NICHOLSON, David Taylor March 27, 1932 April 9, 2018 RCAF pilot instructor, stockbroker, technophile, gifted photographer and video editor, webmaster above all, Chairman for over 35 years of the storied Wednesday Night Salon David defies description. He was a one-off event. Creative, insatiably curious, stubbornly innovative, constantly evolving in his thinking, loyal to his friends and champion of their causes. Incurably politically incorrect, he was the quintessential non-conformist who loved tradition. Born in Montreal, the only son of Mary Taylor and David George Nicholson, he attended Sedbergh School and Lower Canada College before joining the RCAF. After 8 years of service, he returned to Montreal which was his home forever after. David leaves his wife, Diana Thébaud Nicholson and their children, Fiona Nicholson of Calgary, Marc Thébaud Nicholson (Jean Low) of Singapore and their children Maya and Tebo; James (Jamie) of Vancouver and David of Whistler, BC, stepdaughter Jeannette Whitton of Vancouver and her children Joelle and Ryan. Friends of all ages and around the globe join them in cherishing his memory. Thanks to the entire orthopedics team of the Jewish General's C-8, and heartfelt appreciation for the devoted care given over many years by Dr. Howard Chertkow and his amazing research team at the JGH Memory Clinic. Special thanks to Beth Canapi for looking after David and Diana so well. A celebration of David's life followed by a reception will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, April 27, 2018, at the Mount Royal Funeral Complex/Complexe funéraire Mont- Royal, 1297 Chemin de la Forêt, Outremont, QC, H2V 2P9, 514-279 -6540.
