TRIBUTE: River Vale Native DJ 'Nicky' Pistone Passes At 36

Nicholas Biagio Pistone – a popular deejay and sound engineer from Bergen County – died Friday in Westwood at 36.

A River Vale native and recent Fair Lawn resident, “Nicky” loved writing and producing music.

Of the jobs he took while studying criminal justice at Ramapo College, and afterward, nearly all involved music.

Pistone, who also briefly lived in Montvale, created Nicky X Entertainment and Productions, offering services for any occasion, while creating and recording hip-hop, house, trance, prog house, hard house and more “in my home recording studio.”

He could make people laugh, too. Last Sunday, Pistone posted a Facebook photo of his dinner for watching the Academy Awards’ red carpet walk: Boxes of Popeye’s fried chicken.

Besides young Blake, Pistone is survived by his mother, Francine; his brother, Joseph, sister in-law Lana; his nephew, Blake; his close friend, Joe Abbate, and aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was predeceased by his father, Joseph Biagio Pistone.

The family will receive guests at Becker Funeral Home , 219 Kinderkamack Road in Westwood from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Thursday.

A celebration of Nicky’s life will be held at the funeral home at 11 a.m. Friday, followed by interment in Westwood Cemetery.

Memorial contributions can be made in his name to the Mental Health Association Of Rockland County: MHARockland.org/shop/donate .
