In Memory of

James W. Nichols

January 21, 1952 - October 25, 2022


James W. Nichols, age 70, died Tuesday, October 24, at St. Luke’s Hospital after a long struggle with heart disease. He leaves behind his beloved wife of nearly 21 years, Sandie Nichols, and a large family. He will be sadly missed and will always hold a place in our hearts.

Aside from his family, Jim’s greatest devotion was to the military. He served in the Air Force and retired as a Master Sergeant with honors in 1990 after 20 years of service. His skillset was repairing radars on battleships in the Pacific.

After his military career, he worked for the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as an electronics technician. He retired in 2021. Jim was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and supported its causes throughout his life.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his memory to VFW Post #5789.

Graveside services will be held on Thursday, November 10, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. at Missouri Veterans Cemetery, Higginsville, MO.

My deepest condolences on Jim’s passing. He was always polite and kind. When I lived in Lee’s Summit I was privileged to meet both him and Sandy. They always were kind and always had a smile . God bless his family .

We are so glad we met Jim at Janene & Jeremy’s wedding reception. It is our regret that we didn’t get to know him better. We are assured he was deeply loved and appreciated by his wife Sandy and their family.

Our sincere condolences on Jim’s passing. He was friendly and always willing to talk when we’d catch each other outside. Our prayers and thoughts are with Sandie and the family.
