M. Nicolaos Paradisis

It is with profound sadness and with no words to describe the depth of our grief, that we announce the premature passing of Nicolaos/Nick Paradisis, on July 18, 2023, at the age of

A beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend, Nick leaves behind his loving wife Angelique/Angela, his children Philip and Stella, his brothers George and Dimitrios/Jim and his grandchildren Serena and Kieran.

Born in the beautiful island of Chios, Greece, Nick immigrated to Canada with his family in 1959. A brilliant mind, with an impressive memory and an outstanding ability to write, he was a brilliant student from elementary to graduate school. Above all he was generous and tolerant to a fault, very patient, sensitive, calm, kind hearted, loving and a truly genuine and loving human being, and his depth of character left a lasting impact on all who knew him.

Nick pursued his passion in economics at McGill university, where he honed his talents and embarked on a highly successful career as an excellent economist. His work took him to
numerous countries across Europe, Dubai, the Middle East and Greece. In the last years of his career, he dedicated over two decades to working with native communities in northern
Quebec and Labrador, Canada.

Devoted to serving the community, Nick went above and beyond his regular workdays and hours to provide the best services to those in need. His dedication and love for the work earned him immense respect and admiration from the native communities he served, as well as from professionals in federal and provincial governments.

Despite the many challenges life presented to him, Nick’s generous spirit remained unshaken. He never lost his sense of humour, his deep regard for fellow human beings, and, above all, his humanity. His absence leaves an irreplaceable void, but he will forever live on in our hearts and psyches.

In this time of deep grief, let us remember the beautiful life he lived, the wonderful, authentic person he was, and find solace in the cherished memories we shared with him.
Friends are welcome to attend visitation on Tuesday, July 25, from 5pm-9pm and Wednesday, July 26, from 10-10:45am at the funeral home.

The funeral service will be at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church, at 11:15am. Light food, traditional cookies, coffee and brandy will be served at the hall-dining
area of the funeral home after the cemetery.
The Church is on 20 Brunswick Blvd, Dollard-Des Ormeaux, QC. H9B 2N8

    I am heartbroken for my dear friend Angela who I know is bereft. It is unspeakably sad for her to lose the love of her life far far too soon. Rest in Peace Nick.

    What sad a shocking news to hear of the passing of Nick. He was a true gentleman, in all respects. A very bright and intelligent person who devoted many years of faithful services to the Cree Communities in Eeyou Istchee. I knew Nick for a brief period when our paths crossed due to common client work. He was such a sweet and honest person, always had a smile and was always there to listen to your concerns. Nick is one person that has marked my life with great thoughts. A wonderful human being who will be dearly missed. My condolences to his entire family, including his family and friends within the Ouje-Bougoumou Cree Nation. May his soul rest eternally.

    I am very sorry to hear this news. I had the opportunity to work with Nick while he was working in Labrador and his dedication to the role and his humour were admirable. My sincere condolences to his family.

    I’m so sorry to hear we’ve lost Nick. I worked with Nick a great deal while he was working for Mushuau Innu First Nation. He will really be missed. My condolences to Nick’s family, MIFN, and everyone around him.

    Sending my deep condolences to the family of Nick Paradisis. He was indeed the gentleman I knew him as mentioned in his eulogy, kind, gentle and caring. I worked with Nick closely in Finance for 6 years, he was my greatest mentor. I knew him outside of work. He was a great friend. I also went snowmobiling with him and had to drag him home because his snowmobile broke down.

    I left the organization I worked and he left 2 years after me. I never got a chance to say goodbye. He was dearly missed. Thank you for sharing Nick with us in Ouje-Bougoumou. He was also under my leadership as Chief in my community and trusted in his service to my community. I thank him for his service to us and was a friend to many of our people. Meegwetch Nick Kabetch wiijiihiiyatch! Jisache-dinan
