GRANT CAHOON NELSON, of Stirling, passed away peacefully in the Raymond Hospital on January 4th, 2020 at the age of 74.

Grant was a beloved member of the Stirling community. He dedicated his life to loving his family and leaving them a legacy of the things most important to him: work, worship, play, and service. He had a talent for being a leader and knew how to set goals and get things accomplished. He was able to use this talent to grow his family farm, Nelson Family Ranches, to serve as Bishop and in other church responsibilities, and to support his community as the Lion’s Club President. He took great joy out of supporting his grandchildren in all that they were involved in.
