Obituary of Nicholas Stuber

Please share a memory of Nicholas to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Nicholas was born in Budapest, Hungary. He came to Montreal, Canada in 1957, where he met his wife, Livia, who also came from Hungary. While in Montreal, Nicholas went to night school and earned his Bachelor of Commerce Degree from Sir George Williams University (now Concordia University).


He started his career as an accountant, but after a few years, he and Livia moved to London, UK, where he switched to selling business machines. He was successful in this field, eventually starting his own business. He, together with Livia, ran the business for many years in the UK. During that time, he also enjoyed, with Livia and their two children, winter holidays skiing in Europe and summer holidays visiting family in Montreal.


In the early 1980s, Nicholas moved to Calgary, where he and Livia switched to the food service industry. They began operating a number of shops in shopping centre food courts in Calgary. After expanding this business over a number of years, Nicholas and Livia eventually sold and Nicholas joined Canadian Business Brokers as a business broker. He ultimately became the President of Canadian Business Brokers.


In 1995, Nicholas and Livia built a home in Invermere, BC, where they spent weekends skiing in the winter and boating on the lake in the summer. In 2010, after retiring (for the most part), they made Invermere their full-time home.


Nicholas enjoyed various activities such as skiing, tennis, golf, playing games, particularly playing bridge, cooking, entertaining and dining out. He loved spending time with family. He also loved traveling, socializing and engaging in conversation with anyone and everyone.


Sadly, he suffered with deteriorating health over the last few years. Fortunately, Livia was able to continue to care for him. At the end, he passed away peacefully, surrounded by his closest family.


Nicholas lived a full life and was loved by many. He will be very much missed by Livia; his children, Ron (Mel) and Larissa; his grandchildren, Anna, Matt and Megan; and family and friends from around the world.
