La’Darrion Keith Nichols was born September 14, 1991, in Dallas, Texas to Darren K. Nichols and Michelle B. Gunter. The youngest boy in his household received his formal education from Dallas Public Schools, attending J. Patton Elementary School, Oliver W. Holmes Middle School, Justin F. Kimball High School, and graduated from Gateway High School in 2010. He then furthered his educational endeavors at Grambling State University in Grambling, Louisiana, majoring in Criminal Justice.
In 2008, while in high school, he met a beautiful young lady named Ashlyn Rolfe, who would become the love of his life. He loved her, adored her, and cherished her, to the point she was soon to become Mrs. Nichols.
Nic had been employed with the Dallas County Sheriff Department as a DSO for twelve plus years, until his untimely demise.
Nic was a person who never met a stranger. He always had an infectious smile that would brighten up a room. He greeted everyone with love and compassion, always welcoming a conversation, a time to joke and laugh. Nic was a devoted follower of fashion, rocking the latest trends, taking pride in his wardrobe, especially his shoes.
In 2018, Nic founded a nonprofit organization, Looking 2 Help. In this accomplishment, with the help of his team, family, and friends, he was able to feed over 1,000 people in the community. Nic would host a yearly “Kids Day Out” event in the City of Dallas, which was a day full of fun, laughter, giveaways, doorbusters, food and a basketball game with an explosive halftime show.
Eventually, Nic became known to thousands as Yung Nicco, as he embarked upon a musical journey as an independent artist and songwriter. Yung Nicco was referred to as “a progressive musician from Dallas, TX who combines multiple mediums of music which include hip hop and pop, into a very soothing artistic sound.” He poured his heart and soul into his music, creating remarkable mixtapes and an EP. Yung Nicco could give the audience a deep perspective into his everyday life while tap dancing into pop culture.
Nic will be remembered for his amazingly infectious smile, charming personality, stylish demeanor, free spirit & creative energy. He was preceded in death by his brother, Brandon Bush; grandmother, Gloria Gunter; grandfathers, Add Jackson and Otho Griffin; great grandmother, Bernice Tucker, and Mattie Ware; cousin, Delisa Kelley; uncle, Coleman Nichols, and Donald Ray Nichols.
Nic will be forever loved, cherished & remembered by his father, Darren K. Nichols (Rhonda); his loving mother, Michelle Gunter-Smith (Troy); two brothers, Darren Nichols (his right hand) and Darrius Nichols; fiancé, Ashlyn Rolfe; grandfather, Frank Gunter; two nieces, Baileigh Nichols, and Emrie Nichols; nephew, Deriyon Nichols, and a host of loving aunts & uncles, cousins, other relatives, friends, fans & supporters.
