Obituary of Nelson MacDonald
On July, 16th 2022, it is with heavy hearts that we said goodbye to Nelson Floyd MacDonald. He was the most amazing and loving husband, father, brother, son (in law), grandfather (Big Daddy) and adored friend. Nelson was predeceased by his dad Floyd N MacDonald.
He is survived by his loving wife Kim of 25 amazing years; son Dillon (Rebecca); daughter Kayla (Kenny); grandsons, Elijah, Keelan and Dallan; mom Nancy MacDonald; amazing sister Kim (Jamie) Ouellette; niece Adrianna; nephew Tanner; mom and father-in-law Anne and David O’Driscoll, as well as his best friend and chosen brother Tim Potter.
By any definition, Nelson was an amazing man. To know him, was to love him. Nelson was so brave and strong throughout his journey. He kept a positive mindset throughout and never failed to make his loved ones smile. He never complained and chose to see the blessings and persevered through. He loved being outside, hunting, fishing and always had a project to work on. He always enjoyed sharing his hunting stories to friends. Nelson always made time to listen and chat about life and his walk with the Lord.
We truly want to thank the palliative family on 3E at the Chalmers Hospital. Your compassion was so comforting to us. Over the last 12 years, we’ve encountered amazing Doctors and Nurses, the extramural nurses, the emergency department, diagnostics, chemotherapy and radiation teams, 4SW for your compassion and care. You are all a family team and you cared for us through this time. Thank you doesn’t seem enough but please know we see you and you are amazing.
Please join us for a gathering to celebrate Nelson’s life. It will be held at McAdam’s Funeral Home, on Sunday, July 24, 2022, from 2 - 5 pm. In lieu of flowers, please make your donations to a charity of your choice.
