A Memorial Service for Nicholas Eli Antonovich, 66, of Bismarck ND, formerly of Gilbert, will be 6:30pm Monday at Ziemer-Moeglein-Shatava Funeral Home in Gilbert. Friends may gather at 5pm until the time of service. Following the service, a gathering with a potluck lunch will take place at the Dugout Bar in Gilbert. Nick died Monday, January 23, 2017 at Sanford Medical Center in Bismarck, North Dakota. He was born April 23, 1950 in Grand Rapids, Minnesota to Eli and Eleanore (Koppy) Antonovich. He was raised in Calumet, MN and was a graduate of Greenway High School. He later served our country in the US Army. Nick was very involved in youth sports and was the “go-to” guy if anyone needed something repaired. He enjoyed a good debate and was known to have had many arguments in his days; but in his opinion, he never lost one. But most of all, he cherished his family and they meant the world to him. He is survived by his wife, Sue; sons: Justin (Crystal) Antonovich, Nicholas (Amanda) Skrbec and Tate Antonovich; grandsons: Cooper and Parker; brothers: Mike (Sandy) Antonovich and Lyle Antonovich; several half-siblings; his mother-in-law, Barb Skrbec; special niece, Jamie (Dean) Lindvall; special friend, John Nartnik; many other family and friends also survive. He is preceded in death by his parents, Eli and Eleanore.
