James Buren Nichols, a longtime resident of Selma, AL, died on Monday, December 18, 2023, at his home. He was born on January 30, 1945, and was a lifelong member of the First Presbyterian Church (now Cornerstone Presbyterian), where he served as an elder in the Presbyterian Church, USA.

He is survived by his wife, Becky, a sister, Holly Schiffer (of Prattville), and a host of nephews, nieces, longtime friends, and adopted family.
