He is survived by his sisters Victoria (Maurice) and Olga (Mike), nieces and nephews as well as community friends from Vita and Gardenton. Nick was predeceased by his parents Annie (nee Poshtar) and Wasyl Krelaty, sisters Mary and Anne and brothers Joe, Fred, and Sidney. Nick served in the Second World War as a radio operator on the front lines and returned to earn three degrees from the University of Manitoba.

  • My thoughts are with the Krelaty family at this difficult time. Xo - Posted by: Faye Collins née Krelaty (Niece) on: Apr 21, 2013

  • Uncle Nick - haven't seen you in a long time - since before dad ( Sidney) died in 1976. When I saw the photo of you in your younger days it brought back so many wonderful memories. Memories such as visiting baba and GIGO in Gardenton, taking the cows to pasture, picking eggs from the hens, picking vegetables from the garden with baba. So many wonderful memories which you were part of. Rest in peace and say hi to dad for me. Tell him we love him and think of him all the time . - Posted by: Caroline Krelaty Werle (Niece) on: Apr 20, 2013

  • I am so disappointed that our family has been so distance. My dad Sidney Krelaty died so young and I have not been in contact with the family for many years. When we were young we drove to the farm in Gardinton every year. I loved my grandparents and I loved the general store and the farm. I was never in contact with Nick because he was always in school. My heart goes out to him and I sincerely wish I could have seen him again. I just found out today that he died as I went on the website hoping to chat and get a picture of the farm and general store. I am so sorry that I left it too late. Nick I was so hoping to visit you soon. It would have brought back a lot of wonderful memories. - Posted by: Virginia Krelaty Whitlow (Uncle) on: Apr 19, 2013
