Nickolas Gushulak of Kamloops passed away on his Birthday, Saturday, July 14, 2012 at the age of 94 years.
Nickolas is survived by his loving children Carol (Ken) Churchwell of Kamloops and Julian (Dianne) Gushulak of Kamloops; grandchildren Wendy (Derek) Lorcher, Christopher, David, Sally and Vance Gushulak.
Predeceased by his beloved wife Katherina, his two sons Freddy and David; granddaughter Melanie Norton; six brothers and two sisters.
Dad lived in Fort Frances, Ontario from 1939 to 1983, working at the paper mill there for 36 years, retiring in 1981, before moving to Kamloops in 1983. He was a longstanding member of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of All Saints and the Order of St. Andrews. Dad loved fishing and hunting and was still hunting with his son well into his 80's. He told great stories and had a wonderful sense of humour.
A special thanks go to Dr. H. Stefanyk who went above and beyond to keep Dad comfortable; also thanks to the staff at the Hamlets on D2, with heartfelt thanks to Colleen and Amy who were with him to the end, they were Dad's favourites.
As Dad always said:
"God bless you and your family."
