He departed this life on April 18, 2019, at Huntsville Hospital. He was baptized at the age of 12 years old and was a member of Greater Fellowship Church in Sheffield, Alabama.

Nigel was a 9th grader at Huntsville High School. He loved theater and history. Nigel spent many years in band where he played the clarinet, trumpet, and drums.
