Don R Nickel

February 28th, 1952 - April 21st, 2012

Don was born February 29, 1952 in Caldwell, Idaho, to Ellen Jean and Norm Nickel. Don was raised and educated in Caldwell and was also known to all his friends and relatives as Moto, Nick, Don Don and Popcorn Pucker. No matter what name you knew him by, he was caring, generous and loving. He graduated from Caldwell High in 1970 and enrolled at Boise State College in the fall. He hit the lottery when he met Sharlene Fuqua and made her his bride on a hot summer day July 13, 1974. They were insuperable until his final day. They enjoyed fishing, camping and day road trips. He participated in several fishing derbies and won and always shared his winnings with Shar, as she did with him. He was a professional brick mason and worked with his dad and Uncle Leroy. When dad retired, Don became Leroy’s partner in the business. Don is survived by his bride Shar, his dad, sister Jo (Dennis) Bergvall of Charlston, SC, brother Jerry of Nampa, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins. He was preceded in death by his beloved mother. A celebration of life will be held at the Caldwell Elks Lodge #1448, 1015 N Kimball, on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 2:00 PM. Condolences to the family may be made at Service Information
