It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and poppa Jack Nelson, of Cranbrook, who passed at the age of 77 with his family by his side.

He leaves to mourn his wife of 48 years Anne, daughter Jeanette (Don) McGhie, son Craig (Shana) Nelson, four granddaughters, one step-grandson, one step-granddaughter, two sisters Marg (Gerry) Hughes, Dori (Joe) Rotondo, three sisters-in-law Carol (Pete) Nelson, Eleanor (Allan) Schmidt, Dale Olson, brother-in-law Fred Olson and many extended family.

At his request there will be no public service, and his family will gather at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to East Kootenay S.P.C.A., PO Box 2, Cranbrook, British Columbia, V1C 4H6.

Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
