Obituary of Ronald R Nesland
Please share a memory of Ronald to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Ron Nesland, 77, of Shelton, Washington, died peacefully in his home Monday January 9 th following a
battle with Cancer. He was preceded in death by his mother (Stella Nesland), father (Torkel Nesland)
and brother (Myron Nesland). Left behind to carry his memories and legacy are his wife Kathie,
daughter Kim, son Mike, granddaughter Tessa, brothers Bobby (LaVonne) and Kenny, sister Rhonda (Bob
Demick), and multiple nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A family man and outdoor enthusiast, Ron enjoyed family gatherings, camping trips, hunting, fishing
tinkering in his wood shop and yard, and winning almost every game he played (Monopoly, Uno, Bags,
Horseshoes, Parcheesi...). Ron was known as the animal whisperer since almost all animals instantly
loved Ron (and he loved them right back).
A proud Army veteran who served in Vietnam, Ron will be interred with military honors at the Tahoma
National Cemetery in Kent, Washington, with a gathering of friends and family to follow. Details are in
process and will be shared once finalized.
If desired, the family asks that memorials be made to the Wounded Warrior Project in Ron’s honor.
