Nicholas Joseph Balla - 12/08/2006
1918-2006 Died peacefully at home surrounded by his family. Nick’s lifelong passion for Canada began as a young boy when he immigrated here from Hungary. Despite the challenges of building a life in a strange new country, Nick grew to love his new home and became committed to a vision of Canada based on equality, diversity and active citizenship which he passed down to his family throughout the generations. As a prolific filmmaker with the National Film Board, Nick was able to share his passion for this beautiful country not only with Canadians, but with people around the world. His belief in social justice prompted him to make films that challenged the status quo and stimulated the active exchange of ideas. Nick felt strongly that his responsibility as a filmmaker was to create accessible and meaningful documentaries about the issues facing us both nationally and globally and about the individuals who have contributed to the Canadian mosaic. His belief that individual achievement, innovation and creativity must be in service of a larger message led him to avoid the limelight and to an intolerance of ego-driven projects. As a film executive in the latter part of his career, Nick encouraged the achievements of his friends and colleagues through mentoring, facilitation and championing of their efforts. Perhaps Nick’s most deeply held value was the need to live respectfully and responsibly in relation to each other and to the natural world. His love of nature was demonstrated by his nurture of the land and all living things. Much to the joy of his grandchildren, he raised orphaned ducklings and fed the chickadees that would perch trustingly in his hands. He was concerned with global issues and the environment, and, with his wife Lillian, created a self-sufficient lifestyle during retirement that would offer security and balance for his family. Ultimately, Nick felt that his greatest contribution was his family. His great and abiding passion for his wife Lillian continued unabated for over 64 years. His gentleness and compassion were evident in his loving commitment to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren with whom he was always willing to share his knowledge and experience. He encouraged them to explore and question the world around them, and to embrace his deep concern for the dignity and well-being of all people. He was happiest when surrounded by his large and boisterous family, often bragging that he had ‘started it all’. He will be greatly missed by all those whose lives he touched. Every time we see his rainbow in the sky, we will think of him and smile. Lillian and the family would like to thank: the neighbours who welcomed them and made them feel at home in the community; Nora, their family physician, for her dedication and nurturing care; Leonida and all the other health care workers that made his final days so peaceful and gave the family such comfort; Raymond and Cynthia who have made such a difference in Nick and Lillian’s lives in recent years and who have become a part of the family; and all the people who have shared their lives over the years. A private reception will he held for close friends and family. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (959 Wellington Street W, Ottawa ON K1Y 2X5; ph: (613) 725-0202).
