Passed away peacefully, at home, surrounded by his loving family. He will be greatly missed by his beloved wife and companion of 45 years, Evelyne; daughter Evelyn (Tony), grandsons Darin and Dylan; son Nico (Michelle), granddaughters Jaclyn and Victoria.
Nick is survived by brother Constantino (Maria); sisters, Anna (Giovanni), Maria (Tony), Josee (Joseph); and sisters-in-law, Theresa, Carmen and Barbara and was predeceased by parents, Giuseppe and Maria, and brothers Giacomo and Tommaso. He will be remembered by numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and good friends in BC and Montreal.
Nick's greatest joys included gardening, hunting and fishing and he shared these loves with many family members and friends. He especially enjoyed the time he spent at White Lake and treasured the friends he made there.
We wish to thank St. Elizabeth's Health Services Home Support and the many doctors and nurses who assisted us during this time.
