General Lee Nelson

February 23, 1938 — January 4, 2022

General Lee Nelson, 83, a resident of Berwick, passed away peacefully, Tuesday, January 4, 2022, at his home, surrounded by his loving family.

Lee was born February 23, 1938, in Kiblah, Arkansas, and reared in Ida, LA; the son of Charles Henry Nelson and Beatrice Evans Eubanks.

Lee retired from Halliburton after 35 years. After retirement, he did contract work with Baker and Tri-Point. He was a hard worker who was a good provider for his family. Lee was a friendly person who regularly talked with strangers. He was a gentle giant, but protected his loved ones when needed. His sense of humor made everyone’s lives more fun, and he kept that sense of humor until the end.

Lee was preceded in death by his parents, Charles Henry Nelson and Beatrice Evans Eubanks; son, Jeffrey Nelson; son-in-law, Timmy Chaisson; brother, Charles Nelson; four half-brothers, Fred, Leroy, Francis, and Jesse Nelson; half-sister, Myrtle Baggett; brother and sisters-in-laws, Johnny and Evelyn Percle, Jessie and Elaine Voisin, Bill Darce, Kennon Beadle, and Lee Fontenot; three grandchildren, Chad Jr., Taylor, and Emma Nelson.

The family would like to give a special thanks to all of Lee’s caregivers who made his life more comfortable during his time of need.
