The Passing of the Rev. Dr. Iain G. Nicol, a Former Director of the Toronto School of Theology

The Toronto School of Theology was saddened to learn of the passing of the Rev. Dr. Iain G. Nicol on February 4, 2019. Dr. Nicol was the Director of the Toronto School of Theology from 1980 to 1987. He was also a Professor of Systematic Theology at TST's member college, Knox College, from 1976 until his retirement in 2002. Iain was an unwavering supporter of TST over the years and his caring and friendship will be greatly missed by many. TST extends our sympathy to his wife, Eleanor, his children Juliet and Roy and his daughter-in-law, Marcella. 

A memorial service will be held on February 10 at St. Andrew’s Church, 73 Simcoe Street, Toronto. Visitation will begin at 2:00 pm, with the service at 3:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the ALS Society and to St. Andrew’s Church. Memories can be shared at
