    We regret to advise of the death of Lieutenant Warren James "Jim" Nichols (Ret'd), peacefully on 19 June 2018 in the 100th year of his life. Born on a farm on the shores of Chemong Lake north of Peterborough, ON,  Jim served as a Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Engineers during the Second World War when his major work was as a Bomb Disposal Officer.

    After the war, Jim went on to earn an honours BASc degree in Mining Engineering from the University of Toronto and also taught mining engineering there. He then had various jobs in both consulting and engineering that took him to exciting opportunities in both London, England and the various gold mines in and around Johannesburg, South Africa. Jim joined Cyanamid in 1957 where he remained until his retirement in 1983.

    Jim loved life and was a very generous person who thoroughly enjoyed each and every day. He was an avid golfer and played as often as possible and did not slow down in the winter either. He also loved curling and enjoyed both sports as a member of Scarboro Golf and Country Club. He was a member of the Engineers Clubs in Niagara Falls and Montreal.

    Jim's wishes were for a private cremation and interment in Mount Royal Cemetery in Montreal.
