Born in Volodymyr Volynsk, Ukraine. Passed away peacefully just six weeks before his 97th birthday at Credit Valley Hospital. Predeceased by his parents Vsevolod and Agripina (Sosai). Beloved husband of 67 years of the late Maria Leshchuk (2015). He is survived by his children George (Marvie) Leshchuk of Nanaimo, BC and Iris (John) Krawchenko and his grandchildren Gregory Leshchuk (Geneva, Switzerland), Stirling Scory (Saint John, NB ), and Augustine Krawchenko, Dominique Krawchenko and Sebastian Krawchenko. Nicholas will be fondly remembered by his nieces and nephews in Ukraine.

Nicholas was a 32-year employee at Stanley Steel in Hamilton and was a long-time member of St Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Church. He belonged to numerous organizations and committees, including the Ukrainian Self-Reliance League of Canada, Ukrainian Canadian Congress, Ukrainian Social Services and the Order of St. Andrew. After arriving to Canada in 1954, he lived most of his life in Hamilton. In 2015, he moved to Ivan Franko Retirement Home in Mississauga and enjoyed his time there.

We are very grateful for the wonderful care he received over the last 6 months at the Credit Valley Hospital.

Dear George, Iris & Families:
We were saddened to hear about the repose of your Father, Nicolas, and cherish wonderful memories of him over the years. Your collage is a testament to his immeasurable devotion to family, faith & his Ukrainian culture. Certainly, he was one of the pillars upon which our beautiful parish was built in Hamilton.

May the Lord's intercession provide solace, strength & support to lessen the grieving of his loved ones. May his memory be eternal! Vichnaya Pamyat!
