Jack Donald Nichols, of Cambridge, formerly of Braham and Mountain Iron, passed away on Sunday, July 26, 2020 at GracePointe Crossing in Cambridge. He was 74 years old.

Jack was born on July 22, 1946 in Mora, Minnesota to parents Leslie and Lillian (Jozen) Nichols. He grew up on the family farm near Braham and attended Braham Schools. After High School, Jack traveled to the west coast where he served in the merchant marine for a few years. Jack eventually returned to Minnesota, settling in the Hibbing / Mountain Iron area. He spent his career working as a carpenter building houses. When Jack’s health began to decline, he moved to Braham to be near his sisters and then later to GracePointe Crossing in Cambridge where he spent his final years.

Jack enjoyed deer hunting season in the fall with family and friends. He was an avid collector of rocks, and polished and sold agates he found. He was a talented woodworker and took great pride in anything he made. Jack enjoyed collecting all types of hats and was almost never seen with a hat on his head.

Jack is preceded in death by his parents, brother Stanley “Nick”, and brother-in-law Max Erbstoesser.

Jack is survived by his sisters, Mary Erbstoesster and Carol (Walter) Nelson of Braham; sister-in-law Joann Nichols of Page, Arizona; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
