David R. Nelson, age 63, of Shawmut Road, Brockport, Pa., died on Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, at Penn Highlands DuBois.
Born on Aug. 29, 1954, in Buffalo, N.Y., he was the son of the late Harry Nelson and Betty McConnell Nelson, who survives and lives in Warsaw, N.Y. He was married to Shirley M. Cribbs and she preceded him in death on June 10, 2001.
Dave was employed as a mechanic at Stoltz Ford in St. Marys, and was a highly decorated Ford Senior Master Technician.
He was currently the president of the Brockport Army/Navy Club; was a member of the Brockway Orient Club; Warsaw Twp. Sportsmen's Club, Eagles Club and the Horton Sportsmen's Club.
He enjoyed playing pool, golfing and was very good at fixing anything. He also enjoyed making people smile and laugh. Perhaps his greatest joy came from spending time with his granddaughters.
In addition to his mother, Dave is survived by a daughter, Nancy (Ryan) Morrison of Brockway; a son, David W. Nelson of Brockport; a brother, Jim (Deb) Nelson of Holland, N.Y.; four sisters: Bev (Jesse) Heilbrun of Falls Creek, Pa., Sue Nelson of Peach Tree City, Ga., Mary Nelson (Mike Ryan) of Amherst, N.Y., and Ginger (Bob) Trabert of Glenwood, N.Y.
