Kenneth Nichols

April 23, 2021


Kenneth Gene Nichols, age 67, of Fulton, Ohio died Friday, April 23, 2021 at The Ohio State University James Cancer Hospital.  Known as Kenny to family and friends, he loved working on cars and planting flowers. He lived his life the best he could- took everything “one step at a time,” believed in kindness to all and lived a simple life. In Kenny’s last days he said, “feels like I have lived two lives and I don’t have any regrets.” Kenny was an avid Harry Potter fan and could often be found watching the movies with his daughter which he would quote while watching.  He had a big heart and was like a big teddy bear.


Daddy, I will love you always. My heart will never be the same without you.  I will remember you in all my fond memories. You will always be my Hagrid. My wand is up for you… until we meet again you will live on in my heart… Always. – Amanda


Kenny, I will love you always.  -Love, Mom


Uncle Kenny was a man who absolutely loved his daughter more than life itself.  He fell in love with her from the day she was born and she became his reason to live. His daughter, Amanda, will always carry his essence through her caring nature, intellect and kind spirit.  Kenny will live on forever through her.  He will be truly missed but never forgotten.  We love you always.  -Christen


Kenny was born April 12, 1954 in Columbus to his mother, Patricia Jean (Hurlburt) Nichols, who resides in Newark, and his late father, George Junior Nichols.

The family will receive friends beginning at 12 noon on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at Underwood Funeral Home.  A funeral procession will form at 1:30 p.m. and proceed to Oakdale Cemetery for a 2 p.m. graveside service.
