HAROLD "NIC" DEAN NICHOLSEN was born on July 14, 1942 to Terman and Elizabeth (Van Roekel) Nicholsen in Tyler, Minnesota. He was raised on the family farm and grew into the farm life of daily chores, caring for the animals and tending to the crops. Other activities he enjoyed in his youth were putting together jigsaw puzzles and creating landscape ornaments out of wood. Nic attended school in Verdi, Minnesota, and graduated from high school in 1961. Following his education Nic began farming full time with his parents. Throughout his life he worked as a hired man for a number of farmers in the area. He appreciated living a simple life. In December 2021, Nic became a resident at the Edgebrook Care Center in Edgerton, Minnesota where he died peacefully on Monday, September 19, 2022 at the age of 80.
