Kenneth Martin Nichols passed away surrounded by family on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. He was born in St Charles, MN on September 11, 1939 to Marvin and Leona (Rinn) Nichols.

Ken had fond memories of working on his uncle’s farm during summers when he was a teenager. After high school, he served in the US Army and Wisconsin National Guard.

Ken married the love of his life Kathryn Schuppel on March 17th, 1962 in Onalaska, WI. They celebrated 58 years of marriage last month.

A natural salesman, Ken was co-owner in multiple businesses including Exterior Home Designs in Holmen.

He was avid Packer fan and enjoyed golfing, being captain of his pontoon boat, fishing and playing cards with his many friends. He was known for hosting a fun safety meeting and was affectionately known as “Chief” when hosting Christmas pool tournaments.

Ken was a cherished husband, father and grandfather. He is survived by his loving wife Kathy; his four sons, Dan (Sandy), Chris, Randy (Sheri), and Chuck (Tammy) and nine grandchildren; Matthew, Lucas, Jacob, Derek, Erica, Zach, Erin, Ben (Abby) and Charlie Jr. He is further survived by two brothers; Arvard (Beryl), and Roger as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family. He was preceded in death by his parents, bothers Beauford “Butch” (Terri), LaVerne “Jim” and Harold “Harry” (Cyndy) Nichols.
