As one of his caregivers for 5 years, I can say George Nelson was always a gentleman, and other residents where he lived recognized that trait also. A spiffy dresser every day, making certain everything was right. I assured people that the gentleman in him made working for him a real pleasure. At times it seemed like he was taking care of me rather than the other way around; trying to put me in and out of the elevator first, wanting assurance I was going to eat something, sharing sections of the newspaper, asking if I was OK if I coughed or sneezed, many "Thank yous" through out the day for simple courtesies I gave him, wanting to know that I had my car parked in a safe place, and always, always, a "Good night, take care getting home". Early on he entertained me with exciting stories from his life in the service during WWII and of his love for and closeness to his family. Family history in Texas was a great pride to him and I think his genealogy work is a treasure. A man of resilience, he did his several physical rehabilitation episodes as Duty but showed much displeasure at that requirement, and his recoveries were always the best and amazing to his therapists. He taught me an appreciation for the wake up vocals of Frank Sinatra in the mornings, solving puzzles in the daily newspaper, and how to play the harmonica, something he became famous for at his residence facilities, as well as his love of dancing. If I made him laugh, he sure could make me laugh too. I salute you, Mr. Nelson, and thank you for your service to our country.
