Condolences & Memories (9 entries)
My Mom and Dad (Paul and Olga Faraci) were very close friends with Helen and Nick for many years. It was my Dad who got Nick and the restaurant involved with the FFFD in Ingolf, Ont. Nick always had Jet memorabilia for my Dad to give to my brother Tony. Later on in 1999 I had my quaint Wedding celebration supper at Dionysos Rest. Nick with his beautiful friendly eyed smile came over and we all had a toast together. Such fond memories. Rest in eternal peace Mr. Nick. My Mom and Dad will be greeting you in Heaven. 😪❤🙏 - Posted by: Rosemary Faraci Wade (Friend) on: Feb 11, 2023
On behalf of the entire family our deepest heartfelt condolences. Our father met Nick through his work but soon became good friends. We had the pleasure of celebrating all of our birthdays and anniversarys with Nick. As our father aged, going out was a chore for him unless it was to Dionysis where he felt (and was treated) like family. Friday was a day he looked forward too and Nick never disappointed. A wonderful man who will be greatly missed. Cheryl Alexander - Posted by: Cheryl Alexander (Friend) on: Feb 09, 2023
Our deepest sympathy to the whole family. He will be truly missed by all. Uncle Nick may you rest in peace. Love Konstantopoulos Family. - Posted by: Mary Konstantopoulos & Family (Uncle) on: Feb 05, 2023
I haven’t thought about Dionysos in so long, but when I heard of Nick’s passing, memories came flooding in. My Dad, Jim Jackson, spent many Tuesday nights after bowling at the restaurant. I can still smell the leftover pizza he would bring home. As a family, we would eat at the restaurant often, and as a kid, the never ending Shirley Temples were a highlight. I will never forget the night that Randy Carlyle played his 1000th game. He was my hero, and Nick invited me to the after party at the restaurant so that I could meet my him. It is a memory I still cherish to this day. My condolences go out to his entire family. He was a wonderful man who left a legacy behind. Anyone who was lucky enough to know him is saddened by losing him. Rest in peace Nick - Posted by: Shannon Wood (Jackson) (Friend) on: Feb 05, 2023
Winnipeg AHEPA Chapter Polikos Aster CJ8 and the AHEPA Family express deepest sympathy and offer our prayers to the family of Nick Boutroucas. Nick’s strong lifelong work ethic, dedication to family/community, hospitality (philoxenia), and positive attitude extended to the AHEPA Family with a passion of commitment to philanthropy and Hellenism. After joining the Order of AHEPA (American Hellenic and Progressive Association) in 1968, he served actively for over 54 years in various capacities including Chapter Governor, Chapter Vice President, District 24 Convention Officer, and chairman of numerous chapter committees. He contributed with enthusiasm, generosity, and tireless commitment to many cultural/charitable activities of the Order in the community. Currently, he served as the chapter’s Chairman of the Board of Governors. Many a time, he made the extra effort to ensure the success of these endeavours; whether it was the Folklorama, Greek Fest., the OXI Day Celebration, AHEPA Golf Tournament, District 24 Convention, AHEPA Picnic, many sporting events, or other Hellenic educational/cultural/charitable community events. His effort at organizing the chapter’s yearly donation to the Winnipeg Firefighters’ Burn Fund was also dear to him and our members. Brother Nick’s kindness and generosity touched many chapter members and was only matched by his anecdotal sense of humour that brought much laughter with underlining meaning to many of us. Aristotle once said: “We are what we do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit”. Truly Brother Nick’s habits taught us how to achieve excellence in life. His contribution in life fulfilled the ideals of Hellenism which include: education, philanthropy, family & individual excellence, education, and civic responsibly through community service and volunteerism. Eonia Eimnemi (May his memory be eternal). - Posted by: William Constan/Secretary - Order of AHEPA Winnipeg (Friend) on: Feb 04, 2023
On behalf of my family, I like to express my deepest condolences and offer our prayers for your loss. Nick was a personal friend for many years and fellow AHEPAN. His openness and hospitality was only matched by his positive attitude and sense of humour. He is fondly remembered from the Dionysos Resaurant to the Order of AHEPA. I was also fortunate to participate with him in many community activities which demonstrated to me how to live life to its fullest in friendship and philanthropy. His fullness in life and enthusiasm is an example for us all to follow. Eonia Eimnemi (May his memory be eternal). - Posted by: William Constan and Family (Friend) on: Feb 04, 2023
I am so sorry to hear of your Father’s passing Marina. I remember many years of enjoying his delicious food. Truly one of a kind. Rest In Peace - Posted by: Susan Borkowsky (Friend ) on: Feb 04, 2023
We are so sorry for your loss, he was a great man. We visited your restaurant many times with family and friends. All of your family made us feel that we were one of your family. Thanks for such wonderful memories. - Posted by: George Chris and Bradley and Brent Kryschuk (Patron) on: Feb 04, 2023
My deepest condolences to the entire Boutroucas family. Nick was such a kind, caring, and hard-working man. I had the privilege of meeting Nick when I was a young teenager and he and my dad were close friends. I spent hundreds of hours at Dionysos Restaurant over the years, calling it my second home. Nick became a close friend to me and to our basketball team, along with our girlfriends, wives, and all of our friends. I loved the times I got to attend the annual Firefighters Fishing Derby with Nick, something that was so close to his heart. He was always the consummate host.. cooking for all the guys as he did at the restaurant for so many years. I have missed the restaurant for many years now since Nick retired...and now I will miss my dear friend Nick. Rest well good man. - Posted by: Cam Moskal (Friend) on: Feb 04, 2023
