Michael Ronald Nelson, 27, of Plymouth MA is now his children’s superhero in the sky. Michael attended Plymouth South High School graduating class of 2010. Michael worked in many fields such as culinary, landscaping, painting, and most recently a Journeyman for Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 17. His true passions included MMA and working out. He enjoyed watching our local sports teams especially football on Sundays with his brothers and father. Michael was a father to Jaxon Troy and Aurora Skylar, son to Carol and Mike, brother to Mark and David, committed boyfriend to Brittany, and friend to some of the luckiest people. Michael enjoyed snuggling with his son, even to wake up with some toes in his nose. He loved his children and dog, Diesel, more than anyone else in the world. The highlight of his week was playing T-Ball with his son. He was always there to help fix his stance, placing his hands the right way and telling him he would knock it out of the park. Michael had an uncanny way of brightening up your day with his smile and infectious laugh. He was always good for a joke at the worst time. Michael enjoyed getting his hands dirty in his projects, watching modern Marvel movies and eating more candy than one human could eat! Michael, known as Mikey, to his girlfriend, was the sweetest guy and unselfishly would to give the shirt off his back to anyone. He had an amazing sense of humor that in fact made himself laugh before the joke was over!
He will be greatly missed and forever loved. Michael is survived by his son, Jaxon; daughter, Aurora; along with their mother and his girlfriend, Brittany Hathaway. Michael will be forever cherished by his parents, Carol (Holzman) and Michael Nelson. He will always be remembered by his brothers, Mark Nelson, wife Vicki Nelson (Sousa) and David Nelson, wife Paige Nelson (Thrasher). Michael was a spirited uncle to his niece and nephews, Jordan, Jayden and Emersyn. He is survived by his uncle, Steven Nelson and his husband Dana Peterman. Along with extended family, he was very much supported by his friends, including his soul-brothers Timmy Sheehan and Justin Graham.
