February 9, 1941 - May 20, 2021
The Bot family is sad to announce the passing of their dear brother Nicholas (Nick) Bot on May 20, 2021 after a long bout with cancer and treatments.
Nick was born in Holland on February 9, 1941, had immigrated to Smithers with his family in 1958 and had become obsessed with the natural beauty of BC which inspired him to capture mountain and ocean scenes and transferring them to canvas using vivid colours and abstract portrayals.
He was incredibly talented in creating beautiful art and paintings which were displayed in many galleries and for which he will be well remembered.
He was predeceased by his twin brother Gerry, sister Mary and Trudy as well as parents Cornelius and Alida.
He is survived by his loving wife Sharon, his brother Kees, John and Jos and sister Annie.
His ashes are to be scattered throughout the mountains of Whistler where he got most of his inspiration from.
