Obituary for Luther Harold Nelson (Lou)

November 24, 1944 - June 19, 2017
Leander, Texas | Age 72


Luther Harold Nelson (Lou) passed away on June 19, 2017. He fought a hard battle, but in the end, his body was too tired to fight anymore. He started having strokes in 1995 and he fought so hard to keep going and he truly did for many more years, but on June 19, it was just time to let go and go be in Heaven, free of pain.

Lou was born in West Virginia in 1944 and joined the Air Force after high school. He has 2 sons, Gary Nelson and Hal Nelson, and 3 step children, Amy Maddox, Scott McCracken and Stephanie Hedrick. He has 11 grandchildren and one great granddaughter. He has one brother, Garland, that lives in Ohio. He and his wife, Carolyn Nelson, just celebrated 23 wonderful years of marriage on April 30, but had been together for 31 years of his life.

Lou and Carolyn owned a Real Estate and Mortgage company and loved helping others find and achieve buying their dream home. Lou was one of the first mortgage brokers in Austin Tx. He was a home builder as well.

Lou and Carolyn had a love that you don't find every day. He worshipped her and everyone knew he did. She made him so happy. They always had fun together. It was a special relationship that you don't see often. In his last few months, she really brought a smile to his face, along with the strawberry milkshakes she would bring him while in the nursing home!

Lou was a very strong man and very honest and straight forward, but he had the biggest heart of all. He could cry easily, he was so very sensitive. He would cry just mentioning his children or grandchildren, he really loved them so much. He was proud of all his family, and everyone was proud of him and his strength. In the last few months, the family knew that his time had come to give up the battle. He will be greatly missed. He was a very special man.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 6:00 PM on Friday, June 30, 2017 in the Weed Corley Fish Chapel at 1200 S. Bagdad Road, Leander, TX. 78641
