NOLAN RUSSELL BOATRIGHT

NOLAN RUSSELL BOATRIGHT

Nolan Russell Boatright, of Seattle, WA, formerly of Issaquah, ended his suffering on Saturday, May 5, 2018. He had suffered for many years from severe depression, anxiety and suspected mood regulation disorder.

Nolan is survived by his brother Will, mother Jodi, father Ken, beloved dog Gus, of Issaquah, WA, his maternal grandparents Jim & Jo Regan of Sweet Home, OR, paternal grandmother Dottie Boatright of Eureka, MT as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. His paternal Grandfather Ron Boatright predeceased Nolan.

He was only 20 years old and still had so much to offer the world. He was an amazingly talented young man and was passionate about music, art, fashion and science. All those who knew Nolan, please remember him forever for his smile, his laugh, and hearing him playing his guitars and piano.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in Nolan’s memory to NAMI-National Alliance on Mental Illness, www.nami.org or to the National Guild for Community Arts Education National Guild, nationalguild.org. Nolan was a talented musician and artist. He was passionate about wanting to further the arts in education.

Please, let’s talk about mental illness. It is too important to hide it.
