(Former Tiny Township Police Officer and Fire Chief)
Passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of his family on Thursday, January 8, 2015 at the Georgian Bay General Hospital, Midland. Nelson King of Elmvale (formerly of Wyevale), in his 78th year. Dear husband of 56 years, and best friend of Ruth (nee Bertram). Treasured father of Debbie & Paul Craddock, Michelle & Will Schepers and Charlie & Tanya King, all of Elmvale. Incredibly proud and much loved poppa of Jessica-Lynn (Adam), Jennalee (Kyle), Marc (Jennifer), Graham (Kristen), Emma (Colin), Rowan, Owen, Nevin and Tye. Adoring great poppa of Ella, Harrison and Benjamin. Brother of Jean and Ethel. Predeceased by his parents Charles and Blanche King and his sister Doreen. He will be fondly remembered by his brothers and sisters in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He enjoyed sports, a great game of cards, puttering around in his shop, and a fun party. Nelson found great contentment in the outdoors whether his was on the water, in the bush or working the land. He was a lifelong enthusiastic hunter, trapper and fisherman. He enjoyed the peace of his favorite fishing hole and the excitement of ‘the hunt’. He will likely spend eternity sitting in the perfect tree stand.
