Nicholas Squarek Sr. Obituary

    With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Nick Squarek of Hillcrest, AB on October 3, 2023 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB.  He was 80 years of age.

   Nick was born in Hillcrest, AB on October 27, 1942 to parents, Margaret and Nick Squarek.  He remained in the Crowsnest Pass his entire life, raising a family with his beloved wife, Lois (Née: Truitt), providing for that family by working hard in the area coal mines, and creating lifelong friendships.  His commitment to the community was evident through his memberships with the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 7, Blairmore and the Hillcrest Miners’ Club where he was also a past President.  In his free time, Nick enjoyed going camping, fishing, making wine and cheering on the Oilers and Dodgers.  More than anything, however, he cherished time spent with his family, and he was incredibly proud of each of them.  Nick will live on in the hearts of all who knew him.          

   Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his sons, Nick (Giulia) and Dean; his grandchildren, Samantha and Chelsi (Cody); his great-grandchildren, Walker and Annalee; his sister, Florence; his brother-in-law, Allan Truitt; his sister-in-law, Joan; as well as his extended family and many friends.

   He was predeceased by his wife, Lois; his parents, Margaret and Nick; his daughter-in-law, Linda; his brothers, Robert and Steve; and his sister, Margaret.

   Nick’s family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Maritz, home care, and nursing staff at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre for the phenomenal care they provided and compassion they showed.
