Paul Lee Nelson, who was age 72, passed away at his home in Bend, Oregon, on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.  Local media reports that his family was with him at the time of his death.


The Bend Bulletin says that “A Graveside Service will be held on Friday, November 16, 2018 at 1pm at Tumalo Pioneer Cemetery, Tumalo, Oregon 97701.

PaulLeeNelsonManufacturedHomeTransporterDailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsNelson “was born on June 22, 1946, in Little Falls, Minnesota, to Edward Lloyd and Lorraine Annetta Nelson. He started school in a one-room schoolhouse in Cushing, Minnesota, and went on to graduate from North Salem High School, in Salem, Oregon, in 1964,” according to the Gazette Times.

  • Paul served in the United States Navy from 1964 through 1968.
  • He married Judith (Judy) Ann Klauss, of Salem, on November 5, 1966, in Salem. Together, they had a son, Dennis Lee Nelson, and a daughter, Shelley LeeAnn Nelson.
  • Paul and Judy enjoyed traveling together as well as spending time with family and friends. Annually, they would go to Cherry Hill, New Jersey, Yuma, Arizona, and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
  • Paul is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Judy; their son, Dennis; daughter; Shelley; and grandson, Tyler Aaron Nelson; along with his brothers Edward (Larry), David, and Alfred (Al), and sisters, Kaye and Beverly.
  • Nelson’s hobbies included golfing, hunting, fishing, vintage cars and spending time with his family and friends. He was known for his zest for life and road trips in the family motor home with his wife, Judy.

Paul spent most of his professional life working in the manufactured home industry, specifically in transportation as either a truck driver or managing trucking services. He left that industry for a few years to own an auto parts store in Lebanon. He was a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks for 40 years, American Legion for 23 years, and was a founding member of the Rolling Oldies Car Club of Lebanon,” said the Gazette Times, which added that “Burial services will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, November 16, 2018, at the Tumalo Pioneer Cemetery. A celebration of life will be held next summer in the Willamette Valley for all friends and family.”
