The greatest man I have ever known has left us.

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Neldon Nichols, Jr., known as Nick to his friends.  He completed his earthly mission on May 31, 2023.  Nick was born on May 15, 1947 in Mesa, AZ where he resided his entire life.  He was the eldest son of the late Neldon and Janell Nichols.  He was a loving husband, brother, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather and will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

Nick was a man who lived his life with a passion for making a difference in the lives of others. He was involved with the Boy Scouts of America for 65 years in every capacity.  He worked tirelessly to improve his community through service to countless young men and adult leaders.  Nick was known for his kindness, generosity, and willingness to lend a helping hand.  He was full of patience, especially towards his children.  As an accomplished carpenter and draftsman, he designed and/or built hundreds of homes in the state throughout his life. He was a huge ASU supporter and held football season tickets with his family and friends for the past 50 years.  He was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving a mission in Toronto Canada, and in a multitude of callings after.

He is survived by his wife of over 52 years, Linda, and children Nathan (Jessie), Kara (Todd Bowman), Lorette (David Haynes), Ryan (Amber), Brandon (Olena), Kendon (Jenn), and 27 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. He is also survived by his brothers David, Jack, Jim, Tom, Alan and sister Linda Petersen. He was preceded in death by his parents, and sisters Peggy Hipps and Barbara Gibson.

Funeral services will be held Friday, June 9th at 10am with a viewing starting at 9am at the LDS chapel located at 2618 N Lindsay Rd in Mesa. (Lindsay Rd north of Mckellips)

He was truly a great man and his legacy will continue to inspire others for generations to come.
