Metuchen family turns
tragedy into charity effort
SENTINEL. By JACK MURTHA
Life became a nightmare for Nancy Fuccile and her family after her husband’s murder.
A man who was later found not guilty by reason of insanity stabbed Nancy’s 36-yearold spouse, Mike, to death in September 2008 as he walked to his office in Jersey City. The victim left behind his wife and three children, whose ages were 7, 5 and 3.
“It was something that just doesn’t happen to you. It was something you see on TV, like ‘Law and Order,’ ” said Fuccile, a Metuchen resident. “Even to this day, I’ll shake my head and think, ‘I can’t believe that this happened to my husband.’ ”

METUCHEN — As a father and husband, Michael Fuccile was one of the best, his wife, Nancy, said.
When his young children wanted to go on the water rides at an amusement park on a cool day, it was Michael Fuccile who agreed to join them on the chilly adventure.
“He coached Little League. He was a hands-on father, one of the best. He was a great guy,” Nancy Fuccile said. “He was a kind man. He always wore a smile.”
