Obituary

Brian K. Nichols, 65, of Mt. Vernon, Indiana, passed away on February 15, 2022. Brian was born in Evansville, IN October 12, 1955, to Ruth Ann Compton Nichols and Robert Nichols.

 As a child, the family moved to Evanston, IL where his brother Eric was born. Years later the family moved to Denver, CO where his sister Lisa was born. Brian remained in Denver as a young man as the family moved to Indiana. Brian worked odd jobs to support himself and eventually earned his CDL and started driving for Bodington Lumber in Cheyenne, WY for many years. Years later he found his life place in Mt. Vernon where his love, Teresa Jarred, and her family shared many happy memories together as well with his St. Johns family and many more friends.

Brian is survived by his sister, Lisa (Bill) Burke; brother, Eric Nichols; Aunt Jerry McDonald; cousin, Jan Smith; niece, Mariah Nichols, and several cousins. He is preceded in death by his mother at a young age, father, brothers, Arthur, who passed away last week, and Alan.

Brian worked for GE/Sabic for years retiring in October 2021, and earned his Associate’s degree while working at Sabic. Brian was a passionate, curious, intelligent, kind soul. He had hardships to survive as a young person but achieved success and enjoyment out of life. He rekindled his relationship with the Lord and found profound peace. Brian was an avid learner, enjoyed fishing, the outdoors, and the finer things in life. He was loved and will be greatly missed. Godspeed brother.
