RIP - Nelson Beasley Jr.

On Sunday October 15, 2017, after coming home to Poppa and Grandma Lopez from working late at Walmart, Nelson Beasley Jr. got on his beloved bike to take a late night/early morning ride.

Unfortunately, Nelson Jr. was hit by a vehicle/driver on Frankwood Ave, who left him there after hitting him, and Nelson lost his life.

Nelson Jr. grew up in Reedley, CA and loved playing Basketball at Immanuel High School and Reedley College.  Nelson was excited and motivated to further his education at College of the Sequoias and to make his mark on the world. 

Nelson loved his bike and found a peace being out on those back roads of the central valley.  He will be missed by all he knew.

I am Kathy Lopez's (Nelson Jr.'s mom) sister, Teresa Lopez Davis.  I live in San Jacinto, California and am helping my parents Tony and Sylvia Lopez, Kathy, Nelson Sr., and Coreen with working through the many details of Nelson Jr.'s passing.  In order to assist Kathy and Nelson, Kathy has asked me to manage all withdrawals and the donations will be given to Kathy and Nelson to complete payment for all funeral expenses.

Funds raised will be used to pay for funeral expenses, which include church services, funeral home expenses, flowers for the church and grave site, Cemetary costs (including headstone ), and repass expenses (hall rental, insurance, food for guests), so will be needed/used as soon as possible.  

All of Nelson Jr's family, mother Kathy Lopez, and father Nelson Beasley Sr, will advise all donors when services will be held and welcome all who would like to pay their respects and celebrate Nelson Jr.'s life.

Kathy Lopez will be in charge of final expenses.
