NELSON HalPosted: May 11th, 2013
November 20th, 1926 – May 5th, 2013
Hal passed away peacefully at the High River Hospital at the age of 86. His daughter Bev and his wife Ellen, of 62 years were lovingly by his side.
He will be sadly missed by Bev (Doug) Topley of Peachtree City, Georgia and his son Barry Nelson of Lethbridge.
Hal was the only grandfather they knew and his grandkids Lisa (Scott) Crossett of Bentonville, Arkansas and Dana Topley of Marietta, Georgia will miss grandpa. He was not able to meet his 2 month old great granddaughter Taylor Leigh Crossett but greatly enjoyed his daily photo streams of her.
He was fond of some very special nieces and nephews who all loved their uncle Hal.
Hal was a happy, friendly, even tempered man. He was also patient, kind man and a friend to all who knew him. He most enjoyed being with his friends and was always willing to lend them a helping hand.
At his request, he will be cremated and in lieu of a funeral he would like a gathering of his family and friends at a later date. Rather than flowers, Hal requested that a contribution be made in his memory to a charity of your choice. To email condolences please visit www.snodgrassfuneralhomes.com.
