Obituary for Warren Bryant Nelson

Warren Bryant  Nelson
Nelson, Warren Bryant, age 97, passed peacefully into Eternal Life at his residence at Sunrise Senior Living Center of Des Peres on Wednesday, March 11, 2020. Betty Lou Nelson, the love of his life and wife of 72 years, predeceased him in 2017.

Warren was born to Oscar William Nelson and Eda Caroline (Hokanson) Nelson on September 29, 1922 in Manhattan, Kansas. He met Betty at Kansas State University, where he studied Agricultural Economics and graduated in May 1942.

On his 20th birthday, in September 1942, Warren hitchhiked to Kansas City and enlisted in the Army Air Corps. He became a navigator in the 820th Bombardment Squadron flying 52 missions in a B-25 Mitchell bomber against the Japanese occupied Marshall Islands. He achieved the rank of 1st Lieutenant and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal with 3 Oak Leaf Clusters.

Warren is survived by three of his four children: Barbara Ann Goldman, Marcia Nelson Wilson (William) and Robert Warren Nelson (Rev. Dr. Barbara Heck). Warren’s son, David William Nelson, predeceased him when he was killed in the World Trade Center tragedy on September 11, 2001, leaving wife Elizabeth Crawford and two children.

Warren and Betty have seven loving grandchildren: Paul Wagner (Ainee), Christopher Wilson (Hailey), Jordan Wilson (Rachel), Ingrid, Arthur, Frederick and Eric Nelson; they have two great grandchildren: Sinalei and Penelope Wagner.

Special thanks to the staff at Sunrise Senior Living Center of Des Peres and to Kindred Hospice of St Louis, especially Tally Crosby, RN and The Reverend Jeanne Zimmerman. We also thank Pastor Emily Gillula of Trinity Lutheran Church in Kirkwood.

Warren will be buried in a private service at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery on Friday March 20. There will be a memorial service to celebrate Warren’s life at a later date.
