NELSON, CEDRIC  
CEDRIC NELSON A life well-lived. Cedric Adrian Nelson departed this life Monday, July 27, 2015, at Nathan Adelson Hospice, Las Vegas, after his valiant fight with Pancreatic Cancer. He was born July 2, 1959, in Alexandria, Miss., to the late Mr. Lonnie Nelson Jr. and Mrs. Mary L Nelson. He was the middle child of three, his siblings, Billie Page of McGee, Miss., and Keith Nelson of Las Vegas. His strong will to live, unwavering faith in God, and the love and prayers of family, friends, and many supporters carried him through seven months of grueling chemotherapy. Yet, even throughout his own struggle with cancer, he reached out to others comforting them sitting nearby receiving their chemo treatments simultaneously. Known for his ease in frequent conversations with everyone, even total strangers, as a child, he possessed a contagious smile and an entertaining sense of humor. Throughout his life he maintained a sweet and simple demeanor that won the trust and hearts of many who even now are being changed by his witness of constant nurturing love and faith. His signature gift of joy shown through his constant smiling, laughter and joking around, will never be forgotten. He was united in holy matrimony to Kathy Artiaga Nelson May 29, 2010. They dedicated their lives and love to each other for several years. When Cedric became ill, Kathy lovingly became his caregiver. She unselfishly spent her days and nights by her husband's side. Cedric enjoyed life and loved his family, extended family and friends. His favorite music was Jazz and his lifelong pastimes were eating, learning, work, work and more work. His kind heart, gentle spirit and fun-loving wit will truly be missed by his loved ones and all who knew him or had the pleasure to come in contact with him. His education consisted of a bachelor of science in business administration from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. He leaves to cherish his loving memories, his devoted wife, Kathy; his mother, Mary; his daughters, Tatiana, Vannessa and Breanna of Las Vegas; his son, Shaun of Las Vegas; his brother, Keith of Las Vegas; sister, Billie Page of McGhee, Miss.; and granddaughter, Ealyn of Las Vegas; and too many beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and God-children to list or even count. He was something different to us all, yet the imprint he left on our hearts is the same. Our Lives are forever changed because of his life. Memories of him will bring each of us joy and perhaps a little laughter when we remember him as husband, son, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, family and friend. We will miss him so dearlyand even though we want him with us, God wants him more. Visitation for friends and family of Cedric Nelson will be 6-8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3. Service will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4,, both at Palm Eastern Mortuary, 7600 S. Eastern Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89123. Burial following at Palm Valley View Memorial Park.
