Passing of UA Member Randy Nichols 
May 2, 2017  

Randy Eldon Nichols
Aged 64 years of Moose Jaw, SK, passed away on Sunday, February 26, 2017 surrounded by family, after a courageous 2 1/2 year battle with cancer. Randy was born in Moose Jaw to Eldon and Betty (Busch) Nichols on August 27, 1952. He received his education at Riverview Collegiate, and went on to earn his Plumbing/Pipefitting ticket through UA Local 179. Randy worked throughout Saskatchewan on many industrial sites, while raising a family in Moose Jaw. He was elected Business Manager for the Local 2004-2010 and finished his 45 year career back on the tools in 2014. Randy's true passion was designing and building custom homes, spending countless hours drawing house plans, building and finishing houses. He enjoyed fishing, travelling, reading, discussing politics and spending time with his grandchildren. He was extremely proud of his sons, Shae and Jerrod. Randy was predeceased by his father, Eldon; and brother-in-law, Wayne Brown. Randy will be remembered by his wife of 18 years, Elaine; his sons, Shae (Tamra) and Jerrod (Kirsten); and the mother of his sons, Jackie; Elaine's daughters, Nicole (Derek) and Jaclyne; grandchildren: Olivia, Kael, Ava, Mila, Tosh, Hudson, Archer and Evander; mother, Betty; sister Cindy (Brian); brother, Rick (Bonnie); mother-in-law, Mildred; in- laws, Rita (Len) and Charmaine (Mike); as well as numerous other family members and friends. The Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home with Adam Driscoll officiating. Flowers are gratefully declined.
