Van Joseph Nichols, age 74, better known to his loved ones as “Joe” and “Poochie”, died January 18, 2020, surrounded by his devoted and loving family after a long illness due to Agent Orange exposure.

Van served our country honorably as a sergeant in the Army. He fought on the front lines in the Vietnam War and was a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal. He worked at Sikorsky Aircraft until his illness. He was a lifetime member of the Veterans Korean, Vietnam & Saudi Wars Greater Hartford Chapter #1. Van was the most unselfish and kind husband, father, and grandfather and he showed us his love every day.

Van leaves behind his beloved wife of 40 years, Diane Rowe-Nichols; his mother, Josephine Senitio Farr; his two devoted daughters, Sabrina Nichols (Jose Aquino) and Brittany Nichols of Stratford; three grandchildren, Vincent, Gianna, and Anthony, who proudly called him Grandpa Joe; his father-in-law, Joseph A. Rowe Sr. (Ginger); his siblings, Marion Edward Farr (LaVerne), Helen Farr Patterson, Michelle Lynn Farr Munson, and Michael Matthews (Rose); and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
