Kenneth J. Nickerson

Kenneth J. Nickerson, 60, died peacefully in Burlington, surrounded by his family on Thursday, August 11, 2011.

Born in Somerville, he was the son of the late Herbert and Barbara Nickerson. He spent the majority of his life as a truck driver for Severance Trucking Company in Woburn, before partially retiring and working as a custodian at the Winthrop Elementary School in Ipswich.  He especially enjoyed his time at Winthrop where he grew close to a number of the students and faculty. In his free time, he loved spending time with family, working outside on his farm, and listening to music from his extensive record collection. He also enjoyed traveling, and set aside time each year to take his wife to Jamaica. He will be remembered by those who knew him as a man who always put others first, and who never shied away from an opportunity to make his peers laugh.

He will be greatly missed by his loving wife Patricia, and his three sons Paul, Nathan and James.

His funeral service will be held Monday August 15 at 1pm in the Immanuel Baptist Church, 45 Central Street, Ipswich. Family and friends are respectfully welcomed. Visiting hours are Sunday 4 to 8 pm in the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home, 6 High Street, Ipswich. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his memory to Ipswich Caring, c/o 31 Hodgkins Drive, Ipswich, MA 01938.
