Maynard Bryant “Nick” Nickerson, Jr.
SCARBOROUGH -- Maynard Bryant “Nick” Nickerson, Jr., 86, of Waterboro and formerly of Mexico, died on Sept. 29, 2013 at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House. He was the husband of Carol (Bixby) Nickerson.
Nick was born in Mexico on June 29, 1927, a son of the late Maynard B. and Hazel (Bartlett) Nickerson Sr. He attended local area schools and graduated from Mexico High School. He remained a Mexico resident until marrying Carol on April 16, 1994, when they moved to Waterboro.
As a young man, he enjoyed working for the Oakdale Country Club, but spent most of his life working for the former Oxford Paper Co. After his retirement, he went to work part time at Oxford Lanes.
Nick, sometimes affectionately referred to as “Budman” was a member of the American Legion and VFW in Rumford as well as the Waterboro Eagles. He also enjoyed playing cribbage, his trips to Canada, hunting and ice fishing, and was an excellent candlepin bowler. His great joy, however, was spending time out on his boat, whether he was fishing or just relaxing.
Besides his wife of 19 years, Carol, he is survived by two daughters, Linda Davis of South Portland and Janet Sanchez of Gainesville, FL; two step-sons, Elliot Knox of Mexico, and Michael Knox of Turner and a step-daughter, Shelly Richard and her husband, Glen of Waterboro; 10 grandchildren, Allen Davis, Christopher Davis, Jason Sanchez, Michael Davis, Stephen Sanchez and his wife, Yoanys, Zachary Richard, Steven, Travis, Angela and Briana Knox; seven great-grandchildren, Angelina Sanchez-Dow, William Atwell, Angelina Sanchez, Amarra Sanchez, Jennifer and Angel Davis, and Joseph Sanchez; three great-great grandchildren, Owen Swenson, Tristan and Zoe Dow; a brother, Dale Nickerson of Rumford; twin sisters, Brenda Nickerson of Mexico, and Glenda Porter and her husband, Charles of Lake Suzy, FL; and many nieces and nephews.
He also was the grandfather of the late Lacy Richard, who died on November 18, 2012.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a graveside service with military honors to be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday at Pinegrove Cemetery, Route 108 in Canton.
