Wade James Brockmier
Wade James Brockmier, aka "Nickel Wade," 50, passed away on Wednesday, March 30, 2016, at home in Glasgow, Mont.
He was born to Wesley Brockmier and Dorothy Friedrich on March 15, 1966, in Plentywood, Mont. He attended school there and graduated from Plentywood High School in 1984. He married Marisa Palazzo on July 18, 1997, and together, they made their home in Glasgow. He was the proud papa of Baby and Ally.
He was an enthusiastic member of the community and the Elk's Lodge, where he would often fill his afternoons with cards and friends. You could also find him at the Stockmans or Alley's shooting pool and making people pay. He was always looking for a cause, having everyone's best interests at heart. He touched lives wherever he went. He was a rock - supporting and solid. Thinking of Wade, the words that come to mind are encouraging, generous, sly, trickster, Raider Nation fan, friend, confidant, selfless, calm, wise, supportive, kind, compassionate, loved, genuine, consistent, dependable, vulnerable, strong, practical, judicious, powerful, passionate cook, butterscotch jellybean aficionado, baseball card fanatic, Christmas in July participant, pet pig advocate, King of the "Roost" and 4 Horsemen crusader.
Wade, you will live on forever in our hearts.
