Seth Lee Nicholas

Seth Lee Nicholas, age 41, passed away unexpectedly in Conway, Texas on March 18, 2023. He was born on December 19, 1981, in Deer River, Minnesota to Steve and Linda Nicholas.

The family moved to Georgia in 1992. He attended Maranatha Christian School and West Hall High School graduating in 2000. Seth was a quiet, solitary, mild mannered, patient, kind and very loving man.

He loved his partner of 7 years, Hannah Stokes, fishing and his dogs. Seth worked as an OTR truck driver and loved his big rig. He was living the life he always wanted.

He was predeceased by his grandparents, Don and Jean Nicholas, and Harry and Nana Webber, and one aunt, Karen Webber Billette.

He is survived by his parents who love him more than words can describe, aunts, uncles, cousins.

Although he left this world too soon, he left this world a better place. Rest in peace sweet son. We will see you soon.

In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to St. Jude’s in honor of Seth.

There will be a private family service at a later date.


  1. Hannah

    Seth was my partner and best friend for the last 7 years. The Love of my life.
    Even though it was just 7 years it felt much longer than that, when you’re both together all the time. Riding and living within a semi truck you learn very quickly how compatible you are. We knew very quickly we were meant to be together. No matter how long and tiring the journey was it was always worth it. I will forever hold on to the memories and will forever regret that our time was cut short. He was the most patient and caring person I have ever met. He could always make me laugh. He worked very hard to provide and care for me. He always wanted to do his very best when it came to driving. I was always so proud to tell others he was a truck driver. I could write a million other things, but for now I will have to go on without him, I pray to see him again one day.

    Sweet nephew, I still can’t believe you are gone?…I know God must have needed angels and you are one right now.

    I will dearly miss you…every time I see semi’s on the road, looking for you driving. Knowing you are somewhere out there…it was comforting. Maybe they do have Truck Driving in heaven? If they do, I know you are one of them.

    God takes the good ones and he saw your gentle soul…easy going personality and knew he could keep you safe.

    Rest well sweet nephew…we will miss you, but will keep your memory alive. With love, Aunt Darla

    May you rest in everlasting peace cousin! We were all blessed to know you here on earth but I know you have returned home now to heaven. May you get hugs from grandma and grandpa and a kiss on the cheek from my Mom! Watch over your parents and Hannah and all of those you loved. Our Guardian Angel, Seth. May you forever be in our hearts and may we feel your presence always.

  5. John EdwArds

    My name is John Edwards. I meet Seth when we were training OTR with PTL. From the moment I met Seth we became the best of friends. We drove together for 15,000 miles and he is probably the only person on earth that could put up with me living together in an 18 wheeler for over a month. ? There isn’t a day that goes by and a story about my short driving career that that he isn’t brought up in. His aunt Darla treated me like family from the start just like he did. I’m truly sorry for ya’ll lost and I know he is looking down over us all. God has gained a really special angel and may he watch over us all. Seth you will be missed buddy. I love you. John K.

  6. Dan Yazumbek

    Seth, may you be at peace. I will always be fond of the memories that we shared together on this earth from the Christmas’s together in North Carolina, the beach and Grandma’s house in Florida, and the week I visited your parents in Georgia. Say hi to Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Karen for me. For all those that you cared for and loved, be their Guardian Angel and protector as you are with them in spirit. You may be gone but your spirit will forever live on! Love you Cousin!

  7. Eli Billette

    Seth was my cousin. When I was younger, Seth was the closest thing to an older brother that I had. I looked up to him figuratively and quite literally as well. More importantly Seth was a child of God, and that made him more beautiful than we as humans can ever know. I regret that I did not know Seth as well as an adult. Distance, time, and life kept us apart. But I do have hope and ever confidence that I will see Seth again.

    Revelation 21:4 says ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

    Ecclesiastes 12:7 says “and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.”

    I will miss and remember my cousin to the end of my days. My thoughts and prays go out to all that knew and loved Seth Nicholas.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Your family is in my family’s prayers.

    My cousin Seth,

    The world is a better place because you were in it. We did not speak on the phone or text for years before your passing, and I regret this. The most recent conversation that I remember was at my parents house in NC a few Christmases ago. We spoke about your love of trucking. We talked about Hannah and how much she meant to you. You were so happy to have her with you on your trips and by your side. I remember how excited you were to give me a tour of your truck, just a huge smile on your face.

    Another memory I have of you, was your love of video games and we even played together online back in like 2011 a couple times. I thought that was the coolest thing, getting to know you better and chatting about this and that. Long before that around 2004 – you, myself, Dan, and our cousin Eli stayed together in an RV outside a home down in FL for another cousins medieval wedding. That was a good time. I remember we all laughed and we all went walking together. I think you also threw a lizard at Dan, that was funny.

    Even long before that, you must have come up to WI for one of mine or Dan’s birthday parties. I tried on your shoes and I looked like a clown, but I thought it was the best. I’m sure my mom has that picture around somewhere. We are a decade apart in age and I always looked up to you growing up. I will miss you, Seth. I will look up to you now in Heaven and smile, knowing you are happy and smiling back down at all of us.

    I am sorry for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
