William Mitchell Nickel, Jr. "Billy" 63 of Philadelphia passed away on August 2, 2021. Loving father of Lyndsay. E. Mahalis (Mike) and Michael W. Nickel (Arielle Swenson). Pop-Pop of Harlow Mahalis. Dear son of Mary McClernon and the late William M. Nickel, Sr. Brother of Jeanette Steiner (Peter), Debra Keller (David) and the late Nancy Nickel.

After his time in the United States Air Force, Bill spent his life as a truck driver, father and friend. He enjoyed music, traveling and cheering (or booing) the Philadelphia Eagles. As friends and family can attest, Bill's sense of humor was second to none. His contagious energy will have an everlasting mark on all of us. His love for his children and granddaughter will remain his greatest legacy of all.
