Timothy Robert Nelson

Timothy Robert Nelson passed away at his home in the Santa Cruz mountains on February 4, 2019.

Tim was born to Robert and June (Brockman) Nelson August 30, 1962. Tim attended the Susanville Seventh-day Adventist grammar school then went on to Monterey Bay Academy in La Selva Beach California for two years. He came back to Susanville his Junior year and graduated Lassen High in 1980. But his love of living by the ocean was strong and he quickly moved back where he could go scuba diving whenever he wanted. He bought a home up in the redwoods of Felton and started his long career of becoming a Sr. Buyer-Planner for 3 different medical firms in the San Jose, Santa Cruz area. Tim loved to fish, camp, travel and cheer on his Giants and 49ers. Tim was a member of E Clampus Vitus and the Moose Lodge. He enjoyed going out with friends and meeting up at Monty’s. Tim travelled to many beautiful places and always planned to retire on an island and live in a hut somewhere warm and easy going.

Tim was preceded in death by his Dad and Mom and big brother Jim Edwards. He is survived by his former wife Darragh and stepdaughter Meg, brother Mike (Jackie) Nelson, sisters Janis (Chris) Fisher, Carole (Steve) Dustin and sister-in-law Faye Edwards, 9 nephews and nieces, 19 great-nephews and nieces and his faithful dog Snoopy and cat with an attitude Sassy. Tim was the Uncle that bought guitars and stadium horns for the kids at Christmas and just smiled at his siblings while doing it! He loved to play a good hand of cribbage. He was a friend you could always count on. Tim was a rock to his family, always there when needed. A strong, independent, loving man who we will miss every single day.

Graveside services will be at the Old Susanville Cemetery by the Historic Courthouse at 1:00 p.m. August 24, 2019. Reception to follow at the Montacola Club House on South Lassen Street.
