LAURENS COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – Laurens County Council clerk Betty Walsh confirmed that the Laurens County coroner passed away Monday.

Walsh said that Coroner Nick Nichols died Monday afternoon.

We’re working to learn more details surrounding his death.

Chief Deputy Coroner Vickie Cheek released the following statement:

“We are remembering longtime Laurens County Coroner, F.G. “Nick” Nichols, as a true Southern Gentleman and a friend to so many individuals of this community. He had so much compassion and sensitivity for helping countless families navigate through some of the most difficult times of their lives. Coroner Nichols truly cared about all the people he served. He fought a long and hard battle after having a partial amputation last June, but he never gave up on coming back to his office and serving his county.
