Obituary for Philip "Phil" Nelson
On Sunday November 5, 2017, after a very courageous battle with cancer, and surrounded by his family, Philip Melville Nelson met his Saviour face-to-face. Meeting him in Heaven were his precious wife Kay, his parents Mel and Glenna, his brother John, his sister-in-law Cindy and his nephew Brian. Missing him dearly are his beloved Rosemary Samwell, his kids Heather Hooker (Dave), and Graeme Stevenson (Brenda). Forever missing their wonderful “Poppy” are his grandchildren and great-grandchildren Charlie and Meghan, Alex and Sophie, Stephanie, Emma, Megan, Joey, Abbie, Hayleigh, Carson and Kay. Phil also leaves behind his brother Tim (Lois), and a very special niece and nephew Lori Morris, and Steve (Natalie), and great nieces and nephew Emilee, Colton, and Mackenzie. Phil also leaves behind his lifelong friend Rick Biro (Pat). Phil was an avid train enthusiast, a trucker with Keith Hall Transport, a talented drummer at church and with praise band, Shiyr. Friends will be received at the DENNIS TOLL FUNERAL HOME, 55 Charing Cross Street, Brantford on Thursday November 9, 2017 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. Service in the chapel on Friday at 11 a.m. Interment Paris Cemetery. If you wish to make a donation in honour of Phil, gifts may be made to the Juravinski Hospital or Shenstone Baptist Church. Safe in the arms of Jesus.
