Ken was born in Toronto to the late John and Vera Nicholls. He began his working life at Toledo Scale and later found his calling at the Scarborough Fire Department where he worked for 30 years, retiring as acting District Chief. Acting
District Ken Nicholls, Seniority #253, started on the Scarborough Fire Department in March of 1964 and retired at the end of 1993. Ken lived life to the fullest, even attaining his pilot’s license. He enjoyed his retirement filling his time with golfing, boating, gardening, motorcycling, and traveling. He was a great friend to many who were so important to him. Some were like family.
The family would like to thank Dr. Spencer Chau, Dr. Patricia Wong, Dr. Natalie Munn, and the wonderful staff at Butternut Manor for their care and compassion in his final days. Private family interment will take place at a later date.
Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends from all our Fire Fighter Retiree Groups.
