Nelson Troyer, 60 of Apple Creek, husband to Grace, father to TaCara and Trenton, stepped peacefully into heaven in his perfect new body Friday, November 13 after a brief illness.
He was born near Sugarcreek on Nov 16, 1959 to Anna (Miller) and the late David Troyer. He worked at Stark Truss for 30 years and attended Wooster Church of the Nazarene. Nelson enjoyed watching the Browns and the Cleveland Indians and loved talking with people and watching his niece and nephew play basketball & football.
Nelson was the oldest of his siblings, Marlin (Marilyn), Orris (Betty), Richard (Kris), Leon (Joanna), Cindy (Merle) Yoder and Sandra (Marvin) Miller; and an uncle to 16 nieces and nephews.
In addition to his father, he was preceded in death by his grandparents, Orris and Susanna Troyer and John and Sarah Miller.
Due to widespread COVID there will be no calling hours or funeral.
The family thanks the Aultman ICU medical staff for their loving and compassionate care of Nelson and for the daily updates on his condition. Memorial contributions may be made to Wooster Church of the Nazarene and/or Go Forth Ministries.
