Neil E. Nelson, age 78 of Danby, New York passed away March 3, 2013 at his brother's home in Pensacola Florida. A well-known friend and neighbor, Neil will be remembered and honored at a memorial service to be held May 18th at the Danby Pirates Club, 1248 Fisher Settlement Road. At 3:00 PM we will gather to say farewell with stories and anecdotes celebrating Neil's life. Followed by a military honor service after which food will be provided. Everyone is welcome to arrive early and visit with family and friends. Despite his many years of valiant opposition, Neil's illnesses finally brought down even this strong and resilient individual. But we will be there with you to recall all those good years lived by someone who was a generous person who loved and lived life and most importantly cared for his family. Neil was born in Ithaca the son of Reginald and Dorothy Compton Nelson; he was married to the late joyful and vivacious Laurene Shea Nelson; is the brother of Barbara (Kevin) Brennan of Virginia and Bruce Nelson of Florida. He is the father of the late Bruce Todd Nelson and his sons Kris, Shawn and Brent Nelson. He is also survived by many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins. The years spent at their cottage on the west shore of Cayuga Lake made Neil and his family known by many in the nautical and lake community. Neil was a proud American and Marine. Please bring photos. In memory of Neil Red Cat will be served.
