Obituary

Gary “Stick” Nelson of Harriman, TN went home to be with the Lord early Monday morning.   Gary was born on November 12, 1958. He was a graduate of Harriman High School.  Gary was a Boilermaker and retired from TVA where he had many roles including Outage and Work Control Manager positions at the Kingston Fossil Plant. He loved to work and started at a very young age, surveying with Fred Moore. 

 

If you asked Gary what his greatest accomplishment was, he would tell you having his son Scott with Maria Vichot-Nelson. Gary was known for his love of music and speed. You would often find Gary at the races. He also loved fishing and working on equipment, especially motors. He spent the last five years in love with  Shi-Tzus. Gary was intelligent and funny with a unique sense of humor. 

 

Gary is preceded in death by his father, Charles Walter “Sheriff” Nelson, his mother Alice Ruth Roberts, his brother David Nelson and sister Margie West. 

 

He is survived by his son, Charles Scott Nelson, his siblings Sherry and Mickey Baxendale, Diane McAllister and Angela Strange, and many special nieces and nephews. Along with his special brother, Greg L Smith.
