November 30, 1983 - May 13, 2021
Brian Christopher Nicholson departed this life at the age of 37, on May 13, 2021 in Greensboro, North Carolina. He was born November 30, 1983 in Princeton, New Jersey, and was the loving son of Susan and James Nicholson, and beloved brother of Russell Nicholson. Brian was lively, intelligent, and would consistently amaze us with the things he knew. When something captured his interest, he would dive in and spend countless hours learning—as a result he could hold court on a wide range of topics including all kinds of music (from jazz to punk), sports (from college football to tennis), history, politics and more. He was also impossible not to like. He had many friends who remember him fondly and who will miss his sense of humor and his kindness. He was a gentle spirit and loved animals. Well, maybe not birds. One of his parents’ favorite memories is Brian at two years old, walking into a field of geese at a New Jersey corporate park and by the time he finished marching toward every bird he could find, the geese were nowhere to be found. He loved many cats during his years in North Carolina, but foremost in his heart was Dempsey, who most certainly misses his friend Brian. Brian attended Ridgewood High School in Ridgewood, New Jersey, as did his brother, Russell. The brothers were close as children—Russell has fond memories of his brother's imagination and creativity and the unique games/activities he would think up. When playing video games, Russell would even be content to watch his big brother play for hours just because of the meticulous, thoughtful way he approached a story or task. After high school, life brought Brian to North Carolina where he worked in sales and e-commerce. Despite the geographical distance, the two kept a friendship as adults built on mutual respect and a shared sense of humor. Brian leaves a hole in the hearts of his immediate family, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends, a hole which we will all attempt to fill with loving remembrances of our all too short time with him. We will miss him dearly, but at the same time feel lucky to have had his presence in our lives.
