Lloyd Lavon Nelson, a beekeeper extraordinaire buzzed into heaven on September 7, 2018. Born August 8, 1933 in Genola, Utah to Aldon and Roberta Nelson. Lloyd served a mission in Southern California, LA Mission. After he returned home he met and married his “Sweetheart” Darlene Peart. Lloyd and Darlene recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with all their family on a Caribbean cruise.
Lloyd loved beekeeping and was very knowledgeable and had a great respect for the bees and making honey. Lloyd had a green thumb and everything he touched grew beautifully. Lloyd was avid reader, loved history, and was a scriptorian. He loved the gospel of Jesus Christ and loved serving in the temple.
Lloyd outlived all his siblings, which was his goal. Lloyd is survived by his wife Darlene Nelson and children, Rae Ann Warner, Guy (Beth) Nelson, Mary Jane (Todd) Higley, 9 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Lloyd will be greatly missed.
