Obituary for John A. Nichols, Sr.

STAUNTON – John Alexander Nichols, Sr., 81, of 203 Hudson Ave., died Wednesday, November 21, 2018. 

Born March 27, 1937 in West Augusta, he was a son of Frederick Richard and Anna Belle (Botkin) Nichols.  He graduated from Churchville High School and served in the U. S. Army during the Cold War.  Following his military service, John began his career in the grocery industry, working his way from bagger to store manager to district manager of a retail grocery chain.  After his retirement, he continued to work part-time as a district supervisor and consultant for a local convenience store chain.  John was an avid hunter and enjoyed coming “home” to West Augusta regularly to hunt. 

He was preceded in death by three sisters, Ellen Wiseman, Gladys Edwards and Yvonne Edwards; and two brothers, Robert Nichols and Frederick Nichols, Jr. (“June”).  Surviving are his wife, Sarah (Brock) Nichols; four children, John A. Nichols, Jr. and wife Frances of Oilville, Lisa Bowers and husband Steve of Hadensville, Carolyn Fowler of Fishersville, and Angela Ann Brock of Grottoes; four grandchildren, Dennis Huffstetler, Joshua Fowler, Samantha Fowler and Daryl Miller; and four great-grandchildren, Tyler Huffstetler, Hailey Huffstetler, Kendyl-Jo Varner and Michael Fowler; and a number of nieces and nephews. 

A funeral service will be held 12 noon Saturday, November 24 in the chapel of Bear Funeral Home, officiated by the Rev. Jerry Thomas.  The family will receive friends at the funeral home, one hour prior to the funeral service.  A burial service will be held privately in West Augusta Cemetery.
