Jon Nichols Obituary
May 5, 1938 - April 11, 2017 Santa Ana, California-Jon Nichols, 78, passed away Tuesday, April 11, 2017, at home after falling ill with liver cancer in November. He did his best to fight the cancer with dignity and died a peaceful death surrounded by family. He leaves his wife of 30 years, Dim; his daughters, Justine and Adriane; stepdaughter, Annette; grandchildren, Jared, Ashley, Jonah, Zoe, Bella, and Shane; siblings, Sally, Rick, and Bill; and many dear friends. Born in Valparaiso, Indiana, on May 5, 1938, the family caravanned to California when Jon was a young boy, and he remained a lifelong resident of Southern California thereafter. In high school, he sold and delivered newspapers and it may be there that he developed his entrepreneurial spirit. He graduated from Leuzinger High School in Lawndale, California in 1956. He attended El Camino College and later Cal State Long Beach where he met his first wife, Kris who is the mother of his daughters. Early on he worked in teaching and real estate and finally settled into income tax. At his business, Nichols Income Tax, he worked enthusiastically as a tax man for nearly 50 years. He met his wife, Dim, in 1987 and they married in 1989. They were wonderfully compatible and their life together was filled with travel, adventure, friends, and family. He will be dearly missed. Services were held on April 18th at Fairhaven Memorial Park.
