Dedicated would be the word to best describe Dave. He was a devoted husband and father, who treasured time spent with Christina, his children and grandchildren. Dave was also hard working and willing to work long hours on the job. He spent 28 years with Welsh Excavating Company in Harrison, Ohio as Transportation Manager. During his off times he enjoyed outdoor activities which included boating, riding quads, hunting, fishing, mowing and keeping the yard in order. Dave also loved to travel and was a long-suffering Bengals fan.
He is survived by his wife Christina; daughters Tasha Nelson of Batesville; sons Michael Nelson of Harrison, Ohio, Paul Nelson of Batesville; sister Pam Shaw; brother Dan Anderson and seven grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he is also preceded in death by his daughter Shannan Mirick and brother Rick Nelson.
