James A. Nicholas
James A. Nicholas, 93 of Portland died Friday, July 15, 2011 at Fallbrook Woods.  
 
Jim was born in Portland Maine on February 4, 1918. He was the son of Kiriakitsa (Apostolon) and John Nicholas who immigrated from Greece. Jim was one of six children: Ida (Nicholas) Paskaleides, Rose (Nicholas) Murphy, Nicholas J. Nicholas, Paul Nicholas, and Peter Nicholas. Jim graduated from Portland High School and Bowdoin College.  He attended Boston University Law School.

During World War II he flew 21 fueling missions between India and China. He was both a navigator and a pilot.  While a student in his second year at BU law school his father became very Ill and he came back to Portland to take over operations of his father's cabinet shop. During this time, he discovered his love of woodwork and craftsmanship. He had a superb, unique ability to make fine furnishings and he loved to work with his hands. As a result, he did not return to law school. However, he remained an ardent intellectual and a life-long learner. Many times he read a book a day. His favorite topic was history, especially President Abraham Lincoln and a fellow Bowdoin alumna, Joshua Chamberlain. He also enjoyed the outdoors, especially walking, fishing and canoeing.

Jim leaves his companion, Jane Ann Nicholas, his sister-in-law Vrysula (Coucouvitis) Nicholas, and the following nieces and nephews: Nick Nicholas, Peter Nicholas, Suzy Johnson, and Sally, Janet Nicholas, Donald Nicholas, and Mary Ann Murphy and Daniel Murphy and their spouses and children.
