Randy Carl Nickerson
Randy Carl Nickerson of Port Hardy/Kamloops BC lost his battle with cancer on March 18, 2008 at the age of 47.
He is survived by his loving wife Patricia Nickerson; children Katie and Rachel of Nanaimo BC, James of Red Deer Alberta, Dee of Toronto Ontario, and Joseph of Brooks Alberta; grandchildren Gabriel (James) and Rachel due in June; parents Betty and Ed McIntyre of Kamloops BC; siblings Chris, Barb (Marty) and Victor (Cathie) Nickerson of Kamloops, Trista (Grant) Williamson, and Tianna (Ryan) Doyle of Port Hardy; and many other relatives, Thor, Troy, Talaina, Teagan, Stephanie, Breanna and Ashley of Kamloops; Brendan, Sydney, Tierra, and Noah of Port Hardy; Chantelle of Red Deer; and Tia Nickerson of Campbell River BC.
Predeceased by his father Carl Harvard Nickerson.
Born in Nelson BC, Randy grew up in the small towns of Vancouver Island, southern BC and Alberta. He then became an honest, generous friend and father. A hard working logger on Vancouver Island and coastal mainland. After a logging injury, he chose to stay in the logging industry, hauling logs, Super B, in central Alberta.
Randy loved to make people laugh and his sense of humour will surely be missed.
A special thanks to David and the staff of Kamloops Hospice for trying to make his last hours comfortable; Dr. Avanessian and staff of the Kamloops Cancer Clinic;
Dr. Burris who was always there to help; and to Dr. Michael Barnett and the staff at the Bone Marrow Transplant ward of the Jim Pattison Pavilion in Vancouver.
A Celebration of Randy’s life was held at 3:00 pm on Saturday, March 22, 2008 at the Seagate Wharf in Port Hardy BC.
Randy’s family would appreciate if memorial donations were made to your local Hospice.
