It is with horrible, horrendous, terrible, tremendous broken hearts that we, the parents of Nicholas Daniel Worthington announce the sad and sudden passing of our son on September 4, 2020 at the Strait Richmond Hospital. Nicholas was born on March 30th, 2014 at the Glace Bay General Hospital to his proud parents, Lindsey Worthington and Stephen Brezuk. Among his parents Nicholas will be sadly missed by his little sister, Lilah who loved her brother so much and always looked out for him, she was her brother’s keeper and misses him dreadfully. Nicholas is survived by his grandparents, Nanny Betty Campbell, Grampy Bob Worthington and Nana Michelle Brezuk, Grampy Wayne Caines, great grandmother, Linda Brezuk and great grandmother, Margie Caines. Nicholas had many aunts and uncles who will forever miss him, Nicole Brezuk, Amanda Worthington (Jeff), Jennifer Worthington (Mark), Lacey Worthington, Robert Worthington (Jenn), Ashley Worthington (Travis) and Kelsey Worthington (Brandon). Nicholas will also be missed by all his great aunts and uncles and extended families. Nicholas loved spending time and playing with his family he’ll be sadly missed by cousins ,Aleigha, Jaelynn, Ethan, Sadie, Syd, Lucas, Chase, Kurt, Baby Victoria, Rebecca, Madison, and Brooklyn. Nicholas was a boy who loved everything and everyone, you couldn’t take him anywhere without him waving or saying hello. Nicholas loved playing with his sister and going for rides on his scooter while he raced his mommy. Nicholas loved hanging out with his daddy and going in his truck for pizza, he was his #1 fan. He also loved spending nights with his Nana, he loved to visit family and also loved to reenact stories like Goldilocks. He was a child who was adored everywhere he went, his smile would light up a room and he had an even more infectious laugh. Nicholas loved to paint, he loved to read, he loved to run, he loved walks and jumping on his trampoline, Nicholas loved swimming he was a fearless little boy. Nicholas also absolutely loved trains! Thomas the tank engine was his best bud but anything to do with trains just amazed this little guy. Nicholas was so strong and brave, he had to beat some odds when diagnosed with Autism in 2017 and ulcerative colitis in 2018. Nicholas amazed everyone with the fight he had in him, with the help of the teams we’ve worked with through the years I can genuinely say Nicholas loved each one of you and if it weren’t for people like you we may never have had the chance to hear our boy tell us he loves us. Thanks to Ashley McNamera-NSECIS and his EIBI team Britney, Tim and Ian.
