The Story of Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Service – 135 N. Center Avenue, Gaylord, MI

Chuck & Patricia Nelson opened the Nelson Funeral Home, Inc. on July 11, 1965.  This July we will celebrate 50 years in business in Gaylord, MI.

Chuck became a Mortuary Science Licensee in 1963, worked in Detroit and moved to Gaylord in 1965.  He attributes his continuing success to the fact that he and his wife, Patricia (Wattson) Nelson, a native of Gaylord, came to town and established themselves in an incredible community that believes in the value of funeral service.

In operating the Nelson Funeral Home, Inc., Chuck empowers his funeral directors to achieve excellence in the funeral industry. He encourages them to serve families by listening to their wishes and assisting in making the funeral or memorial service meaningful, unique and personalized.  The Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Service staff is compassionate and professional. The Nelson family takes great pride in living and working in Gaylord and the entire staff is honored to serve the community.

Funeral service has changed over the years. With cremation now being such a large part of the business, the Nelson Funeral Home, Inc. added onto their name to better reflect the services they offer. We can now be known as the Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Service of Gaylord, MI.
