Obituary for Nicholas Vukson

Passed peacefully at home November 6, 2018. Predeceased by his beloved wife Donna (2015).
Loving father to Paul (Celine), Greg, Sandra (Dr. Leo Vos) and John (Susan). Much loved grandfather to Julianna(Dustin) Weidman, Laura, Jonathon and Mathew Vukson, Sara and Connie Vukson, Aaron, Jennifer (James Rogers) and Cory Vos, Caroline(Steve) Funston, Elizabeth (Scott McIntosh), Timothy and Emma Vukson and Great-Grandfather to 8. Survived by his sisters, Marie Lindberg, Helen Baccoka, brother Ron (Nancy), brother-in-law John Colbert and sister- in law Gerda Smith. Predeceased by his brothers, Dan and Michael, sisters, Anne, Betty, Diane, and Florence. He will be missed greatly by nieces and nephews and many friends and neighbours in Toronto, London, and Brantford. Nicholas was born in The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovens on February 25, 1925. When he was 2 he emigrated with his parents Aron and Mara (Trbovic) to Sault Saint Marie Ontario. At the age of 15 he delivered telegraph messages and then left his home to take a position with the CNR telegraph office in Southern Ontario. On his 18th birthday in 1943 he enlisted in WW 2 by joining RCN. He trained as a Telegraphist (Special Operator) and was assigned to the Frigate HMCS Lanark protecting convoys from Newfoundland to Londonderry. When Germany surrendered, he immediately volunteered to serve in the Pacific theatre, but the war ended before first sailing. Nicholas returned to the private sector, met the love of his life Donna, had 4 children, and enjoyed 45 years with CNCP Telecommunications in Toronto. He loved gardening, skiing, singing, and keeping up with current events. When not attending innumerable family events and grandchildren’s programs, he loved travelling with Donna. Nicholas will be deeply missed. He was completely dedicated to his family and met life’s challenges with an unflinching determination. His devotion and love for all he undertook in life has been a beacon of inspiration to all. Friends will be received at the Dennis Toll Funeral Home 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford Sunday 2-5 pm, and at the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home 246 Thames Street South, Ingersoll on Monday November 12, 2018 from 10:30-11 am with the funeral service at 11 am. Interment to follow in the Ingersoll Rural Cemetery. Donations can be made to the War Amps and Presbyterian World Service and Development.
