Warren John Nelson

May 18, 1939 — May 27, 2024


Warren John Nelson, age 85, passed away on Monday, May 27, 2024 at Webster Manor Assisted Living in Omro. He was born on May 18, 1939, to the late John and Margaret (Schmidt) Nelson. 

After graduating from the Racine County School of Agriculture, he pursued a career in education, ultimately earning his undergraduate and master's degrees from UW-Whitewater and UW-La Crosse, respectively.

From his early days as an elementary school teacher to his later roles as a supper club owner, printing company employee, and ultimately retiring from Miles Kimball in Oshkosh, Warren's work ethic and varied interests defined him. Warren was also an active member of the Lion’s Club for many years. However, it was his fervor for tractors, particularly John Deere models, that truly encapsulated his spirit. Warren's collection of tractors ranged from real-life machines to miniature toy tractor replicas, and he found joy in attending tractor shows, including the renowned events in Iowa that he frequented.

Among his many hobbies and endeavors, Warren remained a devoted fan of the Minnesota Vikings, cheering on his favorite team through victories and defeats. 

Warren is survived by his nephews, David (Dorina) Nelson and Paul (Dawn) Nelson and several cousins.

In addition to his parents, Warren was preceded in death by his brother, Gerald Nelson, and sisters-in-law, Carol and Sue Nelson.

A private graveside service will be held at West Lawn Memorial Park in Racine.

Warren's family and friends extend their gratitude to Oshkosh Family, Inc., Webster Manor, and Heartland Hospice for the exceptional care and support they provided during his time of need.
