Troy E. Nelson
July 25, 1962 - August 3, 2013
Troy Nelson was a loving husband, father, uncle and friend. Born July 25, 1962 in Jamestown, N.Y., he moved to Arizona during his high school years and was a Payson resident for almost 20 years.
He greatly enjoyed the Rim Country and referred to it as his back yard. He was a football fanatic and an excellent Santa; his laughter was the absolute best, and he had a heart of gold.
He is survived by his loving wife, Joi and children, Christopher (aka Sty Wesley) and Mary, all from Payson; as well as many extended family members and friends from Upper State New York to the outer banks of North Carolina.
He was preceded in death by his father, mother and both of his brothers.
No services will be held.
Troy will be sorely missed.
