Remembering Nick Nicholson

John Robert Nick Nicholson Saturday June 1st 2019

Posted on June 3, 2019June 3, 2019 by luc

It is with profound sadness that we say goodbye to John “Nick” Nicholson. Nick passed away peacefully in his 73rd year at the Brantford General Hospital on Saturday, June 1st 2019 surrounded by his loving family. Nick was born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia on December 3rd, 1946, where he spent his childhood. Nick was the beloved husband of Marian Nicholson for 37 years. Their love of travel led them on many adventures. Nick will be greatly missed by his step-children: Cindy Clark (Dave), Ron Thornberry, Brenda Thornberry, Barb Kinsella (Steve), Deb Thornberry, and Bill Thornberry. He will be loved always by his 13 grandchildren: Kelly, Cheryl, Kyle, Patrick, Shawna, Avalon, Shay, Kaitlyn, Rachel, Doug, Jake, Aiden, Noah, and 10 great grandchildren. Nick is predeceased by his parents, John and Hazel Nicholson. Nick is survived by his loving sister Ann Rich, nieces and nephew Kathy, Gwen, Andrew and their families. He served in the military and was a Sergeant in the Reserves.

Nick was a kind and generous neighbour, respected member of the community and was always willing to lend a hand to his family and friends. He worked as a Safety Manager at Airways Transit for 33 years and was a recognized life member of the Hamilton/Niagara Chapter of the Fleet Safety Council from 1988-2017. A special thank you for the compassion of the Palliative Care Team at the Brantford General Hospital.

A celebration of his life will take place on Sunday, June 9th, 2019 at the Dunsdon Legion Branch 461, 9 Tollgate Road, Brantford from 1 – 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

We will miss you Nick!
