It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Frank Nickel of Edmond, Oklahoma, on Monday, December 27,2021 at the age of 59.

He graduated from El Reno High School then went on to Southwestern Oklahoma State University where he graduated with a Bachelors in Physics Engineering and a minor in both mathematics and music. He lived in New Mexico where he worked for BDM as a research scientist.  He then returned to Oklahoma and worked for Ditch Witch in their Research and Development Department. He later joined Navico, working with the sonar team. He was working at ATC as an engineer at the time of his death. Throughout his work history he had over 40 patents. He enjoyed working with his hands fixing things, scuba diving, motorcycles, & calculators. He enjoyed learning and teaching everyone he knew about math and physics.  He was the smartest man most of us have ever known but he would not say that himself, as he was humble.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Karri (Anderson) Nickel, son Drey Nickel, daughter Bria Nickel, step-daughter Annamarie (Daniel) Douglas, and grandchildren Bentley and Lincoln.
