Re: Very Sad News Today....

I think this photo sums up his always playful nature (and love of photography).



And here is a photo of him doing one of the things he loved.

I only met him once in person at the 06 xmas meet, but he was an awesome guy, and pm'ed me a couple times about one thing we shared in common... a passion for uber-hoppy beers.

my thoughts and prayers to his family. he will be missed.

RIP Lion

I never met the man, but spent some time getting his forum access squared away.

Thoughts & Prayers to the Nelson family

Re: Very Sad News Today....

That old SON OF A BITCH!!
I used to tell him, as long as he was around I wouldn't be the oldest (or for that matter the ugliest!) SOB driving a Cherokee....

Now what?

I wonder what I could get his XJ for??

Re: Very Sad News Today....

Indeed a very shocking news. He sent me his latest photos just a month ago. He was full of life.

Rest in peace Lion. You will be greatly missed. I will always think of you when I pick up a camera.

Re: Very Sad News Today....

I just received this email from a friend of Lion's:

----------------------------------------------------

Hi, I'm sending you this note because you are a friend of Lion, (Kent
Nelson).
(Or maybe I made a mistake, in which case- Sorry!)
I probably have your email address because Lion sent us both the same
announcements about his new photos.

We have some sad news. I'm sorry to say that our good friend Lion (Kent
Nelson) has recently left us behind in this world, and passed on. A
friend visited his casa yesterday Wed, March 5th 2008 because he didn't
return phone calls. He apparently departed while sleeping. The police
were notified, and his brother on the east coast. No word yet on when/
where a memorial will be held, but you can bet there will be one. Lion
was a popular guy and for good reason. He was cheerful and didn't have a
mean bone in his body. I've known him since 1994 when I joined the
RoughWheelers.

I've started an internet memorial for our friend here:
http://www.roughwheelers.com/pix/v/lion/
You may add your comments and/or photos. (Please do) Lion always loved
getting comments.

You may know Lion from his thousands of photos at PBase:
http://www.pbase.com/lion1934

It's now a safer world for garlic & broccoli. But we will miss Lion terribly.

Sadly,
Montego
