Edward G Nicol
02/05/1929 - 06/17/2016

~~Edward G. Nicol passed away peacefully in his sleep at Overlook Hospital on June 17, 2016 at the age of 87. A memorial service will be held at Bradley, Haeberle & Barth Funeral Home, 1100 Pine Avenue, Union on Wednesday, June 22nd. Relatives and friends are invited to visit from 2:00- 4:00 pm. A reception will follow at the Spanish Tavern in Mountainside.

Born in Union, and raised in Irvington and Union where he graduated from Union High School in 1947, Edward has lived in Union for most of his life. He served in the US Army in Korea from 1951 to 1953 where he was awarded the bronze star service medal for meritorious achievement. Edward worked in accounting for the US Postal Service for 38 years. He loved aviation, automobiles, traveling, fishing, history, animals, and gardening. Edward had been a model aviation enthusiast his entire life, and was an active member of the Union Model Airplane Club. He was also a masterful carpenter, and possessed an innate ability to repair and restore anything that was broken with the most meticulous attention to detail. He will be fondly remembered for his gentle nature, honesty, humor, reliability, unpretentiousness, and love and devotion to his family and friends. Edward was soft-spoken, yet confident. He was a man of few words, but when he did speak, he usually made us laugh!

Edward is survived by his wife Inge Nicol of 55 years; two children, Glenn Nicol and Kari Nicol, and Kari’s long-time companion Ted Roxbury, Jr.; as well as his grandson Christopher Nicol; and many loving relatives and friends.
