Condolence: Our thoughts and prayers are with the Nichols family as you celebrate the life of your Dad. My Mom, Marjorie (Hofmeister) Johnson went to school with him, graduating from Lewis High School in 1940. She told me that he was mischievous (!)when in school and remembers one time when he started whistling, but hiding it somehow. The teacher, Miss Pingery, made my Mom leave the room and go outside to see what kid was whistling, and to tell them to stop. Mom knew very well it was Fletcher, but didn't tattle on him! So there's a story to bring a smile to your face. May God's goodness and faithfulness reflect in your character, as Fletcher taught and lived.
Condolence: We extend deepest sympathy to our Dear Cousin Colleen and to all of Fletcher's amazing family. We had many wonderful visits with Fletcher who always had interesting things to talk about, and was always very cheerful and friendly. Along with all his family and friends, we will cherish fond memories of Fletcher.
Condolence: Few leave this physical world with more reasons for satisfactions and pride than Fletcher Nichols - - his wonderful family, his forward-looking and productive farming career, his leadership, and his endless list of friends. It has been our benefit and appreciation to have been his friends for about 70 years, to observe and admire him and, certainly, his highly respected family.
It is only our regret that we could not be present to personally express to his family our admiration and appreciation.

How uplifting it is to celebrate the life of your dad, father-in-law, and grandpa. Many generations of your family have had the opportunity to treasure the goodness of Fletcher. What wonderful lasting memories you must have! Sadness prevails, but joy does come in the morning. Praying that you will find that fulfilling joy that only Jesus can bring. Our sincere sympathies to you.
I am sorry to hear of your father's passing because of the loss it means in your lives. At the same time I praise God for the beautiful life he led - so faithful in all his ways to the God he knew and loved. That dedication of both your sweet parents shines in each one of you and down through your families, I am sure. Just recently I told a Fletcher story, that I think I must have learned from Shirley, about his thoughtful, loving & effective method of physical discipline. I would have loved to be at his service to hear the stories and see you all.
His joy is complete now. May our God bring you many sweet memories and soothe the ache of distance.
Condolence: What a blessed weaving of lives began with meeting Cindy and Shirley (and soon after Dick and Craig) in college and later Jane and Craig and Bill and Linda after moving to Atlantic! That led to meeting many of the rest of your siblings and the children who came along through the years as well as your legacy leading Dad, Mom, Uncle Dick, and Aunt Mary. We could never begin to number the ways in which you ALL have impacted our lives as well as our children's! 'Grateful to God' seems a minuscule phrase to what fills our hearts on this day. Our prayers are lifted to the Lord for all of you.. We are confident that the Lord will comfort each of you in the individual way each of you needs. It is a wonderful thing to see the legacy continue through the next generations!
We love you and will continue to pray for you in the days ahead.

Condolence: Sherry and family, you're all in our prayers as you say good-bye to your Dad and Grandpa. "For all the saints who from their labors rest, Who thee by faith before the world confessed,Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blessed. Alleluia! Alleluia!"
Condolence: Doug and I send our sympathy and prayers to the Nichols family. We have many wonderful memories of family reunions and get togethers. Fletcher was an inspiration and a great patriarch to an awesome family!
