Upitis, Nicholas-

Nick Upitis died peacefully on September 17, 2019 at his home surrounded
by his family. Born in Latvia and lived briefly in Germany before fleeing
to Canada during World War II. Nick was a loving, hard-working, loyal,
generous and courageous man. Survived by his wife Barbara, daughter
Noella (Keith) Reynolds, grandchildren Noah (Siobhan) and Max and
Barbara’s family.

Nick loved life. He enjoyed his work in sales for Superior Control
Products and travelled extensively throughout Ontario. Many of his
customers became long-time friends. One of Nick’s favourite places was
Miller Lake on the Bruce Peninsula, where he spent many happy summers with
his family and friends.

We are grateful to many people for their kindness during these last number
of months. A special thank you to Hospice Wellington, especially to
Louise for her exceptional nursing care and compassion. Friends and
neighbours at Mini Lakes have meant a great deal as well.

Friends are invited to come meet the family at Gilbert MacIntyre and Son
Funeral Home, Hart Chapel, 1099 Gordon St, Guelph, on Friday September 20,
2019 from 6-8 p.m. A celebration of Nick’s life will take place at the
Salvation Army Citadel, 1320 Gordon St, Guelph, on Saturday September 21
at 11 a.m. Private family interment will take place at a later time. In
lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be
appreciated by the family. Donation cards are available at the funeral
home (519-821-5077) or online at

I was very young working at Bobcaygeon Home Hardware when I met Nick, at that time he was working for GreenCross. I’ve always dealt with nick for the past 35 years and even recently he came by the store and showed me copy of a purchase order I did with him when I was 18. Amazing man, always smiling and very professional. I will miss him dearly as so many other that he’s come to know will.

My father, Beresford (Berry) Watt was one of Nick's dearest old friends and co workers from Green Cross Products. They knew each other since 1964 and even vacationed together. After my father passed away in 2008, Nick continued to visit us and share his Latvian roots. He would treat us to the Latvian Cultural Centre's feasts. My wife, Jane and I and our four children learned about the special layer cake from him! Way back in 1987, when I was working in Minden, Nick was on the road and came and took me out to lunch. I still have fond memories of that day. Nick was such a friendly man to all. He will be missed.
