Nick Thompson passed away March 11, 2020 at the young age of 34. Nick was a “One of a Kind” character. He could light up a room with his presence, he was quite entertaining. He was always ready for an adventure and fun.

Born April 14, 1985 in Sun Valley, Idaho at Moritz Hospital he was very proud of his Idaho roots and his favorite places to be were all within the state. He established friendships in pre-school that continued into his adult years. He graduated from Wood River High School and then attended Boise State University and the College of Southern Idaho. Growing up here he was of course an accomplished skateboarder and snowboarder. He was very proud of his time on the Board of Rotarun Ski Area.

He had a talent for art and his gifts of his art were always treasured by those that received them. He loved to watch movies and could quote you lines from almost every movie ever made, it was impressive.

As a career he enjoyed sales as he loved to talk with people. He worked for Sun Valley Online, The Boise Weekly, KECH & KSKI, and The Idaho Mountain Express. It was at the newspaper that Nick found his niche; he loved the pace, the deadlines and his fellow workers. As his illness progressed and he was no longer able to work, it was his desire to return to work that made him fight his illness as hard and as long as he could.

Nick is survived by his partner Echo Christensen, his parents Mike & Sydney, his brothers Ben & Grayson (Courtney), niece Evelyn and very special friends Tiona, Charlotte and Pat. And of course his dogs Bubba & Fritz. Thank you to all of Nick’s friends that visited and kept in touch during his illness and hospitalizations.

A Celebration of Nick’s Life will be scheduled for a date this summer.

I worked with him briefly, he was positive, focused and a hard worker, I appreciate the time I was able to have with him. I'll remember him fondly. Rest in peace.

In our thoughts forever. Jeff, Claudie and Bob Goldstein

Nick was my first buddy upon moving to the US at the age of 10. He welcomed me to the crew and we lived large throughout our teens. His character, humor and friendship will be deeply missed. Deepest condolences to his family on behalf of the Goldstein family, and absolute thanks, respect and condolences to Echo who supported and loved him until the very end.
