A Resolution to Honor the Life and Contributions of Mr. Joseph V. Nicholas
Where as Mr. Joseph V. Nicholas has been a notable servant in this community since 1998,
Where as Joseph Nicholas came to represent the virtues of high ethics, sound character and professionalism in all his civic duties,
Where as “Nick” was noble in his quest for human rights and compelled us all to “never give up on a worthy fight”,
Where as he thrived on building partnerships with students, non-profit organizations and faith-based communities as a way to strengthen ties towards seeking harmony,
Where as his work was varied from judging Martin Luther King, Jr. student essay speeches, keynoting talks to his colleagues of the Masonic Order locally and regionally to actively serving on committees too numerous to list including President of Ogden Utah’s Branch of NAACP and appointed member of Governor’s Gary Herbert’s state Martin Luther King, Jr. Human Rights Commission.
Be it resolved and known to all that Mr. Joseph V. Nicholas has labored in this community in a memorable manner as we pray that God has stretched his loving arms toward him saying “… WELL DONE MY GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT”.
Blessing to the Community he served and the family he belongs.
