Mike Nelson died April 2, 2019. He was born October 17, 1956.
Mike was preceded in death by his father James Nelson Sr., his mother Evelyne Nelson Marschke, his brother James Nelson Jr., and his special angel-granddaughter Mercy Shyann Sweeney.
Mike is survived by his daughter Amber Starr Sweeney; his grandson James Thomas Sweeney; his brothers Wayne Nelson, Bruch Marschke (Tammy) and sister Dawn Marschke, as well as many other family, friends, and loved ones.
Mike was born and raised on the Gulf Coast. He married one time in his short life 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, his granddaughter who is in Heaven with her granddad, and his grandson J.T. Mike had strong family morals. His family was the world.
He went to B.C. Rains High School and never met a stranger. He was funny and free-willed, with a smile that could light up the night. The old 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.
