Obituary for Nicholas P. Kafcas

Nicholas P. Kafcas of Waterford, died September 1, 2021. He was 65 years old. Nick was born October 6, 1955 in Detroit, Michigan to Nicholas and Mary (nee Mallas) Kafcas.

One of the most resilient people we know and armed with a smile and joy, Nick never gave up! Nick had a consummate love of learning and went back to school a bit later in life to earn an Associate’s Degree in Counseling from Oakland Community College. Through his degree, Nick was able to combine his personal experiences and passion of helping others into a rewarding career as a counselor at Common Ground and Easter Seals. He was always compassionate, caring and always happy to give more of his time and support to others, especially to those in need. Nick was a man of many talents and interests. His other passions included history and music! If he wasn’t engulfed in history articles or books he could be found strumming one of his guitars or listening to his favorite artists.

One of Nick’s greatest joys was his family! Though the family was spread out, distance didn’t get in the way of how important family was to Nick. He was immensely proud of his children Nicholas and Alyssa and could always be heard telling someone about the paths they were blazing. With his devoted partner Angela by his side, he was the rock of his family with his bountiful love radiating to his extended family as well, especially Gina. Nick was the ever plucky younger brother to Magda and Ernest always up to something with a wink and a wry smile (or clever one-liner). In the words of Irving Berlin, “the song is ended, but the melody lingers on.”

Nick was preceded in death by his father, Nicholas Kafcas, his mother Mary Greenwood and stepfather, Frank Greenwood He is survived by his devoted partner of over 30 years Angella Cardello, his two children, Nicholas and Alyssa, his sister Magda (Theodore) Moss his brother Ernest (Robbie) Kafcas, and several cousins, nieces, Alexandra (Kyle) Patton and Jaime (Mick) Cowper and nephew, Nicholas (Jennifer) Kafcas. Nick is also survived by Angella’s family, Gina Envall, Briana Stachowski, and Nicole Cardello.

A Funeral Service will be held at Christ Church Cranbrook, 470 Church Road, Bloomfield Hills, Monday, September 13th, 2021 at 11am.
