same is that this picture never fails to make me smile (might be a watery one) because it reminds me so much of who you were. Still missing you!!

Sergeant Nicholas G. Sottile will never ever be forgotten. I thank him for his services to the people of the State Florida, and to all those people who spends anytime in the State of Florida. May his soul rest in Heaven, and may God bless his family, especially his son who served as Florida State Trooper.

Stopping by to leave a tribute to a great friend who is missed dearly. So many good times together, too many laughs to recount. Try as I might to cleanse that day from my memory it remains, and always will. Continue your vigilance over us until we meet again. See ya buddy.
