A Man Beloved by Many with Many Talents
Nigel is an incredible husband, brother, son, uncle, teammate, and ambassador of Dawg Nation. He is beloved by so many for his big heart, his generosity, his witty sense of humor, and of course his cooking!
He is a hockey player, a skiier, a hiker, a hunter and a world class fisherman and guide. If you’ve ever done any of these things with Nigel, you know he excels at them all and helps you become better through his coaching and mentoring.
Tough Sledding Ahead
Unfortunately Nigel suffered several heart attacks before a long ambulance ride from Fraser got him safely to Saint Anthony’s. Nigel’s heart experienced a pretty high degree trauma and he has a battle in front of him. The good news is that St. Anthony’s is a great heart facility. Right now the doctors aren’t taking any chances on his heart operating on its own until he gets stronger. Doctors are focused on forcing rest on him through meds and hoping that his body responds. He is going to be in the hospital for a while, but he is fighting the good fight.
A Time for Love, Thoughts and Prayers
His big and generous heart is struggling to recover and heal. He and his wife Kelly and the whole Richardson family need our thoughts, our prayers and our love.
