It is with great sadness I announce the passing of my beloved husband & friend, Nic Wales. Nic leaves to mourn his wife Mieke, sister-in-law Geertje, nephew Mark Van Eeken (Abi), his very special sister-cousin Pat Radcliffe (Grant), Kelsey, Brent (Emily), Mason (Laura), Connor (Riley), Daniel (Cass) as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins & very good friends.

Nic was a very dedicated plasma & platelet donor with over 1500 donations at Canadian Blood Services.

He will be sorely missed by many. Cremation has taken place. Nic has requested no service be held but would like you to consider a blood donation.

  1. I knew Nic before I met my husband (1971). Nic was like a big brother to me over the years. When I needed advise or ideas I would talk to Nic. Had many an evening with Nic and Mieke that wouldn’t end till breakfast most of time. The laughter we shared and time listening to records, building trenches, fixing RV’s. The list goes on. Rest in peace dear friend. Now you and Lloyd can talk your ears off. My heart is heavy right now but I know you are in a better place.

  2. A beautiful person, a strong force, always there and enjoying life and nature. My condolences for Mieke, Pat and Brent, Mark and Abi and your close family. Nic will be missed so much. I remember his warmth, and his concern for all persons. My last hug Nic!

  3. Such a beautifull picture of Nic. And it is with such great sorrow that we think of his passing. To Peter, Nic was a friend and father-figure, to whom he loved talking to, discussing live and asking him for advice. And our children will always remember their great, friendly, chocolate-drinking uncle (who was so cool for having al kinds of objects that would constantly surprise their minds).
    Our warm condolences to Mieke and all Nic’s dear family and friends. He truly will be missed so much. With love.

  4. Beste tante Mieke.
    We willen je condoleren met het overlijden van oom Nic. Wat is het toch snel gegaan. Nu moet je alleen verder. We willen je veel sterkte wensen in deze moeilijke tijd. Liefs Ronald en Geertje

  5. As a seventeen year old girl I met my uncle Nic for the first time in Edmonton 1981. From an earlier visit in Kampen I have no memory. He impressed me with his length and beard. Years and several visits later he was my uncle who knew áll about Canada, life, nature, animals and the sky. A kind man, also for having all Mieke’s family in his house, barbecueing, driving us, sharing his nice family with us and having a great time together. Thank you for that Nic.
    My sincere condolences for Mieke, family and friends. I will never forget my big, nice, Canadian uncle.

  6. Nic, de oom die ik allen maar kende van 1 foto en de verhalen, maar die ik gelukkig in 2019 live heb mogen meemaken toen ik een paar weken met Erika bij jullie in Canada was. Een lieve rustige man die alles wist wat we vroegen en er voor zorgde als we thuis waren dat meteen het vuur aan was bij het gezellige zitje! Zo kan en wil ik Nic herinneren en heel veel sterkte wensen aan Mieke en iedereen die hem lief was. Warme knuffel.

  7. In 2005 I met Nic for the first time. A big, impressive man who actually always knew the answers to questions you had, and even knew how to name the years. During the trips through Canada that we were allowed to undertake together with Nic, among others, I experienced him as a perfect guide.
    Nothing was too crazy, driving to the north to visit the tip of Alaska or driving behind the convoy with a van that was used as an excursion vehicle. Grateful to have known Nic, a nice, warm man to talk, and listen to.
    My sincere condolences for Mieke and all the family and friends.
    Nic, Rest in peace.
