He is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years Mary (Gentile) Nelson, devoted children, Bro. Glenn Mary Joseph Nelson, OFS (New Haven) and Jeanne M.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him for his selfless giving, sense of humor, uncanny wit, remarkable patience, the perpetuation of his Swedish Heritage and his encyclopedic knowledge of all sports. The family is deeply grateful to the entire Staff of the Yale -New Haven Hospital St Raphael Campus for their professional and compassionate care.
