There were funeral services held for Bill Nelson in Tucson, Az. on Fri. September 29, 2017.  The services were up on Craycroft Rd in the same church where Dyann and I were Wed.

 

Bill did lots for our sport. Here are just a few that I dug up:

 

* A 3 X NCAA champion for Northern Iowa University

* He was a member of the 1948 Olympic Team

* Bill coached at the U of Arizona-where he led the Wildcats to seven 

  top-20 finishes at the NCAA finals. 

* Inducted into the U of Arizona Sports Hall of Fame

* Bill brought the NCAA Championships to Tucson in 1976

 

 

A fond farewell to Bill Nelson - a champion for all
