Howard Bruce Nichol

April 23, 1927 – December 30, 2015

We are sad to announce the passing of Howard Bruce Nichol on December 30, 2015 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox.

Howard was predeceased by his wife Olive Nichol and former spouse Josie Donaldson. He is survived by Randy and Beth Nichol, Brock and Lynn Nichol and Teri Nichol; his grandchildren Joel and Kristal Nichol, Jenna Brown, Nathan Ingram, Zachary Nichol, Chris and Ashley Plamondon and great granddaughter Lexi Rose Nichol.

Howard was the last member of a large family who homesteaded over 100 years near Bagot, Manitoba. He married and moved to Edmonton to work, helped raise his family and after the sudden death of his wife moved to the Comox Valley. He enjoyed 17 happy years with Josie Donaldson and her family Miles and Elaine, Patti and David. He had a passion to play golf and kept up a good game even at 88.

If friends so wish, a donation in Howard’s name to the Lung Foundation of Canada would be appreciated.
