Reed Francis Gabriel Nichols, 40, of Augusta, Georgia passed away unexpectedly in his brother's home on June 6 due to complication of chronic sleep apnea. Reed is formerly from Cortland and was here visiting family and friends. He has been living in Augusta, Georgia for the past several years with the two loves of his life, partner Nicole Snell and his beautiful 3 year old daughter Everly. Reed was born in Cortland, NY on March 9, 1981. He attended Groton Schools and for the past 18 years has worked in the telecommunications field. He was very good at his job and climbed the ladder quickly. He was a good provider for his family and well respected at his job. The other loves in Reed's life were football and basketball. He became a Miami Dolphin fan at a young age and remained a loyal fan until his death! The Syracuse Orangemen were his favorite basketball team. He never missed a game and usually had Everly by his side cheering them on. Despite many hardships in Reed's life he was joyful and happy with the thing he wanted most, a family. He was a wonderful father and a loving, thoughtful and kind companion to Nikki. He was a gentle soul.
