Milton E. “Milt” Nichols, 73, of Bradford, PA, passed away Tuesday, March 31, 2015 at Buffalo General Hospital in Buffalo, NY.

Born April 3, 1941 in Bradford, he was a son of the late Howard and Dora (Woodruff) Nichols. On October 5, 1963 he married Winifred “Gay” (Thomas) Nichols, who survives.
Vietnam Veteran

A 1959 graduate of Bradford High School, he began his career at Corning Glass Works. In 1966 he began his military service with the United States Air Force. Milt served during Vietnam as an Airborne Early Warning Radar Technician where he performed in-flight repairs and electronic systems maintenance. He was cited for meritorious achievement and among other honors was awarded an Air Medal by direction of The President of The United States for completing important missions under extremely hazardous conditions. He was honorably discharged in 1969. He was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

After Milt’s military service, he began working for Pennsylvania Electric Company.

He also held positions writing technical and training documentation. He retired from Bechtel in December 2003 as an Emergency Management Department consultant for the Nevada Test Site in Las Vegas.

He was an avid automobile and aviation enthusiast and trained as a personal aircraft pilot. He also enjoyed home repair projects. He was quick to laugh and a joy to be around. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
