Richard Torosian

Richard “Dick Nick” Torosian, 29, passed away on Aug. 15, 2018, in Cusick, Wash.

Richard was born on April 9, 1989, in Seattle, Wash., to Christina Nick. Though Christina was unable to care for Richard, with open and loving arms Kathy Torosian adopted him and he was welcomed by his Torosian Family. He shared a childhood with his sisters Marisa, Liz and Barbara, cousins Bridget and Paulette, and many others. Richard grew up in St. Igantius and attended St. Ignatius High School and graduated in 2008.

Growing up you could find Richard lending a helping hand anywhere or any way he could, or was cracking some crazy joke. He loved being outdoors, either fishing, hunting, berry picking, drumming, listening to music or just cruising in the woods. Richard moved to Usk a few years ago to get to know his Kalispel Family better, and he was welcomed by so many. Wilma and Francis Cullooyah helped and guided him in so many ways. Thank you to them for opening their home and helping Dick Nick and loving him so much.

He is survived by his mother, Kathy Torosian; uncle, Ron Nick; Godfather, Kim Samuels; sisters, Marisa (Erik Aguiluz) Torosian, Liz Nick, Barbara (Anthony Martian) Nick, and Tricia (Mandi Gullotta) Finley; nieces, Sienna Aguiluz, Mia Pitts, Ivory Nick and Audrey Finley; nephews, Sir Aguiluz, Aiden Finley and John Wrede; as well as numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, great friends and so many others who were a part of his life.

Richard will be joining those who have passed before him: birth mother, Christina Nick; ya-ya, Jeanette Conko-Torosian; grandpas, Tony Torosian and Frank Nick; aunts, Geri Nick and Maurita Pierre; and cousins, Clint Robison and Shanna Robison.

Services were held on Aug. 17, 2018, with rosary at 7 p.m., followed by funeral services Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018 at 10 a.m. at the Tule Lodge-Powwow Grounds in Usk, Wash.

Sherman-Campbell Funeral and Cremation Services in Newport, Wash., was in charge of arrangements. Family and friends are invited to sign the online guest book at shermancampbell.com.
