    Dale G. Nelson was born May 19, 1937, in Fresno, CA, to Palmer Nelson and Margaret (Foreman) Nelson. Dale grew up in San Luis Obispo, CA, graduating from high school there. He joined the Navy in 1955, serving until 1958. He attended Cal Poly in the late 50s, and then moved to Nevada to work on a ranch, and become a farrier. Following that, he led groups into the back country of the Sierra Nevada Mountains with pack horses. He moved to Oregon in the 60s, where he managed his 700 hundred acre ranch with 70 head of grade cattle. He also worked a second full time job for Roseburg Lumber until his retirement.

    Dale had many hobbies that he enjoyed and excelled at, including rodeo as a young man, riding broncs and roping, and later building black powder rifles and competing in regional traditional matches with his son and grandchildren. He also enjoyed videography, metal detecting, and especially making everyone around him laugh are all only a small part of what his legacy will tell.

    Dale passed away March 27, 2018, in Roseburg, OR, surrounded by family and friends. He is already terribly missed by his family and friends, and those fellow veterans that he faithfully supported through volunteer service with the American Legion, and associated veterans’ volunteer opportunities.

    I enjoyed reading posts written by him.
    And a longstanding member who was a "fixture" here.

    He will be missed.

    A loss to the community and his family & friends.

    God Bless and keep a good man.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Blessed was my time with you
    Though the miles were far, and the posts were few
    I'll always be with you, in a spiritual way
    As a piece of my heart went with you this day

    May God grant peace and comfort to his family and friends.
