Nolan Michael “Misha” Saliken
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Nolan Michael “Misha” Saliken on Friday. July 5, 2013 at the age of 24 years in Robson, BC.
Born in Nelson and raised in Castlegar BC, Misha experienced many activities as a child, snowboarding, hockey, baseball, wake-boarding and swim club to name a few, plus music interests such as piano and drums. But his main passion was dirt bikes and snowmobiles, where he defined the word “fearless”. He earned his journeyman certificate as an electrician through Selkirk College, and worked at various projects in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan with the IBEW. Although he left us too soon, Misha’s wonderful smile, infectious laugh and electric personality will leave a legacy of love and respect that will be carried forward by family and a large circle of friends forever.
Born on July 31, 1988 and predeceased by his grandparents, Misha is survived by parents Peter and Sarah of Raspberry, sister Reena, girlfriend Chelsea Watkin, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Funeral services were held at the Brilliant Cultural Centre on Friday, July 12, 2013, with burial at Ootischenia cemetery under the care of Castlegar Funeral Chapel.
