Gary Nichols | Obituary

We are sad to announce the passing of Gary Nichols on October 10, 2023. Gary died peacefully with his daughters by his side.

Gary worked as a technician for WA State Patrol, United Airlines, and the University of Washington Department of Bioengineering.

Gary’s interests included classical music, computers, vegetable gardening, flying, and Scandinavian folk music and dancing, which led him to meeting Christine Noah. Gary and Chris married in 1977 and had two daughters, Katy in 1985 and Josy in 1988. After Chris died in 1990, Gary retired to raise his daughters.

Gary is survived by his daughters Kathryn Egan (Bryan) of Redmond and Josann Nichols of Seattle; his sister Nancy Demmitt (Dallas) of Gilbert Arizona; his sisters-in-law, Barbara Noah and Judy Noah; his nieces, Grace Takashima, Lori Lambert, Beth Oliver; and his great niblings Luke, Josh, Zach, Sophia, and Lily.

A Celebration of Gary’s life will be held sometime in 2024, as he wanted a party, not sadness!
