It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden but peaceful passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather.

Nicu Gheorghe Purcãrenau went quietly into the Lord’s presence on February 20, 2009 at age 61 years. He was born April 13, 1947 in Bralia, Romania.

Nicu is survived by his wife Mandita; his children; Ema (Tica), Aneta (Mishu), Cornelia and Estera (Sorin); grandchildren: Andrei, Tabitha, Michael, Rebeckah, Naomi, Lavinia, Ligia, Acsah, Louisa, Junior, Joseph and Josiah.

Nicu and Mandita were members of the Holy Mountain Romanian Church, Chilliwack. He will be best remembered for his love of the Lord, his family and his grandchildren.

He loved fishing and playing his accordion and helping others. The youth of the congregation all benefited from his prayers.

Nicu and Mandita were approaching 44 years of marriage. He was as enchanted with his beloved wife now as he was when they first met. She is the woman of his dreams. He will be sorely missed.

Services will be held on Thursday, February 26, 2009 beginning with a visitation at 9:00 am. from the Chapel at Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave.

Funeral Service will follow at 11:00 pm. Interment in Chilliwack Cemetery.
