Roger Dale Nichols, 70, passed away Wednesday, October 28, 2020. Jesus came and retrieved this big, ole robust mountain of a man and freed him from Covid pneumonia. He was born June 6, 1950 at Baldwyn Hospital to the late Casper Clyde Nichols and the late Virginia Hall Nichols. He was a United States Army Vietnam Veteran. In earlier years, he worked for Verona, Mantachie, and Fulton Police Departments. He was also a deputy for Itawamba Sheriffs Department. He was retired from Tombigbee Electric Power Association after 33 years of service. He was a member of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, Christian Motorcycle Association, Patriot Guard Riders, American Legion, and VFW. A family man of many talents whether it be bass fishing, bowling, or golfing and had a special gift of gab. He shared unconditional love with his dog and faithful companion, Barkley. Everyone in the area would see a pink golf cart with Barkley sitting high on back, with her master at the wheel. These two were known far and wide. His favorite places were: The Outpost Restaurant in Pickwick, TN, Fulton Country club, and Dulaney's Grocery, hanging with his many friends. He had a love of Harley Davidson motorcycles and is probably riding one up in Heaven today.
Survivors include his wife of 33 years, Ann Mabus Nichols of Fulton; son, Christopher Blake Adams; sisters: Mae Humble of Nettleton, Janie Kimble of Calhoun, LA, and Melissa Turner of Booneville; many nieces and nephews.
