Daniel Clovis Nielson Obituary
April 4, 1978 - April 30, 2016 Daniel Clovis Nielson passed away on April 30th surrounded by his family at UCLA Medical Center. Danny was the fourth of six children born to Mike and Kathleen Nielson. The family moved from Pasadena to Yorba Linda in Danny's youth. He was fun loving and enjoyed his siblings, youth sports, church and Boy Scout activities. As he grew into adolescence, he developed a love of the ocean and a passion for surfing and travel. He also enjoyed following the local sports scene. Always self-sufficient, Danny was a hard worker but did things his own way. He supported himself as a vendor (hawker) selling concessions up and down the aisles of Angel games for many years, and at several other sports and entertainment venues throughout Southern California and the West Coast. While Danny was not working outdoor events-typically during the winter months-he would pursue his passion for travel and free spirited fun. He enjoyed great mutual love with his family. His handsome looks, deep blue eyes, quick wit and fun loving nature will be cherished forever. Though his family will greatly miss him, they believe strongly that family bonds extend far beyond this life. Danny is survived by his Mother-Kathleen Nielson (Seal Beach), Father-Michael (Redondo Beach), Sister-Kimberly Greenman (Chris, Reno, NV), Brother-Scott (Shellie, Gilbert, AZ), Brother-Matt (Tristan, Salt Lake City, UT), Brother-Andrew (Holland, Costa Mesa), Sister-Kristina (Salt Lake City, UT), Grandmother-Joyce Allen Nielson (Sandy, UT) and 13 loving nieces and nephews. The family would like to express gratitude for the exceptional and compassionate treatment for liver failure that Danny received at Torrance Memorial and UCLA Medical Center. Danny's life will be celebrated on Saturday, May 7th at 10:00 am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - 5550 Ohio St. in Yorba Linda. A viewing will precede the service at 9:00 am. He will be interred at Pacific Crest Cemetery in Redondo Beach.
