James A Nelson
Aug 24, 1952 to Jan 09, 2018


On Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at The Loretto Nursing Home, Syracuse, NY, our merciful Father saw that his son, James Arthur “Rambo” Nelson, was tired and he dispatched his angels to bring him home. Born August 24, 1952, in Sumter, he was the son of James and Lillie Nelson. In 1957, the family relocated to Brooklyn, NY where James completed his education in the New York City School System. He gained employment with the New York City Housing Authority where he worked for many years until he relocated to Syracuse after failing health. As a boy, James’ parents brought him and his siblings to First Baptist Church of Brownsville, where he was baptized in the early 1960’s. He leaves to cherish his memory: his parents, James and Lillie Nelson; sister, Arleen N. Clark (Edward); eight children; ten grandchildren; three aunts, Castelia Wilson, Lucille Rogers and Wilhelmina Sanders; one niece, Melissa; one nephew, Brian (Ashley); a host of cousins, family members and friends. Funeral services will be held Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 1 p. m. from the John Wesley Williams Sr. Memorial Chapel, Williams Funeral Home, Inc., 821 North Main Street, Sumter. Internment will be in the Mt. Moriah Memorial Gardens, 1379 Swimming Pen Road, Mayesville.
