ILCISIN, Nick

1924 – 2013

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Nick passed away peacefully with his family by his side on August 23, 2013 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital. Nick was born on August 19, 1924 in Legnava, Czechoslovakia. He immigrated to Canada in 1948 and in 1956 married Joyce Cody. They lived in Red Deer for 5 years where he worked as a carpenter. They moved to Sylvan Lake where they farmed until June of this year when they moved into Red Deer. His love of the farm and his cattle kept him working hard right up to the end. He is survived by Joyce, his wife of 57 years; three daughters, Marilyn and Joe Reiswig, Marion and Ray Miller, Helen and Dean Hughes; one son, Mike and Jayne Ilcisin. He is also survived by ten grandchildren and 9 3/4 great grandchildren. Nick left his family and friends with many wonderful memories. A mass celebrating a long life well lived will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Saturday, August 31, at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to “Ronald MacDonald House”, 5002 39 St. Red Deer, Alberta T4N 2P2
