With a saddened heart, the family of Nelson Astruwalt Barrera, Jr. announce his passing on the morning of February 20, 2018 at the age of 28. We will fondly remember his loving heart, beautiful smile, great sense of humor, and contagious laugh. He will forever be cherished in our hearts. We pray that God wraps his loving arms around Nellie and his entire family.
