Ronald C. Nelson

  A Celebration of Life Service for Ronald C. Nelson, 59, of  Welcome, Minnesota, formerly of Mapleton, Minnesota  will be 1:30 p.m. Monday, February 24, 2014 at Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church in Fairmont, Minnesota with  Pastor  Peter Hagen officiating.       

 Ronald was called to his eternal rest  on Monday afternoon, February 17, 2014  at the Trimont Health Care Center in Trimont, Minnesota.    Messages of sympathy can be sent online to the family at www.kramerfuneralhome.com

Ronald Carl Nelson was born on July 6, 1954 to Carl and Ora (Anderson) Nelson in Mankato, Minnesota.  He attended Mapleton Public School where he graduated in 1972.  Ron then attended Mankato Vo-Tech and graduated in 1974 in Sales/Marketing.  On January 13, 2013 he was united in marriage to Rebecca Terrell at Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church in Fairmont, Minnesota.  After their marriage they lived in Welcome.  It was his goal each day to make somebody laugh.  Either by telling a silly story or a joke.  He loved his grandchildren very much.  Ron loved karaoke and all types of music.  He was an avid sports fan of the Minnesota Twins, Vikings and Gophers and used to play baseball for the Mankato Merchants.     Best memories were of the time he had at the farm by Lura Lake and Spaghetti Sundays.

 He is survived by his  wife, Rebecca Nelson of Welcome, Minnesota; his four daughters, Angela (Nathan Stolt) Schimek of Mankato, Minnesota, Kimberly Zondag, (Reed Hamer) of Lakeville, Minnesota, Amanda (Aaron) Bartell of Mankato, Minnesota, Ashley (Cotey) Bandow of Mankato, Minnesota; nine grandchildren; step-son, Richard Mount of Welcome, Minnesota; sister, Beverly (Francis) Nass of LeSueur, Minnesota; brother-in-law, Roger Lentz of Eau Claire, Wisconsin; nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Ora Nelson; sister, Mary Lou Lentz  and other relatives.
