Steven Nelson Obituary

Steven Frank Nelson, 63, of Brockton, suddenly passed away on January 15, 2024 when driving home. His loss is completely unexpected, and his family and friends are profoundly saddened.

Steven was born on January 2, 1961 to Priscilla and Charles Nelson in Weymouth at South Shore Hospital. He was one of six children; Chuck, David, Debra, Kerri and his late brother Lenny. He grew up in Brockton where he graduated High School and enlisted in the Army, completing basic training as an E1 at Fort Dix in New Jersey. 

Our Father went on to Marry his late wife Donna Nelson (Bishop). He leaves behind their two children; Daughter, Alexandra and Son, Matthew, as well as two Granddaughters; Gabriella Lynn and Julie Patricia. His immediate family makes up eight nieces and nephews; Nephew James, Nephew Alan, Niece Jamie and Nephew Cristian, Niece Tayler, Niece Brittany, Nephew, Owen and late Nephew, John.

Steven spent his younger years spending time with his lifelong friends, camping, and fishing. He enjoyed  playing darts, cribbage and cards. His favorite of all, was supporting Boston sports teams throughout the different seasons. Introducing his family to Ellis Haven CampGrounds was his way of engaging his family with the outdoors lifestyle. He loved all and had open arms for anyone who came his way. In return he was always loved and heard by his friends and family. 

Steven owned a home in Brockton for thirty years, where he loved his wife Donna, raised his children and grandchildren. He worked as a Maintenance Supervisor at Pembroke hospital to support his family. He was a natural born host, truly enjoying party planning. Constantly wanting to gather his family and friends together to celebrate life. Other people's laughter brought him his own comfort and joy. 

He was a father who coached his daughters soccer team, attended dance recitals, and created science projects. One who would rather have a house full of kids, just to be sure his own kids were safe. 

Steven and his son Matthew were best friends, they were tight from the very begining. Their favorite times were visiting BattleShip Cove, camping, traveling and dining at luxury eateries. Their bond grew as strong as a bond could be. Steven was proud of the man he grew to be. 

His most joy was his two Granddaughters, whom he loved, cherished and supported. He spent every day with them for two years. It kept him on his feet and driven to be the best he could. He gave all of his time, love and devotion to them each day. 

Steven Frank Nelson was a smart, funny, devoted family man, with a great personality and love to go around for all. He will be strongly missed but never forgotten. For he instilled into his family and friends what he needed too, in the time he was allowed too. He gave this life his all and we are all proud of him. We love you Steve, Son, Brother, Dad, Papa, Uncle and Friend.
