Kyle Nelson Memorial Support

It is with heavy hearts that we gather around The Nelson Family as they prepare to do the unimaginable and lay Kyle to rest.  

On July 17, 2020, Kyle was in an accident on the Wenatchee River, which resulted in his untimely and tragic death.  Kyle was out with his amazing recovery community, enjoying a beautiful day on the Wenatchee River.  

The shock of this loss is unbearable, and Kyle's family is in need of support.  If you can help by donating here to support the cost of Kyle's funeral expenses, it is appreciated.  All money raised will go directly to Guy and Vicki Nelson, Kyle's parents.

Kyle's family is an enormous, loving, group of people that bend over backwards to take care of everyone around them.  Our hearts are hurting with Kyle's parents, Guy and Vicki; his Grandma Wita (Alicia Miller); his sister, Jen, brother in law, Bryan, and his dearest niece and nephews, Emmett, Nola, and Hank.  Additionally, Kyle is surrounded with TONS of Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins, who are all over Washington, California, and Texas. The impact of this loss no doubt is weighing heavily on each of these loved ones, who adored their nephew and cousin.

In lieu of flowers at this time, please also consider donating to Kyle's Oxford Chapter.  This thriving community was a lifeline for Kyle, who benefited greatly from the support that he received from so many amazing people on his road through recovery. Checks can be sent in Kyle's Memory written to Oxford House Chapter 16, PO Box 3948, Wenatchee, WA 98801.

Thank you for your love and consideration during this awful time.
