Loni was born September 29, 1964, in Oelwein to LeRoy and Cloey Nickerson, raised in Winthrop, IA surrounded by love, laughter and half-nelsons, and graduated from East Buchanan High School in 1983. He lived in Colorado where his four children were born; relocating to Van Meter 15 years ago. Loni was a craftsman, "Mr. Fix It" to many. Most importantly he was an incredibly amazing father and friend.
