1993 ~ Nicolas “Nick” Hill ~ 2020

It is with broken hearts we announce the sudden passing of our beloved son and brother, Nick. He is no longer sad and confused; he was imprisoned in a “powerful darkness.” He is flying with the angels now. Nick was pre-deceased by his grandfather, Neil Campbell and grandparents, Leonard and Helen Hill. Nick is survived by his most loyal and closest companion golden retriever, Bailey; his mother and father, Sandra and Doug; brother, Morgan (Steph); sister, Kirsten (Paul); grandma and grandpa, Elaine and Ken Hanson; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. We find strength in knowing that he is at peace and reconnected with his grandparents in Heaven. Nick was a caring soul and he touched the lives of many people. He had a smile that would light up a room and a determination like no one else. He enjoyed inline hockey, ice hockey, snow boarding and golfing. Nick had a deep passion for all animals, space and galaxy and photography. He was a loyal friend, a noble brother, a loving grandson, and a kind nephew and cousin. Nick had an admiration and a curiosity of his ancestry and the ancient world. He had a passion for reading and a passion for learning. He had an open, spiritual mind-set and was never afraid to try new things. He genuinely cared about others and was wise beyond his years. His infectious personality, his little laugh (he was all smiles), will be missed along with his unique way of making you think about life. We will miss him forever and always. Rest in P-E-A-C-E our beautiful boy. A celebration of Nick’s life will be held at a later date. In honour of Nick’s memory, donations can be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 204 – 1865 Dunmore Road SE, Medicine Hat, Alberta T1A 1Z8.

1951 ~ Henry Fournier ~ 2020

He will be terribly missed by his wife, Petra Fournier; son, Shane (Terri) Fournier and their children Jordyn and Brooklyn; son, Dustin (Christine) Fournier; daughter, Nicole Moss and her son Dainen Johnston who shared a bond like no other. His sister, Evelyn (Allen) Mcquid; and brother, Gilbert Fournier. He was an active member of the community with the Moose Lodge, Legion and UCT. Henry loved to do meat draws, play cards, play pool and a bit of golf when he was not painting lines. Henry worked for Modern Industrial Rentals for 35 years until he retired. His real passion was Fournier’s Line Painting and he took such pride in his parking lots and straight lines. Anybody who met Henry or who had worked with him never looked at parking lots the same way. He enjoyed his time with the grandchildren and was very proud of all three grandchildren and his family. A man of few words but a wonderful listener and that made you feel loved and cared for. Henry was such an animal lover so in lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Medicine Hat SPCA, 55 Southview Drive SW, Medicine Hat, Alberta, T1A 8E8.
