GRAFORD – Robert Nelson, of Graford, died March 28, 2014, at his home.
A memorial service is 2 p.m. Sunday, March 30, at Baum-Carlock-Bumgardner Chapel.
Robert worked for Dallas Production as a water hauler with more than 34 years of service; and to his credit out of those 34 years of service he never received a driving citation, even with more than 1 million miles of road under his belt. He loved his work, and it was fitting, because when not working Robert spent most of his free time by the water; either the river or on the lake. Robert was a veteran of the U.S. Army, serving in Vietnam.
He is survived by wife, Patricia Nelson, of Graford; children, Kay Nowak and spouse, Eddie, Frances Ferguson and spouse, Toby, and Clint Nelson and fiancé, Skye Mohn, all of Graford; grandchildren, Lacy Pippin and spouse, Scott, of Graford, Justin Ward and fiancé, Megan Reeves, of Mineral Wells, Kyndze Pendergraft, Ricky Ferguson, Lilly Porteous and Maddie Mohn Dodge; great-grandchildren, Brant Lee Pippin and Riggin Ward; sisters, Gail Barker and spouse, Wendell, of Mineral Wells, and Raylene Kainer and spouse, Ben, of Wasilla, Alaska; brothers-in-law, Billy Fred Nunley, Donny Nunley and Rocky Timmons; and brother and sister-in-law, Janice Reed and husband, Ernie.
He was preceded in death by former wife, Benda Timmons Nelson.
