PETER RAYMOND NICHOLS

PETER RAYMOND NICHOLS

Peter was born on July 6th, 1941. He lived in several places, but Grand Forks and Christina Lake were always home. As a young couple, he and his wife moved here in 1973. With their six children, they lived the farming lifestyle he valued. He’d learned how to roof as a young man & continued to do so well into his years. His parents and sister lived at the Lake, as did Peter for many years. Pete lived very simply. He liked to work with his hands, was glad to put in a hard days work, and felt good when he could help another bring in the hay, build, or fix a car/truck. He enjoyed being outdoors: working with animals & watching the wildlife; having a quick dip in the river or boating, waterskiing, and canoeing on the lake; going for long walks & hikes up the mountain. He loved music, singing and dancing. He was generous with his time when it came to people, often gathering with family & friends. He was humble and modest in his way, and honestly outspoken with what he had to say. He’d share his opinions on history, religion, politics, and events of the day. He loved reminiscing & sharing stories of his many adventures.

Pete was big in character, with a rebellious spirit, quick wit, and sense of humour. He also had a ‘softness’ within his soul, a resiliency & integrity of his own, with which he lived his life. Pete passed away on April 21st, 2014 at 72 years of age. Peter had twelve grandchildren, a large extended family, and many loved & dear friends. His family has held a small gathering in his remembrance. We acknowledge there are many who loved & cared about Peter; and are thankful if you have touched his life, or he yours. We welcome you to remember him in your own time and honor him in your own way. Whether it is with a laugh or a tear, please remember Pete’s love is always near.
