Raymond J. Nelson Obituary
Raymond J. Nelson, 55, of Firth, Idaho passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family on Thursday, May 21, 2015 after a valiant battle with cancer.

Raymond was born June 29, 1959 in Blackfoot, Idaho to Diana Winmill and Devere Nelson.

On May 19, 1979 Raymond married Cindy L. Baker in Blackfoot, Idaho. In 1990 they were blessed with twin sons, Adam and Derek.

He worked for Teepee Potato for 22 years, until he got a great opportunity in 1997 to work for Wada Farms Potatoes. He was the maintenance supervisor until June of 2014. He enjoyed his job and the people he worked with. Some called him MacGyver because of his special skills with electronics and mechanics. He enjoyed working on classic Hot Rods and building fast engines. In his free time he enjoyed camping with his family and friends and will truly be missed.

Raymond is survived by his wife, Cindy of Firth, Idaho; sons, Adam of Firth, and Derek of Firth; his parents, Diana and Devere Nelson of Blackfoot; siblings, Dennis (Sherry) Nelson of Blackfoot, Brenda (Terrell) Ashley of Blackfoot and Dewayne Nelson of Blackfoot; a half brother, Mike (Deana) Burnett of Blackfoot; and many nieces and nephews.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Cremation under the direction of Hawker Funeral Home in Blackfoot. Condolences may be sent to the family online at www.hawkerfuneralhome.com.

Raymond, save us a camping spot!
