John Dominic Nelson
John Dominic Nelson, age 63, passed away January 8, 2023 at Sanford hospital in Sioux Falls, SD.
John was born on April 14, 1959 to Martin and Eileen Nelson in Sioux Falls. He grew up in the Cathedral district surrounded by his large family of eight siblings, lots of aunts and uncles, and tons of cousins.
Growing up, John loved that he was a “Northender”, playing foosball and riding in convertibles. John was very active and won several awards for physical fitness at the Boy’s Club.
John had a talent for building things and was a co-owner in Nelson Construction. It was a skill that led him to Las Vegas, where he could also indulge in one of his favorite games: poker. His gift for bluffing was only surpassed by his gift of gab.
John enjoyed being an uncle and was a great brother. He was loved and will be missed by his family. He is survived by Marty (Lonie) Nelson, David (Dorothy) Nelson, Duane (Sally) Nelson, Bernadette Nelson, Jay Nelson, and Joseph (Alicia) Nelson. He was preceded in death by his loving parents, sister Marleen Flannery and brother Richard Nelson.
Visitation will be Saturday, January 14, at Barnett-Lewis Funeral Home with family present 2-4 pm. A rosary will be prayed at 3pm.
