Nelson enjoyed spending time with family and serving as a deacon at Westhaven Baptist Church. He will always be remembered for his dry wit and funny sense of humor. Nelson enjoyed a good joke at anyone’s expense and loved to laugh while making others laugh. Nelson was the ultimate go to guy. Nelson was well-versed in cars and could do arithmetic in his head. He was a superb cook and could make anything from scratch. Ask your neighbor about his “killer beans”.
