Franklin Case Nicklin - MARLBOROUGH, NY

Frank Nicklin, lifelong resident and retired farmer of Marlborough died July 14. Frank passed in his home on Mount Zion Road in which he was born 94 years ago in January 19, 1911. The son of Sarah Augusta Baxter Nicklin and William Towers Nicklin who were also born and raised in Marlborough, New York. Frank lived his life as a hard working farmer who loved his family, home and land. He knew every nook and cranny of the Marlborough's mountains as he walked it everyday. He walked it quietly and reflectively, he walked it as a hunter and he walked it as a farmer, holding the reins of his farm horse, Bill. He and his two brothers, Edmund and John cultivated the soils of the hillsides to grow the fruits that fed their families and people in far flung places. Frank's wit and dry humor was with him throughout his life and even until the very end. He wove stories of family history, local lore and humor for all who came to his home. Every story was told with Frankie's unique curmudgeonly style, a wink and a twinkle of his blue eyes. His rapier wit and gentle heart will sorely be missed. Frank was an avid antiques collector and a member of the Hudson Valley Bottle Club. Family members who carry his name forward include his devoted and loving wife Freda Wilklow Nicklin who still rules the homestead on the mountain with a loving but iron hand. All of his children, William F. Nicklin and his wife Adah residing in Newburgh, Janet Gardner and Elsie Nicklin-McKay and her husband Robert McKay also of Marlborough. Six grandchildren: William Nicklin and wife Lisa, Jonathan Nicklin, Ryan Gardner, Rebecca Gardner, Colin McKay and Grace McKay. Frank also leaves behind one great-grandchild Henry. Those who have passed on before him are his eight brothers and sisters: Blanche Medeiros, Ralph Nicklin, Eva Kramer, John Nicklin, William Nicklin, Edmund Nicklin, Russell Nicklin and Donald Nicklin. Calling hours will be Monday, 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the DiDonato Funeral Home, 1290 Route 9W, Marlboro.
