Ruislip – 8 June 2006. The Chancery regrets to announce the death of longstanding delegation member, Nicola Vecchione, – a Knight Commander of Merit with Star of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St George, within the British and Irish Delegation.
Mr Vecchione was first invested in the Order in 1989 and was knighted by the His late Holiness Pope John Paul II as a Knight of the Pontifical Order of St Gregory the Great in recognition of his contribution to the Catholic community in Great Britain.
Mr Vecchione was also honoured by the Polish Government-in-Exile shortly before the restoration of democracy in the Central European nation. He was also a member of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Westminster and a prominent businessman.
Requiescat in pace.
