Jeffrey Carl Nichols, 38, unexpectedly passed away Friday July 2, 2021 at his home in Central. A committed & loving husband to Brittany Stancil Nichols, youngest son to Gilbert Gordon Nichols Jr. And Angelina Hamill Nichols (Central), was born in Oconee County.
Jeffrey was a jack of all trades – he enjoyed most anything that found him outdoors, although his true niche was as an automotive & small engine mechanic. He beamed confidence as he would diagnose & repair a car, only by hearing it. He had many hobbies and interests, such as cooking, going camping, fishing, Georgia football, baseball, and poetry. His true passions after his family were to restoring old Jeeps, music, and he was most at home in a lake; if he managed to find water, it was near impossible to get him back out. He also loved a well landed prank every now and again, as long as it wasn't him being pranked ultimately.
In addition to his wife and parents, surviving Jeffrey are a son, Luke Stephens of Anderson, and daughters Izzabella Burton & Lauren Nichols of the home. Mr. Nichols was an amazing & dedicated father. A brother - Brian Nichols of Central (Paula); sisters Jennifer Edwards of Central (Andy), Kimberly Lance of Piedmont (Wendall), & Sherry Stancil all of Six Mile. He had nieces Katelyn Nichols, Sarah Nichols, & Hailey Moore, all of Six Mile; as well as nephews Wyatt Lance of Piedmont, Remington Haygood & Lawson Schronce both of Six Mile. All of which he adored beyond measure.
Jeffrey was predeceased by both sets of his grandparents. Gilbert Gordon Nichols Sr. & Ruby Madaris Nichols of Pensacola FL; and Henry Carl Hamill Jr & Carrie Cayton Hamill of Rossville, GA.
