It is with sadness that we accept the passing of Reg Nelson on October 28, 2010 at the age of 47 years after a courageous battle with cancer. Reg was born August 25, 1963 in Drumheller and raised on a farm south of Rumsey, Alberta. He attended school in Rumsey and Morrin and after graduation carried on the farming tradition on the family farm. He married Sheila Schramm in 1984 and they have raised their four children in Trochu. He is survived by his wife, Sheila; four children Matthew, Colby, Emily and Julie; his parents Jim and Maureen Nelson; sisters Sharon (Lorne) Wagstaff, Wendy (Manley) Dettmer, Kathy (Norman) D'Arcy, Nancy (Glen) Riep; numerous nieces and nephews and countless friends. He is predeceased by his father-in-law Eugene Schramm, and his grandparents Leonard and Anna Nelson and Wilfred and Susan Pineau. Outside of his family, the love and passion of Reg's life was cars. He was respected and admired for his attention to detail and quality work restoring vehicles, particularly Mustangs. Reg was a former member of AMAC of Calgary and a current of Ford Central of Red Deer and Three Hills Street Freaks .
