Nichols- It is with a deep sense of loss and a profound sense of sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Kevin Lee Nichols, age 52 yrs. of Corunna at South Huron Hospital, Exeter on Sunday August 10, 2014. Much loved husband and best friend of 27 years to Sheila (nee Russell). Dear father of Sarah (Justin) and Craig (Jess) all of Corunna. Loving and proud grandpa of Harper.
