Donnie Nicholson beloved son of Nick and Jo’Ann of Barriere, B.C. passed away tragically on Friday, January 25, 2013 at the age of 24 years.

 Donnie was born in McBride, B.C. and relocated with his family to Barriere where he was raised with his sister. Donnie was a straight A student in highschool finishing a year ahead of schedule. After highschool he went to college to get his Red Seal ticket as a Journeynman plumber.

 The family would like to honor and give a special thanks to all the amazing people who stepped forward during this difficult time helping our family cope with the loss of Donnie and the huge impact it has left.
