Words from Mike Poppler, Jack Tiedman, and Curtis Palodichuk 

Saturday, August 13th 2022 we unexpectedly lost our best friend and brother in a horrible and tragic accident while fishing on Elm Island Lake. Dan Nelson was the best friend anyone could ask for. Every day he lived his life to the fullest and was the center of our friend’s group. He never failed to leave a smile on anyone’s face and we know this loss will be difficult for so many of us to bear. 

We understand that this time will be extremely difficult for his mother Katie, his father Tim, and his sister Kayla. We would like to ask for help in donating toward the unexpected expenses for the memorial Dan deserves as well as any additional expenses their family may take on due to this loss. 

Dan Nelson was extremely loved and respected and this absence will be heavily felt in our community.
