Nolan Luke Vicknair, affectionately known as "Vick", peacefully passed away in his hometown Marrero, LA on June 4, 2024. His life, rich with experiences and cherished memories, came to a close the age of 99.


Born on April 8, 1925, in Marrero, Nolan led a life defined by dedication and service. After proudly serving in the United States Navy as a Seaman 1st Class, he pursued a career as a Machinist at Avondale Shipyard. Nolan's commitment to his work was never questioned, and his craftsmanship left an indelible mark on those around him.


Outside of his professional endeavors, Nolan found joy and fulfillment in various interests. As a Diamond Club Member, CAA (Commercial Athletic Association) Committee Member, and Holy Name Society member, he not only engaged in activities he loved but also cultivated lasting friendships with like-minded individuals who shared his passions. He loved playing sports and was a well known athlete across the city of New Orleans for all his achievements.


In the hearts of those who knew him best, Nolan will forever be remembered for his warmth and generosity. His presence brightened every room he entered, leaving a lasting impact on all who had the privilege of crossing paths with him.


Nolan's memory will be cherished by his surviving nieces and nephews: Wayne Vicknair, Kenneth Vicknair (Nancy), Karen Dewberry (Gary), Cheryl Donewar (John), and Vickie Richard (Joey); Larry Dabria;  and long time friend and caregiver Judith Thompson. In their grief, they find solace in the legacy of love and strength that Nolan leaves behind.


He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Mickie and siblings: Earl Vicknair Sr., Marjorie V. LeBlanc, Lois Chaisson, Donald Vicknair, Mildred “Mickie” Vicknair; as well as by his parents Luke P. Vicknair and Lillian D. Vicknair of White Castle, LA. Their spirits now reunite in eternal peace alongside Nolan's.


Visitation services will be held on June 12th, 2024 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Marrero followed by a Mass from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The Interment ceremony will take place at Westlawn Memorial Park, 1225 Whitney Ave., as Nolan is laid to rest.
