J.W. Nicholson (FN 40-43).


John Nicholson died in September 2016. He was very proud of being a St Beghian and his old school tie was a treasured possession throughout his life. Following national service in the RAF, he qualified as a chartered accountant in 1949 before marrying Elizabeth in 1950. They had three children and subsequently eight grandchildren. For seventeen years he was with C.A. Parsons & Co eventually becoming Head of Management Services and then a Director, first with Northern Engineering Industries and then the Anglo Great Lakes Company (part of Rolls Royce) from where he retired in 1984. All his life he was a keen golfer (with an enviable handicap of 6/8), latterly at the Northumberland Golf Club.
