He also leaves behind Lisa’s family who love him dearly.
Nelson was predeceased by his father and mother, William Dan and Eliza (nee Fitzgerald); his brother, Francis, in infancy and by his father and mother-in-law, John and Frances McEvoy.
As per Nelson’s wish there will be no formal funeral. Family and friends are invited to meet Saturday February 2nd at Fillmore Whitman Funeral Home in Ingonish from 1 to 3 p.m., for a celebration of his life.
In lieu of flowers, donations, if desired, in Nelson’s memory may be made to, St. Paul’s Historical Society, in Dingwall. This was a society that was very dear to his heart.
