Events

Nicky M. Tsacrios, Jr. "Dr. Nick" passed away at age 72 while recovering from a recent illness at the home of his daughters In Tyler, Texas on March 24, 2019. He was born on December 4th, 1946 in Panama City, Florida, of the late Nicky M. Tsacrios, Sr. and Edna M. (Blackstone) Tsacrios.
Dr. Nick grew up in Live Oak, Florida and spent his childhood exploring the springs and rivers of North Florida. He was a 1964 Graduate of Suwannee High School in Live Oak. He received his Undergraduate Degree in Zoology in 1968 and his Doctorate of Medicine in 1972 from the University of Florida in Gainesville. Go Gators!
A large portion of Nicky's life was dedicated to working with the underserved populations of rural America. Before moving to West Virginia he was the attending physician for pediatric outpatient clinics for the Florida Department of Public Health, where his services extended to several counties.
From 1979 to 1991 Dr Nick was the Medical Director of the New Vrindaban Community Clinic in Limestone, West Virginia. The clinic served local workers and patients without insurance as well as community members. He worked with the Marshall County Health Department to offer immunization clinics and health screenings, and had a walk-in clinic for acute issues or injuries of adult and pediatric populations.
Nicky had a lifetime interest in herbs and plants and became an expert on West Virginia wildflowers and other native plants. He offered community herbal walks where he educated many about a variety of medicinal plants found among the West Virginia hillsides. ? Following in the footsteps of his father, Nicky became a Florida Gator fan at a very young age. They spent many exciting hours cheering for their team in "The Swamp". Later in life, Nick inspired his family as well as numerous others to be physically active at any age just through his exuberance for athletics.
Like the old church stained glass windows he loved to restore from Cameron to Steubenville, Nick was multi-faceted. He enjoyed being featured as an artist in the West Virginia's Premier Tamarack Artisan Center for his southern flair in stained glass and participating in craft fairs throughout the area.
He is survived by his four daughters: Morgen Tsacrios, Arunditi Xantus, Rosa Tsacrios, Nika Tsacrios, his son Ahren Tsacrios, his three stepchildren Daria Gere, Puri Gere, and Lila Saint-Denis, his sisters Joanna Millinor of Wimberly, TX and Coula Freeman of Lawrenceville, GA, his grandchildren Chloe, Gryphon, and Forest Tsacrios, Jayde Green, Frantz and Niko Xantus, Orion and Ruby Saint Buzon, Julian and Ani Gere-Miller, and numerous wonderful nieces and nephews.
May his legacy as an amazing father, physician, artist, and all-around humanitarian live on in our hearts forever.
Plans for a Memorial Gathering have been made for June 2019 at his home in Limestone, WV. Condolences can be sent to the family at stewartfamilyfuneralhome.com

What an amazing life and inspiration. Reading about Dr. Nick, I can almost hear, "well done, my good and faithful servant."
