Nichols

Captain Fish, born Frank Thomas Nichols on Jan. 28, 1974, died at the age of 44 years old on June 21, 2018.

Frank was the author of two books: Frankie the Flying Fish Book 1 (Flying Lessons) and Frankie the Flying Fish Book 2. He worked as a pipe fitter and in carpentry and had his own scuba diving business. He had many adventures throughout his life —- traveling Europe, driving his many motorcycles —- but his happiest moments were on or near the water.

One adventure led him sailing across the Gulf of Mexico, calling his mom each night to let her know he was fine. At times he was anything but fine. One day sailing he heard loud explosions in the distance and switched from wind to gas power. With his engine at full speed he raced to where he heard the sounds just to find the military was testing large artillery. He was quickly directed to leave. He left but only to find, soon after, that he blew his engine out.

This is one example of when Frank thought about others over himself and sought to help, only to find himself in need of assistance. Setbacks like this never stopped him from trying to help others.

He leaves behind son Chelan Logan Guyader, mother Colleen Winslow, father Wilson Nichols, sister Jennifer Nichols, brother Andrew Nichols, grandmother Carol Poole and stepfather, Mark Winslow; as well as two nieces Kayla Gran and Zoe Gran, many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.

Frank passed away suddenly from health complications. His celebration of life will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church at 18341 WA-525, in Freeland on July 13, 2018, at 2 p.m.
