To the world... he was Nik. To his family... he was the world. With overwhelming sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved son, and cherished big brother, Nikola, on Thursday, April 25th, 2013, at the young age of 31 years (born August 30, 1981). Nik silently battled his illness until the end, with his loving and devoted family by his side at every moment. Nik will forever be known for his incomparable kindness, his unwavering strength, and unmatched generosity. Nik's love for his family and friends was truly never ending, and those that knew and loved him will be blessed by his goodness forever. His precious heart was truly golden. Nikola leaves behind his grieving parents, Lazo and Milica, to whom he was simply known as "Bogu Moj". Mourning Nik are his adoring, loyal and heartbroken sisters: Natasa Chuk, husband Petar and son Matija, and Milena (Beba) Jovanovic, husband Goran and daughter Ivana. To Mati and Ivana, Ujko Nik was everything. Devastated by his loss are Ruza, Tina and Seja, who were sisters in Nik's heart. It is impossible to count the number of lives touched by his loss. Family, friends and Kumovi will miss Nikola immensely, everyone who met him was a better person because of him. Visitation will be held at
