The Loss of a Spiritual Father

David Nicholas  1931-2011

This morning I received the stunning and sad news that David Nicholas had gone to be with the Lord. Dave had a great impact on my life since I served on the staff of Spanish River Presbyterian Church back in 1978. Here is the email I received:

The Loss of a Spiritual Father

January 26th, 2011

Dear Chip,

It is with a heavy heart that we report that a little after 9:00 p.m. est., January 25th, David Nicholas went home to be with the Lord. It was his 60th birthday, in the Lord.

He leaves behind his wife and lifelong partner in the Lord's work, Eleanor Nicholas and all those who knew him as their spiritual father. David is now in the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

David will be missed terribly here, but his legacy of preaching the Bad News and Good News Gospel will live on in the countless lives that have been touched by his faithful sharing of his Christian faith.

As we have more information regarding his final arrangements, we will make them known to you.
