1952 – 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Brian Nitchie on April 1, 2016 in Burton, BC. Born in Armstrong, April 10, 1952. He is survived by his sons: Ryan (Tami) Nitchie and their children Kaia and Abby, Kody (Amanda) Nitchie and their children Georgia, Logan, Miller; his loving wife of 13 years Christine Murray and her children: Ray, Justin, and Sarah, and grandson Joey. He is also survived by his two brothers: Bob (Marylee) and Terry (Sue) as well as many nieces and nephews.

Brian spent most of his life in the Armstrong area, just recently moving to Burton, BC. He enjoyed and spent many years as an auto mechanic, then moving into the renovation business which he thrived at. He was the ultimate handyman and transformed many homes. With a unique sense of humour and an infectious laugh, Brian was very generous and quick to lend a helping hand. He had a passion for model railroads, local history, and had a special love for his dog, Kemo (his quading pal). He also had a great love for the outdoors and spent several years living “off the grid”.

A Funeral Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, April 8, 2016 at the Armstrong Bible Chapel (2145 Rosedale Avenue, Armstrong, BC). Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at
