Darrell Nelson, 84

April 12, 2012

Obituary of Darrell James Nelson, as written by Darrell, because he wanted it to "be correct". Perhaps there is a little ego involved, but after 84 years of humble, that should be excusable. There may be some opinion, but mostly just facts that can be confirmed if you want to take the trouble. These final words are a little long, but it averages out to about one minute for each decade, and I do not think that is unreasonable.
