Interment was in the Holly Cemetery with the German Funeral Home in charge.

Pallbearers were Clarence, Hobart, and Bert Poteet, Harold Cooperman, Wade Hollenbeck and Jack Brooks.

Surviving are his wife, Pearl Nelson, of Steele; two brothers, Robert and J.D. Nelson, and a sister, Mrs. Louise Cain, all of Blytheville.
