Nicholas Harasymow

October 19, 1948 - November 26, 2015


Nicholas Peter Harasymow, 67, of Willowbrook, Oliver, BC passed away on Thursday,

November 26, 2015 in the presence of his beloved sister, Barb and brother-in-law, John.

Nick had a passion for the outdoors. A true green thumb at heart, he loved to tend to

his garden, harvesting crops and colourful flowers. Nick was a great humanitarian in all

aspects of the word. He gave unconditionally to those around him, caring for at-risk

youth, the elderly, and always the animals. He had a gift with all living creatures, often

caring for a wounded bird, feeding a stray cat or seeding up a multitude of feeders for

the ever increasing bird population that flocked to his fence on a daily basis. One of

Nick's greatest passions was canning. We all loved his peaches, they were the best!

Nick is survived by his son, Jake Crarey (Katie) of Abbotsford, BC; his sisters, Katherine

Hartford (Bill) of Summerside, PEI, Barbara Blonde (John) of Kelowna, BC and many

beloved nieces, nephews, grand nieces, grand nephews, and cherished friends. He was

preceded in death by his parents, Jessie and Peter Harasymow and his brother, William


A celebration of life will be held in the spring of 2016 on the farm in Oliver, BC. We will

share colourful stories, remember his caring soul and his generosity for others. May you

rest in peace and take joy in knowing you've touched many lives.
