December 6, 1931 – March 23, 2012
at the age of 80 years
It is with deep sadness and regret we announce the passing of Nick Baun on the morning of March 23, 2012 in his home with his loving wife of 50 years Bruni, at his side.
Nick is also survived by their daughter Barbara (Rick), grandsons Nikolaus and Nathan, his brother Vic (Ruth), sisters Alexandra (Dieter) and Natalie (Alex) as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Nick was a builder/developer by trade, an avid golfer and always up for a good game of pool or cards with friends. He enjoyed travelling at home and abroad.
For about 30 years Nick was an active member of the Chase Lions Club.
A memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2012 in the Loft Restaurant Banquet Room; friends are welcome to help us celebrate his life.
Special thank you to the nurses of Chase Community Care, the care aides from Interior Health Home Support and Dr. Jill Calder.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Nick’s name may be made to the ALS Society of BC, 1233 13351 Commerce Parkway, Richmond, BC, V6V 2X7.
To Bruni, Barbara and the rest of the Baun family we send our deepest sympathy and condolances. His dedication and craftsmanship in his building was something to be admired. During our nine years in Chase I had many an opportunity to golf with Nick. He did enjoy the game immensely and even when the ball didn’t go where it was intended, which happened to us a lot, I could always detect a twinkle in his eye and slight grin on his face indicating to me that no matter how bad it was he was still having fun. We will miss that.
