The eldest son of Archpriest Anatoly and Matushka Irene Trepatschko, the future Fr. Nicholas was born on April 23, 1965, and had a fervent love for the divine services. He sang on the kliros from the age of three, and as an adult conducted the choir.
Fr. Nicholas is survived by his brother – Priest John Trepatschko (parish rector; Matushka Nina and their children).
The funeral was held on Friday, November 4, in the above-named church.
Memory Eternal to the newly reposed Protodeacon Nicholas!
