John Patrick Nieshe, age 46, of Birdsview, WA, passed away on Wednesday, March 8, 2017.  He was born January 3, 1971, in Sedro-Woolley, WA to George and Mary (Hinds) Nieshe.  He was the youngest of 4 children.  He went to school in the Sedro-Woolley School District, growing up in the Day Creek area.  John was a Jack-of-all-trades, working in construction, helping to remodel homes and build commercial buildings.  He worked with different kinds of wood.  He loved to fish at Grandy Lake.  He was loved by many and had lots of friends.  There was never a dull moment when Johnnie was around; he was the life of the party.  He would help anyone, giving you the shirt off his back.  He was great at what he did.

John is survived by his parents, George and Mary Nieshe; sisters, Rose Troxel and Ken Zweegman, and Cindy White Armijo and Dan Armijo all of Sedro-Woolley, brother, Elbert “Buster” Nieshe and Joanne Nieshe, of Ridgefield, WA; nieces, Danielle DeVoe, Brittani Nelsen and Nicole Nieshe; nephews, James Troxel, Bradley Troxel, Thomas Nieshe, Derek White and Tyler Johnson; numerous great nieces, nephews and cousins, aunts and uncles; ex-wife Sandie Samera Nieshe.

    I will always remember John for his high level of integrity and honor!
    If you were ever hungry, he would feed you
    If you were ever cold, he would tell you get in here and sit by the fire.
    We very rarely caught anything at Grandy,
    But his outlook on that was” oh well, at least it’s better than a desk job” John was not only a very good friend to me, he was a brother!
