Nick Furchner

Recommended Posts

Nick Furchner of Reno NV passed away yesterday after a long fight with cancer. 

Long time big way jumper, awesome dentist and one of the most generous and caring individuals you could ever know. Nick will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him, jumpers and whuffos alike.

Blue skies, Nick.  

Fuck cancer.

Super awesome guy. Did lot's of jumps and tunnel with him over the years. One year, at an invitational at the home zone, I had a tooth problem that was a real pain. That night, after sufficient anesthetic was applied, Nick got after it with whatever was handy in the kitchen while the whole load looked on giving encouragement. Good times, great memories. He'll be sorely missed, that's a fact.

Just saw this in Parachutist.  I knew Nick for many years, he always had a smile and was fun to spend time with, whether in the air or partying after.  He will be missed by those who had the pleasure to know him.  Fly free, my friend!

In all the years I’ve been going to big-way events, record attempts, boogies, whatever, Nick was one of the special few that when you saw him on the DZ, you thought “cool! Nick is here” and you hoped he was on your plane.
