Dennis Walter Nelson, 71, passed away on November 29, 2015 in Bryan, Texas. He was a loving husband of 39 years to his wife Beverly Carol Nelson and leaves behind her and their children. He was a devoted father to his daughter Catherine Ann Nelson-Hyden and son-in-law Scott, his son Brian Richard Nelson and daughter-in-law Lauren, and his son Erik Walter Nelson and daughter-in-law Katherine along with his two grand-children Oliver and Jude.
Born in Camrose, Alberta Canada, he was predeceased by his father Walter Nelson and is survived by his mother Edna Nelson and siblings Gail Bodwell, Barbara Anderson, Joan Scheie, Kathryn Penn, and Brian W. Nelson.
Raised on a farm, he began his diverse career as a mechanical engineer after graduating from the University of Alberta. He traveled and lived throughout the world working for the oil industry and made many close friends from Asia, Australia, and Europe. Settling in Texas, he received his MBA from the University of Houston, became a CPA, and started a new career as a trust officer working for various banks in the Houston area. He and Beverly moved permanently to their dream home overlooking the Brazos Valley in 2011 when he retired from Wells Fargo Bank. Returning to his farm roots, he enjoyed being outside and taking care of the land. He now takes care of his family from above where his spirit resides with the Lord.
