Obituary of Larry Alan Nelson
Larry Alan Nelson of San Antonio, Texas passed away on January 25, 2023 at the age of 74. He was born on October 28, 1948 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He worked for Continental Airlines for 40 years, starting on the ramp in Colorado Springs, ending as managing director of catering services in Houston, with multiple stops along the way. One such stop, which was a great ice-breaker, included three years in the Fiji Islands. His career in the airline industry took him all around the world where he formed lasting friendships, and provided rare and special experiences for him and his family. He loved his family, the friends he made along the way, playing golf, cheering for the Denver Broncos, and especially rooting for and supporting his sons’ and grandchildren’s activities. Larry is preceded in death by his parents Arthur and Vera, sisters Joanne and Barbara, and brother Jack. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Caroline; sons, Aron and Todd; and grandchildren, Madison and Noah. Larry was a Vietnam veteran, and although he rarely spoke about his time in service he found a deep sense of honor later in life. The family would like to thank Four Seasons Hospice and Season’s Alzheimer’s Care for the care and compassion they showed our loved one in their final days. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in their honor to the Alzheimer’s Association (
