Raymond Nikiforuk Sr. Obituary

With heavy hearts we mourn the sudden passing of Raymond Paul Nikiforuk Sr. at the age of 73, at the U of A Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, on January 26, 2024.

Ray was born April 21, 1950 at the Notre Dame Hospital in North Battleford Saskatchewan to Elizabeth and Daniel Nikiforuk.  Living a very active life, Ray was a leader, a teacher, a horseman, and an entrepreneur.  Above all, as a father he was known for being a visionary, provoking thought in a kind, compassionate manner, instilling strong work ethic and community values in the family unit.  Always willing to lend a helping hand to neighbors, friends, and those less fortunate.

Raymond is survived by his Life Partner Ann; Brother Donald (Sharyn) Nikiforuk, Sister Joyce (Murray) Nelson, Uncle Adam Srayko, Aunt Minnie, Aunt Oraise, Aunt Olga and Uncle Peter. .  Ray and Ann together having 4 children; Raymond Jr. (Alaina), Daniel (Meghan), Natalie (Joseph), and Carlos (Helena), combined with 3 children from his first marriage to Kathleen Rhyason; Lethe (Troy), Christopher, and Samantha (Chris), and 2 Step Children; John (Jay) and Jacqueline (Ralph), their home was always a busy place.  Later joined by the apple of Ray’s existence; his grand-children; Randy, Beth, String-Fellow, Morgan, Caissa, Bryn, Maverick, Hanson, Robert and Eowynn, also survived by numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.

Predeceased by: Mother (Elizabeth Galloway nee:Srayko) and Father Daniel Nikiforuk.
