Robert Nicholas “Nick” Wukoson, 73, of Lee County, GA, went home to the Lord Saturday, October 2nd, 2021, in Albany, GA.
Born in McKeesport, PA, Nick lived most of his life in Central Florida, graduating USF. He joined Eckerd Drugs and raised two beautiful children with his first wife, Carolyn. Later divorced, he then married Rita. Transferring with Eckerd they then moved to Birmingham, AL where they welcomed a new Wukoson—his third beautiful child. From there the family followed his work to Atlanta, GA and then on to Leesburg, GA in 2005.
Nick was an avid hunter and enjoyed fast cars, baseball and—especially over the past few years—music, reading and precious time spent with family and friends.
Nick never faced a battle he could not win. He would always just work harder. Always smiling, laughing, and loving until the end of his journey, when the Lord Who sees all things spoke, “Enough my Son, come home” and our beautiful Nick literally raced into heaven.
He was preceded in death by his parents George and Helen Wukoson, his sister June Turner and her husband John, and his niece Lori Wukoson Wozniak.
He is survived by his wife, Rita Wukoson, daughter Kelly Ann Bradley and her husband Richard, sons Nicholas Wukoson and Alexander Wukoson, brother David Wukoson and his wife Sue, sister Saundra Wukoson Wozniak, grandchildren Ryan Bradley, Taylor Bradley, Reagan Wukoson, Jack Wukoson, nephew and godson Sean Turner and his wife Teri, nephew George Wukoson and his wife Kristen, niece Sarah Wukoson, and his loving cousins.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests either:
Fruit or healthy snack basket to the staff at Phoebe North, 2 West, ICU
A monetary gift to Brook’s Rehabilitation Hospital, Stroke Unit, Jacksonville, FL in memory of Robert Nicholas Wukoson, stroke patient, 2016.
There will be a Celebration of Life Zoom meeting, date to be determined. Links will be forwarded to all.
