In loving memory ~
Loren Fraser Neilson passed away in the morning of April 25th, 2022 at the age of 60, in Nanaimo, B.C. His four-year battle with cancer showed his courage in facing life challenges with a smile. Before his last day Loren was surrounded by his family, including his loving wife and soulmate Jackie Neilson, his dedicated sons, Carl Neilson (with Mandy) and Tyler Neilson (with Deanna), and with his beautiful grandchildren, Adalyn, Ava, Brantley and Preston.
Loren is survived by his siblings and their families, Lance Neilson (with Margaret, Clayton, Justin and Brittany), Lane Neilson (with Louise, Ryan and Warren), Lisa Neilson (with Jeff , Kayla, Austin and Lauren) and Tracey Strashok (with Jeff ) along with brother-in-law James (Barry and Jonny), Aunt Rosemarie Mayan, and a host of loving great nieces and nephews, cousins, co-workers, and longtime friends from around Alberta, B.C. and his long-time home of Burns Lake.
Loren is predeceased by his father Edward Neilson and mother Sherrill Hoffort of Edmonton, Alberta.
Loren will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a devoted husband for 39 years, a loving father and grandfather, a keen fisherman with his sons, a natural and talented musician, and an avid snowmobiler. He was known as being kindhearted, with a great sense of humour, and made everyone he knew feel welcomed and loved.
In concordance with Loren’s last wishes, there is no memorial service or celebration of life. Loren’s Facebook page will remain open, and all are welcome to post memories and final words to him there.
