Nick Chobotar

November 5, 1937 – April 25, 2019
fter a valiant struggle with Alzheimer’s and at the end with stomach cancer our dear Nick is now at peace.

We moved to Victoria in 2015 but Nick never forgot his dear friends in Cranbrook, both in the R.C.M.P and those in hockey, either coaching the little guys or refereeing the seniors. One of his favorite jobs was as the Mall Santa which he did for many years.

Left to mourn are his wife Marilyn, his daughter Colleen Bulmer, son Bob (Karen), his son Bill passed away suddenly March 13, 2019.Also mourning his loss are granddaughters Stefanie Bulmer and Kasey Bulmer, they were the delight of his life.

Nick left behind 5 siblings – Helen Moris, Pembina, ND, Olga Harway (Robert) of San Luis Obispo,CA, Lillian Renaud of Winnipeg, Maurice (Helen) of Victoria and Walter(Joan) of Burnaby, BC.

In honor of Nick, donations in his name to either the Alzheimer’s Society or Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.

Sands Funeral Chapel in Victoria, BC is in care of arrangements.
