Tommy Ray Nichols, age 60 of Glade Valley, NC passed away Friday, November 30, 2018 at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital in Elkin, NC.

He was born May 16, 1958 in Alleghany County to James Robert and Gladys Juanita Nichols. Tommy loved life and being with those he loved so much. He always put God first, family second and all his friends run a close second to his family. There will never be another one like him. If he was your friend, he meant every word he ever said to you, and was there for you no matter what. He also would have fought through fire for his two grandsons, Keegan and Ethan, they were the biggest reason he fought this cancer for so long. He will be missed by many, especially his soul mate and wife, Susan of over 40 years of marriage. He is survived by his wife, Susan Nichols of the home; one son, Tim Nichols and wife Angie of Millers Creek; one daughter, Tamarah Moser and husband Christopher of Ennice; two grandchildren, Keegan Moser and Ethan Moser; his parents, James and Gladys Nichols of Sparta; one sister, Betty Lou Williams of Sparta; one brother, Johnny Nichols of Sparta; host of family and friends also survive.
