Obituary for Francis Thomas Nyholm

Francis Thomas Nyholm, 89, of Oak Ridge, TN, passed away surrounded by family, Thursday, June 28, 2018 in St. Louis, MO. Frank was born October 25, 1928, in New York, NY to Ernest and Catherine (Keane) Nyholm. On June 24, 1956 he married Jane Denney Nyholm, who preceded him in death January 17, 2011. They were blessed with two children, Jamie and Bruce. After graduating high school, Frank served with the U.S. Army during the Korean conflict and remained in the Army until 1959. Following the Army Frank worked as a Union electrician in Kentucky and Indiana, moving to Oak Ridge in 1970 to work for Union Carbide at Y-12 National Security Complex, retiring in 1993. Frank served in the Naval Reserve and retired in 1987 after 26 years of service. A member of St. Mark’s Church in Clinton, he was very active in his faith and enjoyed singing in the choir. Frank enjoyed softball, traveling the world with his wife and rediscovered his love of art, winning awards for many of his paintings.
Frank was always cheerful and quick to get a smile with his unique charm and “Frankisms”. Frank is survived by his sons Jamie (Linda) Nyholm, Bruce (Bridget O’Brien) Nyholm; and his grandchildren, Tomi Rael, Savanna Nyholm and Connor Hunsicker; brother Vincent (Christine) Nyholm; and many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by brother-in-law, John Sweeney Sr. In addition to his wife Jane, he was preceded in death by his parents; siblings Ernest, Joseph, Anna and Mary; and brother-in-law, Edwin Bergenson. Family will receive friends Saturday, July 7 from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. at St. Marks United Methodist Church, Clinton. Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Dave Grant officiating. Interment to follow at Anderson Memorial Gardens. Weatherford Mortuary is assisting the family with arrangements. An on-line guest book can be signed at www.weatherfordmortuary.com. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials be made to your charity of choice. Special thanks to the many friends who surrounded Frank with love and care in his final years, living in St. Louis. A final thank you to the staff of Vitas Healthcare for their urgency and compassion transitioning him from hospital to home.
