Emmett—Nicholas Michael Bawden, 18, passed away Monday, March 11, 2019 at his home.
He was born December 11, 2000 at Onaga, the son of Brian K. and Diane L. VandeVelde Bawden. Nick lived in the Emmett community all of his life. Nicholas was a very bright young man who was loved by many. He loved being outside and working with his hands, especially making knives. When not outdoors, he was inside watching his favorite T.V. shows and playing video games. He had worked at St. Marys Lumber in the summer of 2018 and was looking forward to working for them again fulltime in June, and finding a truck. Nicholas will be missed by everyone he came in contact with.
May the LORD have Mercy on his Soul, and that Nicholas will pray for us here on earth until we reach our eternal home. In Jesus name we pray.
