Coleton Nelson


The Nelson family, parents Brenda and Wayne, and sisters Chrystie and Alecsa, would like to extend their deepest thanks and appreciation to all those who have helped them through this most painful and difficult time of losing our son and brother, Coleton Nelson “#10”.

Although there are too many to name individually, we would like to acknowledge the tremendous efforts and contributions made by the following individuals or groups: the Parent Advisory Committees of North Otter Elementary School, Coghlan Fundamental School, and Betty Gilbert Elementary School, Aldergrove Minor Hockey Association, Michael McRae, Vice President of Marketing for Sofina Foods Inc., Aldergrove Save-On Foods, Sven Freybe of Freybe Gourmet Foods, Roger Antoniazzi of Canada Bread (Langley), Travis Lowe of Maple Leaf Foods, and Ken Clark of Overwaitea Food Group.

We would also like to extend our deepest thanks to our family, friends, and the community at large for the overwhelming love and support we have received. A special thanks to Uncle Wendall Warman for printing the remembrance hockey cards of Coleton.

To all the above mentioned, your kindness in supplying food, meals, flowers, fund-raising, emotional support and just being there have been so appreciated.

And lastly, to all of you who have contributed to the Coleton Nelson #10 Trust Fund, thanks again for your amazing generosity. Our son’s legacy will be to help provide financial assistance to other young hockey players who love the game just as he did.

Thanks again.

Brenda, Wayne, Chrystie and Alecsa Nelson
