Thomas Nelson Obituary

Mishawaka- Thomas Robert Nelson, 52, passed away on Wednesday February 14, 2024. Thomas was born on May 31, 1971, in Campbell, California to Thomas E. Nelson and Judith (Heflin) Nelson.

            Thomas worked as a machinist in the Michiana area. He loved to cook and create new dishes in the kitchen. His skills in the kitchen led him to hosting many family get togethers. Time with family and friends was most important to Thomas. He also loved watching documentaries but most specifically, about history and the bands he loved such as AC/DC. Thomas was a rock fan his entire life who enjoyed going to concerts and the adventures that would coincide. Thomas was a free spirit who left his mark on everyone he met. Whether it was with a laugh or a dish he was always making someone smile.

            Thomas is survived by his daughter, Taylor Nelson; son Randall (Jessica) Nelson; father, Thomas Nelson; his brothers, Dennis Nelson, and John (Jennifer) Nelson as well as his nieces and nephews. Thomas was preceded in death by his mother Judith Nelson, and his sister Christine Nelson.
