David Nelson

David “Dave” Dale Nelson, 58, passed away peacefully at his home, in San Diego, on October 24th, 2018. He was born in Sacramento, California on February 21, 1960.

Dave was the son, brother, Uncle and friend to many. He leaves behind a large, loving family, as well as close friends and additionally many others, whose lives he touched in a profound way.

He was survived by his Mother, Shirley, his Father, Ronald, his siblings, Debra, Kimberly, Carla, Rodney, David and Michele, his nephews and nieces, Jason, Jasmine, Jorden, Jeffrey, Zachary, Alexandria, Madison and Sydney and his great nieces and nephew, Faith, Jade, Dixon, Jorja, Jenesis, Madelynn and Zoey.

Dave was a man of few words but always knew how to make you laugh. He knew a little bit about everything, which gave him the ability to do or make just about anything. He had a big love for all animals and enjoyed spending time doing different activities in the mountains, such as hiking, backpacking, skiing and camping.

Dave will be greatly missed by all.

Arrangements are incomplete at this time. Service details will be posted as soon as they become available.
