John Nicholson

August 27, 1969 — September 11, 2020

John Robert Nicholson, the son of Richard “Rick” Rowland and Linda Ann (Boyer) Nicholson, was born on August 27, 1969, in Corning, Iowa.  John entered eternal rest Friday, September 11, 2020, at his home at the age of fifty-one years.
 John graduated from Corning High School. On May 15, 1993, John married Angela Marie Higgins at his parent’s house in Corning. Two children: Dalton and Dallas blessed this union. John was a lifelong farmer. He and his family operated a dairy farm for many years and he later had a herd of stock cows. In addition to raising livestock he grew corn, soybeans, and hay. Later in life he operated a hay grinder for Rick Jackson. 
John enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, who were his pride and joy. He liked to cruise and check on crops. He never knew a stranger and was a person who you could always count on for a good laugh.
