John and Tom, It was indeed a gift in my life when I got to work with your Dad in the fund raising efforts for the Hutton Fieldhouse at Hamline several years ago. From that time forward he always included me in the regular game/lunch/gatherings of his group of Hamline players from years gone by. Just sitting back and listening to the old stories, legends, lore and bantering was indeed a treat! I was truly Blessed to know this consummate gentlemen. He will always be in my heart. My prayers to you during the days that lie ahead.

I remember watching Mr. Mikkelsen play basketball on television in the early 1950's. He was a great player. May your family be comforted by the LORD in this time of sadness.

John, I am so sorry to hear about this. I know how much you loved him. After reading about him and especially his quote about life in the obituary, I can see why. Seems like he was a unique individual. Praying for your family...

Though I never met Mr. Nikkelsen, I love this man; not only because he was such a great basketball player but also because he had such great appreciation for the gift of life and knew how to find some positiveness in whatever obstacle he faced. A great man and a great ball player who will be dearly missed! I am so sorry for your loss. As you reminisce over the good times that you shared with him, remember to draw close to God for comfort and he will respond Abundantly to your request.
