Mike Nelson died April 2, 2019. He was born October 17, 1956. Mike was preceded in death by his father James Nelson, Sr., mother Evelyne Nelson Marschke, brother James Nelson, Jr., and his special angel -- granddaughter Mercy Shyann Sweeney.
Mike is survived by his daughter Amber Starr Sweeney, grandson James Thomas Sweeney, brothers Wayne Nelson, Bruce Marschke (Tammy), and sister Dawn Marschke.
Mike was born and raised on the Gulf Coast, married one time to the love of his life Vickie L. Nelson. In his short life Mike was blessed with one daughter, Amber Starr. In Mike's eyes and heart she hung the moon. Amber blessed her dad with two grandchildren: Mercy Shyann, who is in Heaven with her granddad, and a grandson, J.T. Mike had strong family morals. His family was the world to him. He went to B.C. Rains High School and never met a stranger, funny and free-willed. A smile that could light up the night. The saying, "God broke the mold when He made him" holds very true in Mike's case, because he was one of a kind. He was loved by many and will be missed by all. Fly high, Mike, until the family are all together again. Visitation April 11, 2019 Kenmar Family Funeral Home 1:00pm till 3:00pm funeral to Follow at 3:00pm.
