James Matthew (Matt) Nicholson, of Galivant’s
Ferry, SC, formerly of Dilley, TX, went to his
eternal rest with the Lord on April 12, 2021. He

life’s work as a computer programmer. He spent
his entire 35-year career at Coastal Carolina
College in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Matt is survived by his devoted partner Kim
Johnson; daughters Hannah (Hayden) Maxey
and Susannah Nicholson; daughters by love
