In memoriam

In January 2017, Danny Rickaby passed away suddenly from a massive stroke. Danny was the owner and operator of several hospitality businesses in Nelson, BC and served on ABLE BC’s Board of Directors for over a decade. Danny will be remembered by all who knew him as a man of warmth, generosity, and infectiously enthusiastic spirit. We will sorely miss him.
