Sad News to Report…

Dear Friends and Parishioners of Ascension Memorial Church,

It is with sadness and regret that I share news of the death of Andrew “Drew” Nikas, son of Joanne Brown, younger brother of Randall Nikas and Leigh Flaherty, brother-in-law of Ted Flaherty, nephew of Marcia Inman.  Drew grew up in Ipswich, lived most of his life here, is father to four sons and will be truly missed by his many friends and family.

Calling hours will be held at Morris Funeral Home this Friday evening, most likely from 5 to 7PM.  A memorial service for Drew will be held at Ascension Memorial Church this Saturday, February 18th at 2PM with reception following in St. Matthew’s Parlor.

Please hold in your thoughts and prayers Drew’s many family members.

God’s peace,
