Roland James Nickle

Roland James Nickle, age 80, born June 23, 1941, passed away September 16, 2021. He was born to Clement Riley and Lily Leah Nickle in the old Cottonwood Maternity Hospital in Murray, Utah. He attended schools in Sandy, Utah, graduating from Jordan High School in 1959. He served in the Army Reserves. He filled a mission for the LDS church in the Northern States. He married Christina Newton February 7, 1963 in the Manti Temple. They are the parents of Diana (Cary) Ripplinger, Mark (Stacie) Nickle, Michael Nickle, Jennifer (Ron) Decker.

Roland was gifted in the ability to use his hands to repair and build and increase the usage of machines and homes. He was employed at L.H. Strong in Salt Lake City in his younger adult years and at Utah State University in Logan for 23 years. After he retired, he served a full-time mission with his wife in the Florida Tallahassee mission. Upon their return, he went to work at Williamsburg Inn in Logan doing building maintenance, which he loved, and mourned his loss when he retired. He and his family moved to Richmond, Utah 42 years ago, a place that was “home” to them all.

He is survived by his wife and children, 21 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren with 2 on the way. He is survived by his siblings Clement Nickle, Richard Nickle, Barbara Handsek, and Jolynne Weaver. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sisters, Darlene Morrill and Carma Lund.

Chris and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Heaven gained another Christlike soul. He was always kind, friendly and helpful. I loved seeing him help you Chris whether it was carrying your bags, picking you up at the library etc. He is a good man. I know you are missing him a ton. May you all be comforted to know he is free from pain and will be watching over you! We love you!

Uncle Roland was always an inspiration to me. He will be missed by all of us here on earth, but I am sure he is very happy being with the Lord, his parents, and his sisters in heaven! We love Chris and all of the family and send our best wishes to them. We love you Uncle Roland.

Roland was the epitome of humility and greatness at the same time. I always loved his attitude about life. My association with him in HP Quorum will be held in fond memory. His testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ was always evident in everything he did and said.
