Theo "Ted" Nelson

June 20, 1957 — October 15, 2021

Theo “Ted” A. Nelson, 64, of Cheyenne, Wyoming passed away October 15, 2021 at Davis Hospice Center.

He was born June 20, 1957 in Cheyenne to Arthur and Shirley Nelson. He was a landman in the oil and gas industry and attended St. Mary’s Cathedral.

Ted made friends everywhere he went, sharing laughs, compassion and kindness with people every day. He was an amazing father and a knowledgeable, patient mentor. Always on the move, Ted cherished finding adventure in his many life’s journeys. He was described by many as a person who was great at everything he set his mind to, from general contracting, cutting hair, and coaching little league baseball. His contagious smile and quick wit will be permanently etched in the hearts of all those lucky enough to take part in Ted’s story.

He is survived by his children, Calvin (Ashley) Nelson, Logan Nelson and Sydney Nelson, all of Littleton, CO; grandchildren, Isabelle and Lilah Nelson; siblings, Debbie (John) Baker, Terri (Dave) McCormack, Pam (Peter) Basile, Cyndi Nelson, Kody (Joe) Lobert and Dennis Nelson; and numerous nieces and nephews including Mandi.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Shirley Nelson.

A Vigil for the Deceased with the recitation of the rosary will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 7, 2021, at St. Mary’s Cathedral. A Funeral Liturgy will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, November 8th at St. Mary’s Cathedral.
