Nicholas A. Carmichael


Nicholas "Nick" A. Carmichael, 37, died Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019 in Oklahoma City, Okla., from complications following surgery for a congenital heart defect. He fought bravely for 2½ months in the hospital before succumbing to heart failure.
Nick is lovingly remembered by his loving wife Katie of 10 years. They were married in Maryland on Sept. 27, 2008. He is also survived by his sister Morgan Bennett and husband Mark and children Hunter, Talen and Melody, sister Montana Rangel and other loving relatives.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Michelle Snead and by his grandmother, Marcia Snead.
Born in Oklahoma City, Okla. on July 22, 1981, he underwent his first open heart surgery in 1983 to correct his heart defect, Tetralogy of Fallot. After surgery he began to thrive. He graduated high school from Northwest Classen in 2000 before attending Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology; he graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Aviation Management. He worked many years in technical support, most recently for Love's Travel Stops.
Nick enjoyed traveling, especially road trips and to National Parks, with Yellowstone being one of his favorites. He also enjoyed playing video games, reading, medieval fairs and Dungeons & Dragons. His real passion was for his family and friends. He gave the best hugs and could always be counted on for a joke or an ear to listen.
The memorial service will 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019 at Crawford Family Funeral & Cremation with a reception to follow.
Friends and family are invited to Edmond Unplugged to share stories and celebrate the fun and adventure that Nick loved on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019 at 1 p.m.
