MARCETTA, Nikola (Nick)
The Guest Book is expired.
February 22, 1939 - June 7, 2012
It is with sadness that we announce that Nick passed away peacefully after a long illness.
Nick was born in Cadomin, Alberta and spent most of his life living near the mountains that he loved. He was a skilled welder in the oil patch, a hunter, heavy equipment operator, volunteer fireman, welding instructor, gold panner, card player, story teller and above all a proud grandfather. Nick made friends everywhere he went. He was happiest when surrounded by close friends and family where he could spin tales.
Nick is survived by his wife Maureen; sons Nick (Lora), Dale (Rob); daughter Maria (Cory); his grandchildren Amber, Jordain, and Jolene; his brothers Peter (Shirley), Milan (Arlene), Marko (Brenda) and many other relatives and friends.
In respect of Nick's wishes there will be no funeral service. A celebration of Nick's life will be held at the Pioneer 73 Club, 29 St. Lawrence Avenue, Devon, Alberta on Saturday, June 16, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Heart & Stroke Foundation, 10985 - 124 Street, Edmonton, AB T5M 0H9.
