Kenneth Dwayne Nicklin went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on July 7, 2016. Dwayne was born in Houston, Texas on February 28, 1956. He enjoyed managing movie theaters after graduating from Jesse Jones High School in Houston. These included the Galleria, Gulfgate, and Meyerland Cinemas in the greater Houston area. Later Dwayne went to work for Union Texas Petroleum. After UTP was acquired by ARCO in 1998, Dwayne moved on and spent several years working for Centerpoint Energy. Following his work at Centerpoint, he continued his career with DCP Midstream as a senior tax analyst. Dwayne was honored to be the President of the Oklahoma Association of Tax Representatives from 2009 - 2010. His assigned territory at the time included Oklahoma as well as several other states that were part of his designated geographic area for pipeline property tax value assessments.

On a personal note, Dwayne loved people and believed in service to others. In 2006 he went on his first mission trip to Ukraine and quickly became passionate about sharing God's love with the Ukrainian people through English language evangelistic events, participating as a team member for Michael Gott International Ministries. He returned to Eastern Europe seven times over the next ten years during his vacation time from work to be a part of this ministry.

Dwayne was a family man and enjoyed being with friends, too, many of whom were lifelong friends that he had known since his childhood. He is preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Clara Nicklin and more recently, his father-in-law, J. Alton Enloe who passed away in 2014. Dwayne is survived by his wife Sonia Nicklin, stepson Jason Holden, daughter in law Whitney Holden, and grandson Lee Holden. Dwayne's extended family members include many relatives in West Frankfort, IL, Alexandria and Baton Rouge, LA, Austin, TX, and numerous friends worldwide. A celebration of his life will be held at West Conroe Baptist Church, 1855 Longmire Road in Conroe, TX on Monday, July 11th at 6:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, it is requested that gifts be donated to Michael Gott International Ministries for the purpose of continuing evangelistic efforts in presenting the Gospel in Ukraine and other Eastern European countries.
