Fitch, Karry John (Nick)  
Karry John (Nick) Fitch 1954 - 2015 Karry John Fitch (known to us all as Nick) was born March 16, 1954 in New York's Harlem. Known for his hearty laugh and good spirits, Nick delighted in bringing together his love of music, people, and life. Nick passed away February 6th surrounded by family, dear friends, and the music he so loved. He was 60 years old. While in New York, Nick attended the Dalton School. In 1966 he moved with his family to Marin County and attended St. Raphael's School, Davidson Middle School and San Rafael High School. This was the source of lifelong friendships, and the foundation of many stories and fun adventures. Nick received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of California at Berkeley. While at CAL, Nick worked as a manager for Tower Records. This position marked a special time in Nick's life; it celebrated his love of music and fueled his passion and pride in building what had to be one of the world's largest personal record collections. After graduation Nick pursued his love of music as an Account Executive in the recording industry at Capital Records, Warner Brothers, and Bill Graham Presents. Nick also applied his knowledge of music and entertainment in support of many creative projects including a documentary on Jaco Pastorious, WIN TV - an innovative start up that helped bring news to Native American Communities, Rifftime.com - a content-rich, multifaceted site, giving artists the best possible shot at earning revenue through the sale of their digital assets, Opera on Treasure Island, and numerous other projects. Nick will be remembered for his contributions to the Marin County community and the arts. As a member of the San Rafael Elks Club, one of his most remarkable achievements was the founding of 'Tunes on the Terrace' which included Summer concerts on the Lodge's beautiful outdoor terrace and converting the indoor dining area to a ballroom for Winter musical events and dancing. Further applying his talents, Nick was an important asset at Cresalia Jewelers in San Francisco for much of the last decade. Nick faced his illness with courage and grace. He led the way showing us that the quality of the life he lived far exceeded its length. His laughter, smile, sharp intellect, humor and wit will stay with us forever. His legacy is his many friends, an incredibly diverse and loving group of people that were his extended family and in whose memories he will continue to be a source of humor and love. But the sorrow, mixed with great memories, will remain side-by-side without end. A celebration of Nick's life will be held at St. Raphael's Church in San Rafael on March 14th at noon with a reception to follow. In Nick's memory please take time to listen to some of your favorite music, share your favorite song or playlist with a friend, e-mail a joke or a funny story, reach out to an old friend and let them know you love them, laugh and enjoy life! Donations are also welcome to the Nick Fitch Music Fund. This fund is newly established by the Elks Lodge for the music program and students at San Rafael High School.

Nick's family and friends would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staff, nurses and doctors at the University of California San Francisco's (UCSF's) Cardiac Care Unit, 10th floor, and Kalisi Toli and her staff. Their care, kindness and professionalism made Nick's final journey a dignified, peaceful, joyous and loving event. Nick is survived by mother: Anna N.
