Nicholas Todd "Nick" Dickerson

October 5, 1983 — April 28, 2020

The sun rose on the life of Nicholas Todd Dickerson on October 5, 1983 in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.  He was a bubbly and happy little boy who early awaited what life had to offer. He accepted Christ at a young age and was a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Sparkman, Arkansas.

“Nick” was an outgoing and care free soul. He made friends easily and hardly ever met a stranger. He made life-long friends wherever he went. He was a 2002 graduate of Sparkman High School and later attended the University of Arkansas of Fayetteville.  

He lived life to the fullest and always encouraged others to do the same. In his own way he inspired many. He joined Job Corps and earned an advanced culinary degree in San Francisco, California.

The kitchen was his playground that allowed him to use his skills and talents. He was a great Chef and mastered the kitchen at both Ouachita Baptist University and Slim and Shorty’s.  

He loved sports, working out, movies and he enjoyed reading. Nick was a “friend” of friends an will be tremendously missed.
