Nicholas George Yach, 65, passed away Wednesday, January 12, 2022 after battling pancreatic cancer for nearly four years. He was born on October 28th, 1956 a block from Pulaski Park on the Northside of Chicago.
On February 4th, 1978 he married Susan Gurak and together they raised three children in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. Nicholas was a hardworking, reliable husband and father, always providing for his family. Though he was a man of few words he had a slapstick sense of
humor, a tender heart and a faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. In his youth, he was captain of the wrestling team, a groovy music fanatic who completed 14 roundtrips to Wisconsin on a no speed bicycle. Nicholas went on to work as a truck driver, crane operator and IT professional.
Never to take a hobby lightly, Nicholas was passionate about bowling, fishing, classic movies, all things technology, and the Chicago Bears. Most will remember him as an animal lover, Trekkie and always politically passionate.
He leaves behind his beloved wife, Susan Yach, three adoring children Timothy Paul Yach (Tracy Jean Yach), Jason William Yach (Jennifer Kim Yach), and Jennifer Lauren Yach; seven beautiful grandchildren Adelyn Mae Yach (10), Caleb Timothy Yach (8), Carson Finley Yach (6),
Harrison Nicholas Yach (4), Brixton Emmett Yach (4), Gwendolyn Rose Yach (2), and Beckett James Yach (1); and his two sweet sisters, Anne Marie Voegeli (Derick Walter Voegeli) and Charlene Therese Ramirez.
He is preceded in death by his mother Geraldine Victoria Yach, his father Stanley Anthony Yach, and his older brother Stanley Glen Yach.
The visitation will be held at Highpoint Church Wheaton 1310 N Main Street, Wheaton, IL 60187 on Saturday, January 22nd, from 10:30-11:30 am with service to follow at 11:30 am.
