Dear Deb, I am so sorry to hear that your Dad has passed away.My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very difficult time. He is in God's embrace, now, and watching over all of you. I met your father a few times when I lived in Perrysburg and it was very evident that he was such a wonderful man who had an amazing sense of humor, was kind, loving, and very proud of his daughter..you. God Bless you all, Deb.

The Nichols family has played a very special place in our hearts for many years. We love all of you and are praying for your family. Your father was a very special man and he had a special sense of humor that can never be replaced but you will always remember that. He is at peace now and your hearts are full of the loss but relief knowing he is with the Lord. You will always look back and remember all that he has given each and everyone of you with the love that he wanted you all to remember. You all are very special just like he was and he knew that. Our thoughts are with you always and our love also. May you take each other and hold each other. We love you and pray that all of you can find it in your hearts to remember all of the love and laughter that he wanted you to have after his passing. You are very giving and caring people just like your father wanted you to be and your parents did instill that into you as their legacy, just as every parent tries to. The love was and always will be there as they have wanted. Love you alot....

Shirley and family,
I had the privilege of having Robert Nichols as my teacher and my principal at Glenwood Elementary School. I had the utmost of respect for him as a teacher and as an administrator. He always seemed to lead by example. He enjoyed teaching and was a role model for his students, demonstrating his values for high standards, hard work, and striving for achievement and success. Along with his mantra of having high expectations for his students, he was able to demonstrate compassion, equity and the ability to find humor in the simplest of things in life. I still recall the twinkle in his eye when he was telling a joke or laughing with someone.

I truly believe that he had a positive influence on the careers and lives of the many students he interacted with. I value the lessons he taught me.

My deepest sympathy goes to his family.
