Obituary of Frank Wallace Nichols

Frank Wallace Nichols passed away on August 21, 2020, at 85 years of age at his home in Hartland, Maine. Frank was born on April 11, 1935, to Wallace E Nichols and Anna J Nichols. He passed while surrounded by his loving family. Frank served in the United States Navy from 1952-1971 and was honorably discharged after many years of service to our great nation. He went on to work for Cianbro and Edwards Co. until his retirement. Frank was always first and foremost a family man, who happened to love camping, 4-wheeling, fishing, and, most of all, working in his wood working shop alongside his wife. He built many things for his family with those two loving hands. He was a devoted husband, father, and above all else, he had a love for his family that was never ending. He would frequently be seen getting his morning coffee at the local shop and chatting at the counter. And, was frequently covered in dirt from the wheeler or dust from the wood shop. He was a spiritual man that had a love of gospel music. And, when at home you could always sit and watch a Western with him. He was rarely seen without a smile and was always ready to lend a hand. Frank is survived by his wife, Jeanie Nichols, his children, Daniel Nichols of Hartland, ME, Cindy Wright of Middleton, OH, Timothy Nichols of Petersburg, AK, Douglas Nichols and his wife Toni of Plymouth, ME, Kathi Wing and her husband Tony of Wellington, ME. His step-children Amy Macdonald and her husband Jason of Athens, ME, Robin Nelson and her partner Todd of Canton, ME, Karen Wilson and her husband David of Saranac Lake, NY and Bradley Nelson of Hartland, ME, and, his many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his first wife, Barbara Nichols, brothers, Gilbert Nichols and Edward Nichols, and sisters Ruth Landon and Alice Loring.
