Obituary of Alfred Nichols

Alfred Nichols, 83, of Little River, SC, formerly of Morgantown, passed away suddenly while working in his yard at home. He was born on July 9, 1936 in Morgantown, WV, son of the late Samuel Lucas Nichols and Della (Corulli) Nichols. Alfred graduated from Morgantown High School, attended WVU and went on to serve in the United States Air Force. Al moved to Myrtle Beach, SC, in the late ‘70s where he was the proprietor of several businesses including a commercial real estate company; several restaurants; a commercial linen service; a restaurant kitchen designer and as a retailer of new and used restaurant equipment. Al was a genuine, generous, and loving family man. He loved his family and extended family more than anything and his real joy was the time spent in the kitchen or around the table with his loved ones sharing family recipes and traditions along with great food, drink, and stories of days gone by and days yet to come; a family practice instilled in him from his parents. He inevitable leaves a large void in our family’s traditions and will be deeply missed by all who knew him, his warmth, and his strikingly infectious smile. He is survived by his loving wife, Marsha (Schuster) Nichols; daughters, Monica Nichols and Andrea Coleman and husband, Mathew, of whom both daughters reside along with their children in Cary, NC; grandchildren, Emilie, Andrew and Daniel Coleman; sister, Mary and brother-in-law, Dewey “Smith” Hastings, of Morgantown; several nieces, nephews and several great nieces and great nephews also survive. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by a brother Samuel Lucas Nichols Jr. and his nephew Samuel Lucas Nichols III (Sammy). Cremation services were provided in South Carolina he will be laid to rest alongside his family at East Oak Grove cemetery at a date to be announced.
