SATURDAY, JULY, 1983
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, V.I.
A TRIBUTE TO JILL NICHOLSON
When he was ill, together we prayed
Humble confessions to God he made
He bore his affliction with content
Being very careful not to lament.
He never cried out, "enough, enough"
He knew the road to Heaven was rough.
Very loving and kindhearted was he
'Twas a pleasure to be in his company.
We loved him much, God loves him more
He will lead him to that beautiful shore.
Nevermore to suffer, no cause to cry
Take care, we will meet you by and by.
Jill was my neighbor and friend, and I knew him in a special
and personal way.
May he rest in peace.

JUILE HERMAN NICHOLSON was
born on September 1, 1926 in St.
Thomas, V.I., the fourth child of a
family of six, to Ferdinand A. Nich-
olson, Sr. and his wife, the late Julia
A. Nicholson, nee Senior. Juile grew
up in St. Thomas and attended the
Sts. Peter & Paul School.
In 1943, the wanderlust in Juile,
and a desire to see the world led him
to leave St. Thomas and join the U.S.
Merchant Marines in which he served
until mid-1946: In June 1946, he en-
listed in the U.S. Navy and it was here B
that he made his career of 23 years,
retiring in June 1969. During those 23 years, J uile served in many trusted
positions working his way through the ranks and retiring with the grade
Boiler Tender I. Never one to sit still, he advanced his career through
correspondence courses and received many certificates of merit for his
work as he travelled around the world. He was the proud recepient of
the National Defense Service Medal (second award), the Good Conduct
Medal (third award), Bronze Star, and the Good Conduct Certificate
(third award). He served his country with fidelity and fervor.
His love of country and dedication to the ideals of service continued
into his retirement and was manifested in his membership in the Clar-
ence Van Beverhoudt Post 130 of the American Legion, the U.S.
Naval Reserve and the 20 year Veterans Organization where he worked
for the extension of veterans benefits. Who can forget the familiar
figure of Juile as he marched proudly with the reserves, at the head of
all our community parades, or at the funeral of a comrade?
On his return home in 1969 with his wife, Mary and their children,
Juile was employed at the Virgin Islands Water & Power Auithority
as a foreman in the Boiler Section until 1975. In 1978 he joined the
staff of the Utilities Division of the Virgin Islands Department of Pub-
lic Works as a mechanical engineer. This post he held until ill health
forced his retirement in 1981.
For Juile, life was for living and loving. This he did with a zeal that
made him a favorite with family and friends. He made friends and kept
them through life. Even when illness threatened his happy-go-lucky
manner, he smiled. When the end came on June 27, 1983, Juile had
carved for himself a place in the hearts of many.
To his wife Mary, their three children and other family members:
May you be comforted in the knowledge that Juile was loved by many
and will be truly missed as a friend.
