Kenneth Edward Nelson(Whiting, NJ)

It is with great sadness that the family of Kenneth Edward Nelson announces his passing after a long illness, on Saturday August 3, 2019, at the age of 71. He was born to Jacquetta Owens Nelson and Richard Nelson, on March 29, 1948, in Boston, MA.

Ken will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 25 years, Rachel and his two precious daughters, Jackie Nelson of Nashua, NH, Carrie Ann Nelson of Woburn, MA and his late step-son Dennis McGreevy. Ken will also be remembered by his sole grand-daughter Haley McQuaide of Nashua, NH and by his sisters, Charlotte Cahill of Roslindale, MA, Joni Nelson of Roslindale, MA, and his two nephews, John McMahon and Richard McMahon and his two long-time best friends Kevin Krug of NJ and Neftali Garcia of NY.

Ken had a passion for life and loved to be called “Uncle Ken” by all. He loved watching trivia shows on TV, had a joke for every scenario, was full of stories and loved to make people laugh. In his younger days, he loved playing racquetball and softball, teaching the art of karate and traveling to one of his favorite locations, Las Vegas and one time he even played a game of softball with Al Pacino.

He served in the US Army Reserve, was a caterer and then went into the financial field where he worked for 40 years as a mortgage banker. Thank you for being part of the Life and Love of Ken.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully request considering a donation, in memory of Ken , to Deborah Heart & Lung Center Hospital Foundation New Jersey Region P.O. Box 820 Browns Mills, NJ 08015.
