Nicholas P. Wishlow

April 30, 1923 – July 26, 2011

Passed away suddenly at his

home in Victoria, B.C., on July 26, 2011, at the age of 88.  Nick was born April 30, 1923, in Winlaw, B.C., the second child of Dora and Peter Wishlow.  Pre-deceased by his brothers Fred Chursinoff (1980), George P. Wishlow (1999) and his wife, Florence Wishlow (nee Verigin) (2006).


He is survived by his 2 children Thomas Wishlow (Carol), and Tanis Wall (John).  His 5 grand-children, Genneine Mackenzie (Scott), Tamara Gritchin (Wayne), Cameron Galbraith (Vanessa), Karmen Goddard (Greg) and Kristen Wall (Dave).  His 7

great-grandchildren, Emily, Sophia, Kaleb, Danica, Jordan, Lexa and Kyla.


Nick will be remembered best for his wisdom and positive spirit.  He loved sitting outdoors and being one with nature.  He always made an attempt to keep in touch with all his family and friends.  His passions were woodworking, gardening, and travels with his wife, Florence.  He was a wonderful companion, a great father

and the “Best” Deda.  He will be greatly missed!


Family graveside service will be held at a later date at the Ootischenia cemetary in Castlegar where Nick and Florence’s 

ashes will be laid to rest together.
