Nelson Family

We lost Billy on January 12th, 2014. He was an amazing father to Olivia. He was her "Big Daddy” and her biggest fan. Billy had a lot of pain in his body due to past sport and accident injuries. In the last year of his life he had two corrective-type surgeries. He was prescribed many different types of medications for the pain. He was released from a three-week stay at a physical rehab. He had been out for less than two weeks when I found Billy. He had not woken up from a deep sleep. The coroner stated the cause of the death as an accidental overdose. We absolutely miss Billy with all our hearts. We take solace in the fact that he is in Heaven and has no more pain. Billy was an amazing athlete with many records that still haven’t been broken. Olivia has already demonstrated that she has inherited some of her Daddy’s natural talent. We choose to remember Billy as the strong, athletic man he was all his life.
