Hubert Edward Nelson, 79, of Helena, Montana, passed away on Sunday, April 29, 2018 in Helena, Montana.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, May 6, 2018 at Olinger Crown Hill Mortuary & Cemetery.

Hubert was born Denver, Colorado to Hubert and Irma Nelson on April 13, 1939. He married Deanne Kay Sigea on Dec. 18, 1959 in Denver. He worked as a machinist for Morse Chain for 23 years, and later retired from State of Alaska Correctional Industries in 1998.

Hubert had an unwavering sense of adventure that brought his family from Colorado to Alaska in 1982, and continued to inspire countless hunting and fishing trips across Alaska and the United States. He held a private pilot's license that he used to full advantage to explore all of the beauty nature has to offer. Hubert was happiest outdoors hunting and training with his beloved dogs, Nellie and Jazzmine, and he instilled his love of the outdoors in all of children and grandchildren. Following retirement in 1998 he and wife Deanne took to the road and traveled, sightseeing and exploring across the United States in their fifth-wheel, snow birding in Arizona. The adventure continued and brought him and Deanne to Helena, Montana in 2014. Hubert was a loving husband, wonderful father and outstanding grandfather.

Hubert was preceded in death by daughter, Deborah Kay Nelson.

Hubert is survived by his wife of 58 years Deanne Kay; his children Jeffery and wife Lori, Deirdre and husband Craig Cheek, and Daniel and wife Allison; step-sister Susie Barnham; and grandchildren Zachery and wife Melanie Nelson, Jacob Cheek, Luke Nelson and fiancée Jenna Catalano, and Addison Cheek.

Pallbearers will be Jeffery Nelson, Daniel Nelson, Craig Cheek, Zachery Nelson, Jacob Cheek, and Luke Nelson.
