When the staff of the Rocky Mountain News gathered for their group photo — dressed in their best — after winning a Pulitzer Prize, photographer Steven R. Nickerson showed up holding a bowling ball and wearing a purple hat in the shape of a cow’s udder.

“He just did it because he was his own person,” said Dennis Schroeder, who was a photographer with Nickerson for about seven years at the Rocky, and a close friend for half a decade more. “He was so much himself that when he was around other people it allowed them to be themselves, and people really liked that.”

Nickerson, 55, died at his home in Thornton Saturday at about 4:30 p.m. after a more than 15-year battle with scleroderma, a chronic, autoimmune disorder that causes hardening of connective tissue.
