Glenn (Bud) David Nichols, age 93, of Chatfield, passed away on Monday, January 05, 2015 from complications of pneumonia at St. Mary’s Hospital with his daughter, Amy, by his side. He was born on September 17, 1921 to Robert and Nelva (David) Nichols in Rochester, Minn., the first of their six children. He grew up in Chatfield, Minn. He married LaVerne Stark on July 1, 1940 in Decorah, Iowa. They had four daughters: Glenda, Sharon, Lorna and Kathy. They were later divorced. He was inducted in to the US Army on September 28, 1943 and was a private in the Air Corps. He later received an honorable discharge.

On November 29, 1951, he married Lorraine Nichols in Long Beach, Calif.. Together they raised four daughters: Karen, Cathy, Amy, and Linda and two sons: Robert and Glenn. Lorraine died in June 2001.

Glenn had numerous jobs over the years. Two of his favorites were driving a Greyhound bus in Calif. and traveling the U.S. as an over-the-road trucker for many years. He was also a radio DJ in Oakes, ND, playing the country western music he enjoyed as his children listened from home. He returned his family to his home town of Chatfield in 1969. He enjoyed several years as the city’s dog catcher, going to great lengths to return the pets to their owners or find them new homes. He always said, “The more I know people, the more I love my dog.”

He loved playing card games, cribbage, bingo, and auction sales. After he retired, he discovered a love and talent for wood working and made a variety of keepsakes for his family, which they will treasure. He learned to play the organ in his 70’s and in his 80’s learned to use a computer. He rode his moped around Chatfield until in his late 80’s. He had a difficult time “acting his age”.

Glenn is survived by seven of his daughters: Glenda (Fleming) Garman (Jim) of Tucson, Ariz. and her children, Dawn, John and David; Sharon Teat of Stillwater, Minn. and her children, Michael, Kathy and Sharry; Lorna Smasal (Mike) of Buffalo, Minn. and their children, Robyn and Dennis; Karen Castle (Bill) of Gladstone, Mich. and their daughter, Mitzi; Cathy Finseth of Chetek, Wisc. and her daughters, Jenny and Jessica; Amy Zincke (Dave) of Stewartville, Minn. and their children, Angela and David; Linda Suter (Bob) of Rochester, Minn. and their daughter, Amanda; one son, Glenn Nichols II (Mary) of Chatfield, Minn. and their daughters, Nicole & Sara; and d .....
