David Nicklen

September 27, 1941 - September 9, 2013


It brings great sadness to announce the loss of David Nicklen who passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family and  friends following a courageous journey with leukemia. He is survived by his wife Ronda, his children Aaron (Mark), Paul (Cristina), Kristy (Dan) Kelsey (Kyle) and grandchildren Kharma, Presely,  Quinlan, and Charlie. David is survived by his 97 year old Mother Frances, brother  Norman and sisters Olive, Irene, Beth and Darlene. The family would like to thank all of the outstanding staff at the Cowichan General  Hospital and especially Dr. Rachael Martin who treated David with care and compassion. There will be a celebration of life to honour David at the H.W. Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre at 5285 Polkey Rd. in Duncan on Sunday,  September 15, 2013 at 2PM.  In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cowichan hospital would be appreciated. The hospital Foundation website is www.cdhfoundation.org/donations.shtml . We cherish David and we are grateful for his love and influence in our lives now and forever.
