Nick N. Konkin

October 11, 1919 – October 25, 2015


It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Nick N. Konkin of Brilliant BC on October 25, 2015. He is survived by his wife Ann, daughters Lillian Konkin, Sandra Konkin (Bernie), Lisa Reith (John), 9 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his daughter Julie and his older brother and sister, Pete and Helen.


Nick lived a long and storied life. He had the pleasure of celebrating his 96th birthday a few weeks ago, surrounded by his family, whom he loved dearly. Over the course of his life he was a carpenter, a beekeeper, an orchardist but above all a singer. Nick’s strong tenor voice will be missed by all.


The family would like to thank Dr. Ankenbauer for his attentive care, the doctors and nursing staff at the Trail hospital and for all the years of help from the Castlegar home support team. We won’t forget these ‘good women’.


Funeral service will be held at the Brilliant Cultural Centre on Monday, November 2, 2015 at 10 am. Internment and luncheon to follow.
