Appreciation for the Late Nick Nichols

Laurens County Chief Deputy Coroner Vickie Cheek yesterday morning issued a statement regarding the death of Laurens County Coroner F. G. “Nick” Nichols Monday afternoon. She said he is being remembered “as a true Southern Gentleman and a friend to so many individuals of this community.  He had so much compassion and sensitivity for helping countless families navigate through some of the most difficult times of their lives. Coroner Nichols truly cared about all the people he served.  He fought a long and hard battle after having a partial amputation last June, but he never gave up on coming back to his office and serving his county. His staff will greatly miss him, and I know the citizens of the county will miss his services.”
