Jack was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting and trap shooting. He started Nichols Brothers Collision over 50 years ago. Jack had an incredible work ethic, matched only by the love he had for his family. He had a quick wit, and always had a story or joke to brighten every coffee break or gathering.
