Marc Carter Nicholls

Memorial services will take place Aug. 11 for Marc Carter Nicholls, who died unexpectedly Aug. 1, 2004, at Stateline, Nev. He was 43.

Marc was born Aug. 29, 1960, at Denver, Colo., and graduated from the University of Colorado in 1983 with a degree in economics. On a dare, he decided to move to Lake Tahoe. Marc chose a simple life, though he lived it to the fullest. Ever since earning the status of Eagle Scout, with his uniform full of badges and patches, he enjoyed the outdoors and the mountains. He traveled to Nepal to see Mt. Everest first-hand, as television documentaries or the stacks of National Geographic magazines he pilfered from his father’s collection were not enough.

Marc had been a resident of Stateline for 21 years and had been employed at Shoreline Ski & Sports for the past 19 years. He also had worked for Glenbrook Golf Course in the summers for the past 12 years, where he taught golf lessons. Marc was especially fond of his two passions – skiing and golf. He mastered the sport of skiing at an early age. He ate lunch on the chairlift and skied every weekend until the last flake of snow melted in the spring. He aspired to play golf on the Champions Tour when he was eligible. His friends and family knew that he would have attained this goal and were drawing straws to figure out who would caddy for him first.

He is survived by brother, Bruce; brother and sister-in-law, Tedd and Anna-Maria; niece, Magot; and nephew, Joshua, all of Denver. Everyone who knew Marc will sorely miss him.

Memorial services will begin at 2 p.m. Aug. 11 at FitzHenry’s Carson Valley Funeral Home, 1380 Highway 395, Gardnerville, Nev.

Arrangements are in care of FitzHenry’s Carson Valley Funeral Home in Gardnerville.
