The Globe and Mail (Ottawa/Quebec Edition) - - BIRTH AND DEATH NOTICES -

The fam­ily of David Nel­son sadly an­nounces his pass­ing on No­vem­ber 2, 2019 af­ter 2 weeks of pal­lia­tive care at Hamil­ton Gen­eral.

David was a life-long learner, a vo­ra­cious reader and re­searcher. A mu­sic, opera ex­pert and a fine model maker, not to men­tion a unique sense of hu­mour. He was an en­thu­si­as­tic ath­lete with golf at Big Cedar, Sum­mit, The Na­tional and Big Bay Point in ad­di­tion to squash at The Gran­ite Club and Hart House. He en­cour­aged his fam­ily to be­come ath­letes.

David held Vice Pres­i­dent po­si­tions at Dou­ble­day Canada, McGraw-Hill and worked with John Allen at Thomas Allen. His pub­lish­ing vi­sion was to pro­vide his au­thors and book stores the best pos­si­ble ser­vice and sup­port.

The son of Ge­orge and Lilly Nel­son, David was hap­pi­est when he gath­ered and amused his chil­dren at the fam­ily cot­tage at Big Cedar Point. His chil­dren are Reed and Jill Nel­son, Fran­cie Nel­son Mitchell and Tib­bie and Fraser C lark. Grand­chil­dren are Emma and Ben Clark and Mered­ith and Jen­nifer Nel­son. His wife Frances is filled with won­der­ful mem­o­ries of 68 years to­gether. We all hon­our the to­tal sup­port and care given by his daugh­ter Tib­bie and brother in law Dr. David R F Smith.

A fam­ily cel­e­bra­tion will be held.
