Craig M. Nelson, 61 of Dumont (formerly of Bergenfield), passed away on April 2, 2023. Beloved husband and best friend of Christine A. Nelson (nee Kennedy). Devoted son-in-law of Kathryn Kennedy & the late Thomas J. Kennedy. Cherished nephew of George & Ann Keever & the late Jack Keever. Predeceased by Lila and Richard Nelson. Loving brother of Donna, Laura, & Richard Nelson. Adored brother-in-law of Donna, Kathryn (Ira Miller), Neil (Janice), & Tom Kennedy. Devoted cousin to Jack & caring Uncle to Hannah, Michael, & Olivia. Loving Poppa to Stanley & Sugar.
Prior to his disability/illness, he worked at the Main Lock Shop since 1991 & considered his coworkers family. He was a lifetime member of the Bergenfield Elks. Though Craig could be a man of few words, he was kind and had a gigantic heart. One of his favorite lines was “I gotta go”, and so he did with a little piece of all our hearts. Rest in peace, buddy.
