Ace Nichols was born on December 14, 1948, and passed April 10, 2023. He was born in St. Anthony, Idaho to Dee Alden Nichols and Martha Hill Nichols. He was married to Wendy Santoro, his wife of 37 years, and they resided in South Ogden, Utah. He became a dad to Kami Lynn Hales (deceased) and Stephanie Jean Hales. Later on he became a Graandpa to Brecklyn Abby Boyer, Boston Thomas, and Tyler Jean Thomas. He had two children from a previous marriage; Lisa Waterman and Heidi Nichols (deceased). As well as three grandchildren and one great-grandchild. He is also leaving behind three sisters, Jackie (Brian Smith), Judy, Becky, one brother, Nick (deceased) and several nieces and nephews.

He and his wife Wendy adopted Ty who was the biggest blessing for them. One of Aces favorite things to do was to play with Ty and her friends as they were growing up an take them ghost hunting. He wanted nothing more than to make sure she had a great childhood and life with anything she needed.

Ace Nichols was the strongest, hardest working, loving, and kindest man we all knew. He truly was the best dad, husband and most devoted grandpa that anyone could've asked for.

He cherished his family and loved going on vacation, boating, camping, riding his Harley, playing with his dogs, laughing and just having fun together with his grandkids.

He was always there for anyone who needed help, and was always the last person to ever ask for it. Ace had a warm personality that made everyone feel safe and happy when they were around him. You could just feel it when you were with him that he was a really good person, and that he really cared. He never let anything get him down. He had great style, amazing hair, and a smile that lit up the room. He knew so much about mechanics and was always fun to be around and showed up for the people he loved, no matter what. Ace was somebody that you could meet once and never forget. There is nobody else like him, and he certainly will never be forgotten.

Per Ace’s request there will not be a viewing, funeral or celebration of life. He asked to have a small graveside service which was held in his honor.
