Seventeen-year-old Colton Nelson was a young man destined for greatness! Colton was a senior at East Central high school where he excelled in academics and athletics – specifically basketball, football and golf. In Colton’s “spare” time he was active in church, worked at the local grocery store, volunteered and spent unforgettable time creating long lasting memories with his long-time girlfriend, his loving parents, brother & sister, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles and extremely long list of friends.
On February 9th Colton was involved in a tragic car crash ending his life. Family, friends and the entire community are lost for words trying to comprehend. Colton’s family and friends are blessed to have been able to spend 17 years with him, yet wanting more.Colton was an inspiration to everyone he touched. Whether it be through Colton’s belongings, pictures, laughs, tears, thoughts - Colton will never be forgotten.
Please help support Colton and his family through this very difficult time.
