Obituary

In Loving Memory of George Marvin Nelson, March 10th, 1936 to May 12th, 2019. George passed peacefully at Health Sciences North surrounded by the love of his family. George will be missed by his loving wife of 63 years, Irene (nee Beaudoin), and his children, Marvin (Edi), Christine (Perry), Gary (Carol), Cairin (Michael) and Cathy. He will be fondly remembered by his eight grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. George will be sadly missed by his brother, Eddy, sister, Shirley and his brother-in-law Leonard. He is predeceased by his parents, John and Mary (nee Thibeault) and his brothers, Ronald and Harvey.

George lived a life of utmost integrity, known for his strength and wisdom both at home and throughout the business community. He was proud of his service in the Canadian Armed Forces in his younger years, and equally proud to own and operate G.M. Nelson Welding, Ltd. for fifty years. George was a pillar in the community, and his shop became a testament to his character… a popular meeting place for many, to begin their day with sarcasm and endless laughter, over many a cup of mediocre coffee. Those who knew George, with his sharp wit and brutal honesty, held him in the highest regard. Likewise, George cherished each of those relationships, often saying that he didn’t miss the work, but he missed the people.

Of his family, George was incredibly proud. He was an exceptional role model, supporter and provider. He laid out the foundation for each of his children to become strong and independent. He didn’t protect them from the lessons of life, but he was ever present with his no-nonsense, practical insight to enable them to overcome adversity and forge ahead. George will forever live in each and every one of them.

To his loving partner, Irene, George was deeply devoted. Together, they enjoyed many activities (bowling, fishing, dancing, snowmobiling, camping, etc). Though the challenges of the golden years limited these activities, George continued to cherish the love of his life and their time spent together.
The family would like to thank the staff, nurses and doctors at Health Sciences North – 5th Floor South Tower for taking such great care of George and also a very special thank you to the Sudbury Paramedic Service for their excellent care and compassion.

Visitation at the Jackson & Barnard Funeral Home (233 Larch Street, Sudbury), Thursday, May 16th, 2019 from 2-4 & 6-9 pm. Cremation at the Park Lawn Crematorium. Donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
