Allenstown, NH - Edward "Ed" Nichols, 83, of Allenstown, NH passed away Monday, August 21st after a hard fought battle with declining health. He was born in Grasmere, NH on December 7, 1933.
He worked as a machinist for most of his career, and upon retirement, he enjoyed part time work as a specialist in a sports shop where he could share his passion for the great outdoors. Ed had a strong love for family and enjoyed many family gatherings. His love for, and skill in, hunting and fishing was shared with family and lifelong friends throughout New England - however he was very careful not to give away all of his secret fishing spots! He was a builder of beautiful hand-set stone walls, king of the "Yankee" bartering system, and lover of animals. He also took great pride and pleasure landscaping and gardening in his yard.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Irene Nichols, of Allenstown, Daughter Debra Nichols and son in law Jon James, of Kittery, ME, Son Edward "Nicky" John Nichols, Jr., of Bow, Brother, Fred and his wife Ruth Nichols, of ME, Sister Mae Arney, of CA, Brother Harry Nichols, of CT, Sister Doris Lesniewski, CT, Brother Albert Nichols, of NC, Brother Paul Nichols, of NH, loving nieces and nephews, as well as many friends he thought of as family.

A graveside service will be held at 2pm on Friday, August 25 at Evans Cemetery, Whiterock Hill Road, Bow, NH. There will be no calling hours.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the American Heart Association, www.heart.org
