Online Condolences


  1. Gary was such a kind and gentle soul. He was devoted to his father and the care he needed. Growing up with the all the Nickerson boys I will always remember the fun of kick the can, kick ball and having to be in when the street lights came on. Gary would chase around Freida and Ganda to give us back the can or ball. Often a dong bone would be offered in exchange for the ball. He is now with Marilyn and Velma whom he adored. Rest in peace Gary . Know you will be missed.
