Obituary

It is with sadness, we announce that God called Robert David McNichol home on Friday Oct. 18, 2019. Robert was born July 21, 1946 at Nokomis, Saskatchewan. He grew up on the family farm NE of Nokomis, attending Richfarms and Nokomis schools. After school he began mixed farming with his Dad, although he claims he started farming at age 4 picking rocks with his Grampa McNichol.
November 8, 1969 Robert married Colleen Badham of Nokomis at Anglican Christ Church. They were blessed with two sons – Keith Robert & Ian Douglas.
Robert loved the land and farming. He also loved being in the Boreal forest smelling the trees. The family made countless trips camping & fishing in Northern Saskatchewan. In the late 1980’s Robert leased a Registered Trapline in Northern Saskatchewan. This soon led to his starting Kutawagan Outfitters for big game north of the Torch River along the Hansen Lake road.
Robert was also involved in his community. He served on Town of Nokomis council and served 19 years as councillor for the RM of Mount Hope 279. He was a Scout leader in early years and later years lead Scout camping trips in the Northern Saskatchewan. He enjoyed curling, golf, snowmobiling and cross country skiing. He gave his family an appreciation for the outdoors.
Robert & Colleen enjoyed travelling together and the last 15 years they spent some winter months on Vancouver Island.
After his health failed he spent his time going to the farm to supervise and help out anyway that he could. He also became a collector of vintage vehicles.
He loved & was very proud of all his family. He readily accepted & loved new additions to the family.
Robert was predeceased by his parents Annie & Wilbert; his parents-in–law Isabel & Harry Badham; sister-in-law Shirley Badham; Nephew Michael McNichol.
Robert is survived by his wife of 50 years, Colleen; his two sons Keith(Tracy) and Ian(Janie); his grandchildren Tessa(David), Peyton(Wil), Daegan(Kayla), Hallee, Rylee, Isabel, Corban, Lily and David. He is also survived by his siblings Lyle (Francis), Anne (Irv) Martens, Claude (Ruth) and brothers-in-law Walter Badham and George (Iris) Badham. He is also survived by numerous nieces & nephews.

To Colleen and family;
I was saddened to read of your loss in the LMTimes, and wanted to send condolences your way and let you know how much my Mom, Trudy Krueger, would be shocked and saddened to know that Robert passed away (if she was here). She spoke of you often and had many fond memories to share. My thoughts are with you as you start this new journey.

Sincerely,
Sylvia Reinheimer (nee: Krueger)

To Colleen and family,
I first met Robert through his brother Lyle when we visited many years ago to the farm. Robert impressed me at that time for his ability with a shotgun on high flying geese and his one line humor. In later years the McNichol brothers joined me every June for an annual fishing trip. Robert was his own man, but once you were his friend you were a friend for life through thick and thin. There was a magic about Robert and some of the events we shared on our memory trail were unbelievable - real legendary material. You had to be there.

I will miss him deeply. Selfishly, I wanted his friendship for many years to come so we could build more memories. Thank you Robert for the contributions you made to my life. Race well run. Until we meet again rest in peace. All is well with you and me.
Ken Arthurs and Olesia Krawetz.
