Louis Kaufman Nelson, 82, of San Antonio, Texas passed away on April 18, 2017.

He was born in San Antonio on July 8, 1935. He attended Texas A&M where he played baseball for the Aggies and graduated in 1957. He married his high school sweetheart, Catherine Ann Hundley, on July 18, 1953. After college, Louis began his coaching career and later went into the banking business.

He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Ann; his children, Debbie Nelson and Robert (Buzzy) Nelson; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Louis' greatest joys were his family, the kids he coached throughout his coaching career, playing golf and spending time at his cabin in Wyoming with Ann. Louis never met a stranger and had such a generous and kind heart to all, especially his family. His family and friends will always remember his loving and out-going personality!
