Paul H. Nicholson, 80, died peacefully on January 19, 2023 in Vero Beach, FL, surrounded by his family. He was born in Syracuse, NY and resided there for much of his life. Paul was a graduate of Le Moyne College where he played baseball and earned a degree in Business Administration.
His fun-loving, warm and genuine personality created many lasting friendships wherever he went. Paul made it a priority to maintain the special bonds he had with his lifelong friends and always valued the times they shared together.
Paul loved the outdoors, especially, skiing, boating, fishing and golfing with his family and friends. He enjoyed watching sports, including Syracuse basketball and the Buffalo Bills, but most of all he treasured attending the sporting events of his three grandsons.
He always felt fortunate to have found the job of his dreams as a manufacturer’s representative in the fishing tackle and outdoor industry, which involved frequent travel to various sporting destinations. After retiring, he and his wife spent much of their leisure time traveling throughout the U.S. and abroad. In addition, they lived several months of the year in Vero Beach, FL where they formed many close and wonderful friendships at the Indian River Club.
Paul is survived by his loving wife Jo-Anne of 49 years, his two children, Lindsay and Michael (Casey), three grandsons Ty, Beckham and Campbell, and several nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the VNA Hospice House, 901 37th Street, Vero Beach, FL 32960.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
