In Loving Memory of Nikki Givens

Nikki Renee Givens, beloved son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle, and grand uncle was born November 23, 1961 on Thanksgiving day at Haborview Hospital. His parents Eddie C. and Joyce Marie Givens welcomed their 6th child. Nikki’s grandparents were: David and Gladys Givens; and Charles and Mable Carter. In the words of his mother, “Nikki was very comical, he was always happy, and he kept you happy even when he made jokes about you. Nikki was a very nice person, but he liked getting into trouble.” Nikki does not have a traditional life story. At an early age he chose a different path. However, in his senior years, Nikki became a childcare provider, a volunteer at Seattle Humane Society, Bellevue, WA and a proud renter. His saving grace was Plymouth Housing a permanent supportive housing residence for people who have experienced chronic homelessness.

Dear Ms. Joyce and Michael, I’m so sad to hear that Nikki ( as well as Anita) have gone on to glory. I will never forget how he made me laugh as a kid. He always had a smile on his face.

I remember hearing all of the latest albums in his room; especially Natalie Cole. For some reason, he put up me bugging him all the time.

I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ eases your pain and gives you all supernatural peace concerning your loss.

Much Love always,

Felecia B. (Majacque’s big Sister)
