Nicholson, David "Dave" Hunt

David "Dave" Hunt Nicholson, 76, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, passed away, Friday, August 19, 2016 at his home.

Dave was born May 14, 1940 in Richmond, Indiana to Hubert and Martha (Hunt) Nicholson. On August 15, 1970 he married Debra "Debbie" Janeanne Nicholson in Albuquerque.

He was a cantankerous cowboy with a huge heart and a gallant work ethic, only retiring a few years prior to his passing. He thoroughly enjoyed attending church, talking with strangers, singing in the church choir, reading/watching westerns and spending time with his wife, children and grandchildren.

Dave is survived by his three children, David Michael Nicholson and his wife Jennifer of Wray, CO; Frank Samuel Nicholson and his wife Katie of Albuquerque, NM; and Heather Michelle Bottomley (Nicholson) of Seattle, WA; seven grandchildren, Adam, Neleh, Meghan, Cordelia, Xayla, Jason and Ava; two great-grandchildren, Kimberly and Sky; his sister Elinor Bates and brother Philip Nicholson of Albuquerque, NM, and several nieces and nephews.
