Robert Nicholson, Jr. Obituary

Nicholson, Robert “Bob”, Jr., 61, passed away in Leesburg, Florida, March 1, 2024, after a brief illness due to throat cancer. He had recently moved to Florida to be near his father Robert Nicholson, Sr. and his brother James. However, Bob was definitely a Long Islander all his life. He loved boating, surfing and going to the beach. He grew up in West Islip, New York, and graduated from West Islip High School in 1980. He graduated from Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY in 1984, with a degree in chemical engineering. After college, he lived in Bayshore and Islip, NY and worked for several engineering firms on Long Island, obtaining his Professional Engineering License from the State of New York in 1995. After obtaining his PE license, he started his own company and then continued as a consultant. Bob loved putting his engineering skills to good use. He volunteered his time and scientific expertise in a lawsuit exposing a history of soil and groundwater contamination from coal tar residue left by an old manufactured gas plant in Bayshore. He was fascinated by all things technological and was a master at assembling and reconstructing computers. Bob was proud of his two daughters, Samantha Nicholson-Sarmiento (Gus) and Noah Nicholson. He is also survived by his father, Robert V. Nicholson, Sr., his sisters Linda Howe (Greg), Terese Nicholson, Lani Nicholson (David Stormberg), and Margaret Greenman; and his brother James Nicholson. He was predeceased by his mother Margaret D. Nicholson. The family will receive visitors Thursday, March 21st, 10 am-12 pm, at Arthur F. White Funeral Home, Inc., 234 Broadway, Bethpage.
