Nelson, David  
David Nelson Was born in Harawa, New Zealand on August 2, 1927 and spent his childhood getting into mischief. It was there that he also developed a love of art and jazz, and a longing for travel. While attending art school in Auckland he worked in a rope factory and a chocolate factory. At nineteen he left Auckland and boarded a ship transporting butter to various parts of New Zealand and worked on it for nearly a year as it sailed to England. In London, he attended art school and worked behind the scenes in the West End theater district. A few years later he headed to Toronto, and in 1958, David settled in San Francisco where he became a lettering artist extraordinaire in the graphic arts advertising business. He had two sons with his former wife, Lois. A whiz in the kitchen, fascinated by politics, he never abandoned his love of travel and jazz. He and his wife, Jan, attended every anti-war march in San Francisco and he delighted in making clever and evocative protest signs. Even before his retirement years, his wanderlust returned and he and Jan traveled far and wide. David always had a twinkle in his eye, was a patient man, and a class act. As he requested in his obituary (and as they say in New Zealand), he "reluctantly fell off the perch" on May 19th. David battled prostate cancer for 20 years and was humbled and touched by the many friends and family who stayed by his side in his Marin County home as he neared the end of his life. He is deeply loved and will be greatly missed by his wife and companion of 37 years, Jan Bauman; his sons, Chris Nelson (Catherine Renno) and Darryl Nelson (Julie Ann Dunne); stepchildren Laurie Arnold (Steve), Jim Bauman, and Gary Bauman; and grandchildren Elana Nelson, Jordan Arnold, and Dylan Arnold
