Paul N. Nichola – Warwick

Paul N. Nichola, 69, of Warwick, died Thursday, February 18, 2021, at Rhode Island Hospital, Providence.

He was the beloved husband of Lillian N. Berger. Born in Pawtucket, a son of the late Nicholas P. and Betty (Barac) Nichola, he was raised in Central Falls, and had lived in Warwick for the past 38 years.

A graduate of Central Falls High School, he furthered his education at Providence College School of Continuing Education. He had been employed at Osram Sylvania in Central Falls, until illness forced his early retirement.

Besides his wife, he is survived by his sister, Constance “Connie” Crowley of Cumberland, his sister and brother-in-law, Susan and Jerry V. Jorge, of Lahaina, Hawaii, formerly of Lincoln, his brother, Peter S. Nichola of Trenton, N.J., and his cherished nephews, Jeffery R. Jorge and Brian N.
