City of Vernon mourns death of Patrick Nicol
The City of Vernon has lost one of its biggest boosters.
City councillor and Regional District of North Okanagan chairperson Patrick Nicol has died.
He was 64.
Nicol was a longtime broadcaster and radio station general manager. His length of service on Vernon city council was among the longest of any councillor in B.C.
“His dedication to his community was a foundation of his life and work,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. “We will all greatly miss his wisdom and kindness, as well as his efforts to make his community a better place.”
