Norway - Edward “Nick” A. Nickerson, 74, went home to be with the Lord on Aug. 5, 2018, following a long illness. He was born on Jan. 29, 1944, in Dover-Foxcroft to Austin and Doris Nickerson.
He graduated from Foxcroft Academy in 1963 and married his wife, Susan Strout on Aug. 7, 1976. Nick loved their log home on Marr Pond in Sangerville and enjoyed listening to the call of the loons with his wife and daughter, Jenni. In 2011, he and Susan relocated to Western Maine to be closer to their daughter and her family. As a mason, he built many fireplaces and was known for his “creative” stone work. Employed at a local school district as an educational technician, Nick enjoyed working with the students. He was a former registered Maine guide and a Hunter Safety instructor. Spending time with his family and fishing and hunting with his brothers and son-in-law, were cherished times. As a proud grandfather, his grandchildren were very important to him. Nick was a past member of the Dover-Foxcroft Living Word Assembly of God Church for over 30 years. His service as a deacon was rewarding to him because he wanted to help others. He will be sadly missed.
Edward was predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his wife Susan of 42 years; their daughter, Jenni; and son-in-law, Jeff Padgett; and their children: Jake, Jonah, Juliese, and Joelle; his brothers: David, Larry, Alan, John and their families; and his sister, Carol Falconer, and her family; his brother-in-law Stephen Strout, and wife Morelle, and their families.
The family appreciates those who cared for their loved one and supported them from Market Square Healthcare facility of South Paris and One Beacon Hospice.
