Nicol, age 97, a life resident of Union County, died on Veteran’s Day, Wednesday, November 11, 2020.  A graduate of Union Local High School and Franklin University, he was a decorated veteran of the United States Army.  He served in the Pacific Theater during World War II. A certified public accountant, he retired from Ernst & Young in Columbus where he was associated for almost 40 years. A truly Christian man who was devoted to his church, he was a member of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church where he participated in the choir, was an usher and served in other capacities throughout the years. Known as a “renaissance” man, he held multiple artistic talents. He expressed his creativity through painting, woodworking and designing and contracting in the building of his own home. He liked gardening and “weekend” farming at the Nicol family homestead. For many years, he and his wife traveled annually with their family for fun, history and education. He cherished spending time with his large extended family for reunions and holidays. He was born April 30, 1923 in Chuckery, Ohio to the late Herman and Meta Knust Nicol.  He was also preceded in death by his brother Truman Nicol; his infant sister, Olga Nicol; his brothers-and sisters-in-law, Harry and Frances Scheiderer, Roy and Berdetta Scheiderer, Frieda and Herman Nicol, Norma and Martin Burns, Edgar Scheiderer, Helen and Harry Evans and Lorna Scheiderer and other cherished family members.  He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Gertrude N.
