Obituary for Daniel James Nichols

Daniel James Nichols, 73, of Pleasant Hill, Missouri, passed away at Kansas City Hospice House on Friday, May 24, 2019.

He was born on January 4, 1946 in Fulton, Missouri, the son of the late James B. Nichols and the late Mary Ellen (Yake) Nichols.

Danny was united in marriage to June A. (Jeffrey) Nichols who survives his passing.

Danny attended Rankin Technical College. He worked as a machinist and tool and die maker for many years prior to becoming an FAA certified Airframe and Powerplant mechanic for American Airlines. In his spare time, Danny loved to golf, bowl and fish, especially for bass and trout. He was an avid bicyclist and participated in the MS 150 twice. He also was a fan of wingless sprint car racing. More than anything, he enjoyed time spent with his grandchildren.

Along with his wife, June, Danny is survived by daughter Christine Spencer and her husband Brian; daughter Jennifer Gladden and her husband Charles; son Scott Nichols and his wife Ana; sister Roberta Moore and her husband Harvey; grandchildren, Jordan Woodford, Christopher Woodford, Garrett Gladden, Derek Spencer, Rachel Spencer, Savannah Nichols, and Isabella Nichols; great-grandchild, Persephone Woodford, nieces, Michelle Robbins and Melissa Fischer; great nephew Ryan Oberlag, and great niece Brooke Fischer.
