Nelson, Harry - Greenwich  
Nelson, Harry L. Harry L. Nelson passed away peacefully on December 4, 2014 at the Edgehill Senior Center in Stamford, CT. Harry was born on September 17, 1922 to Harry and Christina Nelson in Stamford, CT. Harry honorably served during World War II and was a true embodiment of what it meant to be part of the Greatest Generation. A printer by trade, he spent most of his career as a loyal employee of WJR Printers. Harry was a very handy man who took pride in his home and lawn. Even at 92, he could commonly be found in the yard raking leaves, planting and cutting the grass. For him, it was not just about maintaining the yard. For him, it was a true labor of love. Always a man of few words, those closest to Harry knew him as a humble and gentle man who would do anything for his family. It is not often that you can identify someone as completely selfless, but Harry was just that person. His loyal support and devotion to those he loved will forever remain his legacy and for that his family has been blessed. In 1947, Harry married the love of his life, Arline, and this past September, they celebrated their 67th year anniversary. Together they shared a lifetime of love and happiness that only a few people are lucky enough to enjoy. In her final years, he acted as a doting husband and caretaker without compliant. He now joins his bride in the afterlife, eternally by her side where he has always been happiest. He is survived by his son Gary Nelson and his wife Doreen of Stratford, his daughter Barbara Meno of Stamford, and his grandchildren, Michael Meno, Jeffrey Meno, Stephen Meno, Kylie Nelson and Kevin Nelson. He is predeceased by his wife Arline Nelson and his sister Marion Kach. A memorial service will take place at 3 pm Saturday, December 20th at the First Presbyterian Church (Fish Church), 1101 Bedford St, Stamford for those who would like to pay their respects. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to donate to the Wounded Warrior Project or another charity of your choice.
