LAURENS, S.C. (FOX Carolina) -- Coroner Nick Nichols passed away on December 2, according to officials close to him. He was employed by the Laurens County Coroner's Office. 

Officials close to Nichols informed FOX Carolina that he had been having medical issues prior to his passing. 

On Tuesday, Chief Deputy Coroner Vickie Cheek released the following statement regarding Nichols' death: 

We are remembering longtime Laurens County Coroner, F.G. "Nick" Nichols, as a true Southern Gentleman and a friend to so many individuals of this community.  He had so much compassion and sensitivity for helping countless families navigate through some of the most difficult times of their lives. Coroner Nichols truly cared about all the people he served.  He fought a long and hard battle after having a partial amputation last June, but he never gave up on coming back to his office and serving his county. His staff will greatly miss him, and I know the citizens of the county will miss his services.
