Mark Lynn Nelson

February 19, 1957 ~ December 9, 2021 (age 64)


Mark Lynn Nelson, age 64,  of Mineral City (New Cumberland), left this earth to receive his heavenly reward on Thursday, December 9th, 2021. 
He was born February 19th, 1957, in Dover, Ohio, son of the late Robert and JoAnne (Ohler) Nelson. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his mother-in-law Mildred Alsept and nephews Jason Ohler and Takota Alsept. 

Mark was a kind-hearted, generous soul, always willing to help someone in need. Possessing a quick wit, he enjoyed telling jokes, firework displays, throwing parties, decorating for holidays, and constructing an ice rink for his ice skating enthusiasts. Mark enjoyed playing sports like baseball, waterskiing, bowling, playing chess, and most of all, golf. He was proud of his multiple holes in one and fondly spoke of his golf vacations he took with his friends. He could tell you every rule to any game and always knew how to win. 

He owned and operated Nelson Construction, building magnificent homes throughout several counties in Northeast Ohio. He prided himself in knowing that he never had to return to his finished projects. He will be forever missed. 

Survived by his wife, Shari L. (Alsept) Nelson (celebrating their 43rd wedding anniversary on May 20th), daughters, Dr. Amber (TJ) Sanatore of New Cumberland, Ashli (Cory Shoaf) Nelson of Massillon, and  Katie Beitzel and Elizabeth (Brian Breining) Nelson, both of Bolivar,  Best friend and son-in-law, Corey Beitzel of Bolivar,  grandsons Noah Sanatore, Sam Sanatore, Mason Beitzel, and Brody Beitzel, brothers, Richard (Ruth) Ohler, Guy (Val) Nelson, and Chris Nelson, all of Mineral City,  sister Kathy Helwig of Bolivar,  brothers-in-law Dennis (Carol) Alsept of Bolivar, David (Tammy) Alsept of Canton, Tim (Vicesaha) Alsept of Florida, sisters-in-law Sue (Tom) Kahler and Tina Levengood, both of Bolivar.
