Charles J. Nichols

October 19, 1947 — September 13, 2023





Charles J. Nichols, former letter carrier for the U. S. Postal Service, left an indelible mark on the world. Born on October 19, 1947, in Worcester, he passed away on September 13, 2023. Charlie received his bachelor's degree from Northeastern University and had pursued his master's degree from Boston University.

With an insatiable curiosity and unwavering pursuit for knowledge, Charlie was a student of life. No stone was left unturned in his quest for wisdom, and his inquisitive mind led him to explore an array of subjects with passion and enthusiasm. He approached each day with energy and eagerness to learn something new. History fascinated him both as an account of the past and a guide for the future. He recognized the importance of understanding our collective narrative to shape a better tomorrow. Politics held a special place in Charlie's heart, and he was deeply interested in the workings of government and the impact it had on people's lives. Though he possessed a profound intellect, Charlie's eloquence extended beyond his words. He had a way of expressing himself that captivated the attention of those around him. Whether engaging in heartfelt conversations or discussing matters of politics and history, he always spoke passionately.

Adventurous at heart, Charlie loved day trips and exploring new places, seeking out adventures and friendships that expanded his horizons and enriched his spirit. He had a gregarious spirit that thrived in social settings. These moments brought him immense happiness as he reveled in the company of family and lifelong friends. To know Charlie was to recognize his unwavering dedication to making a difference in people's lives.

Born to Alexandra (Natis) and James C. Nichols, Charlie held a deep love for his family. He leaves behind his wife of 51 years, Adrienne M. (Hammar) Nichols, who stood by his side through life's joys and challenges. Charlie was predeceased by his sisters Olga Baltas and Irene Gatsos. His nieces, nephew, great nieces, and great nephews were also beloved members of his family circle, and their memories together will forever cherish the laughter they shared.

We bid farewell to an exceptional individual whose quick wit and clever perspective on life touched the hearts of all fortunate enough to have known him. As we mourn his toss, let us also celebrate the incredible life he lived and take solace in the enduring impact he had on so many. Charlie's legacy will continue to inspire us to embrace curiosity, love passionately, and approach life's adventures with open arms. Charlie, may you rest in eternal peace.  Fay Brother's Funeral Home, 1 West Boylston Street, West Boylston directed funeral arrangements.
