Daryl B. Nichols
Trappers, it is with a heavy heart I bring to you the sad news of the passing of our friend and fellow trapper Daryl Nichols. Daryl served the trappers of Illinois for many years, working as Treasurer for the association, and serving as a director as well. In all total Daryl had over 40+ years of service to the trappers of Illinois, and was one of the first one hundred members in the I.T.A. The trappers of Illinois have lost a good friend & trapper, but heaven has gained a great man……..MG
