Slobodan Nikolich

Slobodan Nikolich, (Sam/Danche), 84, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 6, 2019.

His warm, gregarious nature and sense of humor filled a room and his pride in his daughters, love for his grandsons, of sports and good food brought him great joy. He was a graduate of the University of Belgrade and a founding member of the Serbian Academic Club.
