Hello my name is Dave Bonanno and my wife Honey and I are starting a Go Fund Me for an amazing family.
On July 1st 2021 we all lost a very bright and shinning star too soon. Bear J. Nichols, 15 yr old was sadly sent to heaven with his Grand Uncle David Paladino in a small plane crash in Lamoni, Iowa.
Bear was born in CA on September 26, 2005. He moved to Phoenix in 2020 to live with his Father Ted Nichols and his Stepmother Julie Nichols.
Bear had a heart as big as a whale. His smile and attitude would light up any room. He loved playing guitar and was very active in pursuing his interest in acting. Even at such a young age he had an amazing work ethic and was saving up to buy his own first car.
His entire family is obviously distraught and heart broken. No parent should ever have to lose their child at any age. Bear was taken by God for a purpose that only he knows.
We are hoping to raise monies to give them to help with all the travel and burial expenses. Bear has family in NE, NM and AZ so it's quite a lot to deal with.
Bear is survived by his Mother Megan Bull, Stepfather Garrett Bull, half Stepsister Daisy and three Stepbrother's Logan, Nathan and Ian.
Please find it in your heart to help this family through this very tragic and emotional time. There is no amount too small, every dollar will go to help them lay Bear to rest.
