Nelson fought bravely in the Second World War and was in the first wave at Normandy. A Brick has been placed at Juno Beach remembering the service he gave to his country. Nelson continued to be a faithful member of the Royal Canadian Legion. He will be fondly remembered by his good Friends Ian and Sheila McKILLOP, and also all the many Friends he made at Tim Horton's on Colborne Road. His nickname was "Cowboy" because he always wore his western hat, boots and jeans - a throw back to his younger days around horses. He loved animals all his life. Nelson had 10 pin bowled for almost 50 years and was still bowling in early March and made many Friends through his bowling associations. We will all miss him dearly, but know that he is now with his beloved Audrey and they are back together and in God's hands.
