Charles Nelson Obituary

C. David "Dave" Nelson, age 78 of Liberty Township, Ohio; and previously of Estero, Florida and Indiana, Pennsylvania; passed away at his residence on Saturday, January 20, 2024. Dave was born in Indiana, Pennsylvania on October 17, 1945, to Robert James Nelson Sr. and Phyllis (Hilty) Nelson. Dave graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 1969.
