Nelson E. Culley Sr. Obituary
Culley, Nelson E. Sr.



Nelson Culley, Sr., 70, passed away on Sunday, July 3, 2016.

He is survived by his wife, Hope, who enjoyed 51 years of marital bliss; four children and their spouses; a grandson and his wife; ten unwed grandchildren; one great-grandson; a mother-in-law; a brother-in-law and his wife; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Nelson loved sports and spent decades coaching youth football and women's softball. He was a loving, caring, goofy, and wonderful giant of a man, that will be greatly missed and remain in the thoughts and hearts of all his loved ones. He has imparted his wisdom to all who listened, especially his grandkids. They knew his frugal nature, his knowledge of cars, his love of guns and westerns, how to treat others, the difference between right and wrong and how to stand up for yourself and what you believe in. Though he lived in Albuquerque most of his life, he spent his last years in the Phoenix area.

He touched many people's lives both in and outside his family, if you feel he has made an impact on your life, you are welcome to attend his funeral service. Graveside services will be held Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at Mount Calvary Cemetery, 1900 Edith Boulevard, NE, Albuquerque, NM, 87102. We may enjoy each other's company at the gravesite until noon when the Cemetery closes. There will be no additional gathering afterward.
