Harper, Nigel

Nigel was taken unexpectedly on December 22, 2013. He was 52 years old; and though his years were few, they were full. He leaves behind his two sons, Jason and Cameron; his brother, Peter and his partner in life, Monty.

Nigel worked in the Correctional Service of Canada for over 30 years at various institutions throughout the region and achieved the title of Assistant Warden of Operations.

He loved to travel and did so often. Those who knew him best will recall fondly of his home to be full of artwork and sculptures, all from distant and exotic lands.

Most significant to Nigel was his job as a dad and family man, a role he embraced fully; and was in return embraced for.

A Celebration of Nigel’s life will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, January 11, 2014 at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 45901 Victoria Ave. Chilliwack, BC
