Nelson worked at Prairie Screening in Lockwood, Missouri, but he couldn’t be described with a single title. Nelson was great at many things. He was an award winning writer, a professional musician, a philosopher and a friend, but most importantly to him, he was a husband, a father and a granddad. He loved his family with a vigor, passion and ferocity that can never be measured in words.
