Lenord E. Nicholson Sr., 78, Warsaw, passed away at 9:55 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 26, 2020, in Warsaw at Kosciusko Community Hospital.
Born to Frank O.S. and Dorothea A. (Christensen) Nicholson on July 9, 1942 in Sicklerville, N.J., Lenord spent much of his early life on the east coast. He spent many years as a volunteer firefighter for the Waterford New Jersey Fire Department.
For the past twenty-six years, his family has made their home in Warsaw where he was a longtime member of Touch of Life Church. He enjoyed family time and liked many types of food. He loved the Lord and helping around the church. He also enjoyed music and dancing, even appearing on American Bandstand in his youth. He was retired from Kimble Glass (Owens-Illinois).
On June 8, 1963, he was united in marriage to Elizabeth Gross; she preceded him in passing as did a daughter-in-law, Annette “Netters”; and his brothers: Frank, Carl, Happy, Johnny and an infant brother. He is survived by three children: sons, Mikey and Lenord Jr.(Wendy) and daughter, Barb (Andy) – all of Warsaw; six grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren and three sisters: Christine “Chris,” Janice and Kathy.
