Harold Arvid Nelson

Harold Arvid Nelson of Prescott, AZ went to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 23, 2022.


Born in Mead, Nebraska, Harold graduated from Fremont High School in 1957, and married his sweetheart, Jan (Sandau) Nelson October of 1962.


Harold was a self taught artist from a young age. God blessed him with the ability to capture life in his paintings and bronze sculptures. The hope of his work was to bring a smile and to touch a sweet memory of the observer and recall something long ago of happier moments, softer, gentler days, and escape to another place and time, if only for a moment. He liked to bring a little beauty back to the world, getting a feeling of really being there, and making the observer aware of beauty by small glimpses most people may fail to notice.


Harold was preceded in death by his mother, Dorothy Tank Zaro; father, Harold Arvid Nelson Sr.; and a brother, Ronald Nelson.


Harold is survived by his wife, Jan; daughter, Kirstin (Nelson) Fuller and her husband, Forrest Fuller; son, Jason Nelson and his wife, Elaine Nelson; two grandchildren, Noah and Emma Nelson; sister in-law, Kas Sandau Baird and her husband, Bill; brothers in-law, Jim Sandau and his wife, Carol, and Jerry Sandau and his wife, Laurie; and also many nieces and nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, and cousins. He dearly loved all of them.


Harold believed, “When we die, we leave behind all we have and take with us all we are.”
