A graduate of Mississippi College and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Mr. Nikolic pastored and served as recreational director at many churches throughout Mississippi. He was employed at Metro Baptist until a car accident prevented him from continuing to work. Charles loved serving his church family, especially working with youth through sports programs and building churches. In his spare time, he enjoyed water rafting, spending time with his grandchildren, and supporting his favorite sports teams—Mississippi State, the New York Yankees, and the Mississippi Braves. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Nora Nikolic; brothers, Troy Clinton and Roy Clinton; and sister, Martha Petras. He is survived by his daughters, Latricia (Terry) McNair of Terry and Tere (Shane) Crouchet of Harahan, LA; brother, John Nikolic of Pearl; sister, Joyce (Steve) Evans of Florence; five grandchildren, Aaron (Allie) Parker, Hannah Parker, Brian McNair, Abbigail Crouchet, and Corbin Crouchet; and four great-grandchildren, Leyton and Silas Parker, Gracelyn Cozart, and Dakota Cook.
