It is with great sadness that we inform our Coastkeeper family about the loss of one of our own. Rick Nicholson, long-time board member and former board President, and his wife Kim passed away recently at their home in Newport Beach.
Rick was a strong believer in advocating for clean water in his local community. He collaborated with the Coastkeeper staff to bring our programs into Newport Beach and other coastal cities. For almost 15 years, Rick served as a leader on our board of directors, pushing himself and others to contribute as much as they could to help our mission. Rick also chaired our annual “Toast the Coast” event for several years.
Coastkeeper expresses our deepest sympathies to his family. We are forever grateful for his years of service to protect Orange County’s water. His presence will be sincerely missed.
