Remembering Bill Nelson

Recommended Posts

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
