Herman Nichols

Herman Nichols

Herman Samuel Nichols was born in Imperial, Saskatchewan on September 26, 1923. He passed away on October 10, 2012 in Ponoka. A celebration of his life took place at St. Mary’s Anglican Church in Ponoka on October 13, 2012. Herman taught us to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like peppermints, blowing milk bubbles, “chickadee-dee-dee”, country music and the Ponoka Parade. Usually the instigator of a practical joke, he surrounded himself with like-minded friends who revelled in equality payback resulting in many stories – better left untold! Grey Cup train anyone?! He lived his life by the “Golden Rule” and championed the underdog. His legacy of caring for others included: pet lover, letter writer extraordinaire, working at AHP for 30 years as a Psychiatric Nurse and committed community supporter. Above all that, he was a faithful, loyal husband and family man. Herman’s laughter and life will be remembered by his wife of 58 years, Jo; his sons David & Arlene, Darrell & Jean Anne, and Doug; his daughters Lori & Rod, Joanne & Brian, and Cheryl & Darren; grandchildren Tanya & Greg, Cara, Carson, Alix & Kurtis, Jennette, Blair, Dustin, Cady, Devin, Dylan, Emily, and Daniel; great-grandson Kieran; Jo’s family – Jackie, and Ole & Marilyn. Herman was predeceased by his parents Roy & Ruby; step-mother Kate; sister-in-law Marilyn; brother-in-law Lorne; daughter-in-law Lorraine; and granddaughter Haley. In memory of Herman and his spirit of giving, donations are gratefully accepted to the Ponoka Wheelchair Van Society.
