      Obituary:
      Joseph D. Nelson, born April 5, 1923, in Boise, Idaho, to Emma Nelson, died suddenly and unexpectedly at home August 27, 1998, of heart failure.

      Joe lived in Logan in his early years, graduated from the University of Utah, and lived and worked in Salt Lake. Joe retired from the Salt Lake City School District where he had taught history for many years at both West and Highland High Schools, and was then a Psychologist for the Salt Lake City School District. Joe was a World War II veteran and a recipient of the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Joe loved many things, including photography, golf, gardening, reading, and travel. In his traveling he had been to all seven continents, having just this year been to Antarctica. He had been on several photographic safaris to Africa, and cruised on the Nile River. His love of reading combined with his interest in history made historical novels a favorite of his. He would spend many hours reading on his patio that overlooked his garden. Joe loved to putter, and especially to putt. Joe went golfing many times a week, including the morning of the day he died. He was a member of the LDS Church.

      He is survived by Karma Albiston (sister), John A. Nelson ("brother"), Catherine Nelson (Niece), Patricia N. Madsen (Niece), and was "Uncle Joe" to many great and great great nieces and nephews. Part of his written instructions in the event of death were to contact "anyone who might be interested in the final state of my health!!"
