Sipayik - Nicholas Dana Jr. passed away from an unexpected head injury on July 28th, 2020. Nicholas, aka Nicky, was born and raised by his mother Marsha Ann Dana (Sapiel) of Sipayik and father Nicholas Dana Sr. from Indian township. He left behind his only child Nadia Marie Dana and his two grandsons along with his siblings. Nicky was raised on the Sipayik reservation. He attended High School at Fryberg Academy and graduated from Lee Academy. He went on to work as a carpenter in California for several years until moving back to the reservation when his mother, Marsha, passed away. Nicky was a kind and humble man with a great sense of humor. He could be found cracking jokes and bringing joy to those around him with a contagious smile and laugh, or fine-tuning his artistic abilities through beadwork with his mother. He had many friends he thought of as siblings. He would give the shirt off his back, even if he didn't have much to give. Nicky dicky was always happy, smiling, and caring. Whenever we hear a bird chirp, we will remember him and the memories we share. Nick will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Survived by his daughter Nadia Dana and his two beautiful grandsons Nolan Ernest and Elias Quinn; his father Nicholas Sr. and his wife Annette Dana of Indian Township; sisters: Natalie and her husband Kyle Dana-Lolar of Indian Island, Stacey Rae and husband Dan LaCoote of Indian Township, and Cassandra and her husband Kevin Murray of Indian Township; a brother Derek Moore of Indian Township; Uncles: James and wife Theresa Sapiel of Pleasant Point, and Joe Sapiel of Pleasant Point; aunts: Clarice Sapiel and son Wesley of Pleasant Point, Sandra Lewey of Pleasant Point; Cousin Bradley, and so many more nieces, nephews, and numerous cousins. He is predeceased by maternal grandparents Mae Nicholas and Linwood “Red” Sapiel, mother Marsha Sapiel, brothers Dominic Dana and Anthony Dana. Aunts Veronica, Phyllis and Flora Sapiel. Uncles Lenny and Dominic Sapiel. Cousins Fawn Sapiel and Shane Sapiel.

Services will be postponed until a later date due to current restrictions with COVID-19. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.

Nice was the most kind and caring soul. He took after his mother, Marsha, who I miss dearly. Life can never be the same without this angel on earth.
