Nelson Loren Dahlgren, was born on March 7, 1972, in Nuremburg, Germany, to Loren and Sue (Pauli) Dahlgren. He attended school at Grant-Deuel in  Revillo, SD. He worked for Pepsi Bottling Company in Watertown, SD, and later for various friends in and around Watertown. He enjoyed spending time with all of his friends in Watertown and the surrounding area. He loved to cook, grill out and most of all, entertain people. You could always expect stories from Nelson about combines. He loved being in the field and working with area farmers. He brought a lot of laughter and entertainment to everyone he was around. Once Nelson met you, you were his friend. Years could pass by and he could still recall everything about the way you two met. He was sure to never forget your name.

Family was very important to Nelson. His great nieces and nephews were his biggest pride and joys!

He is survived by his sister, Lisa Joi, of Strandburg, SD; niece, Kristi Johnson and her children: Shelbi, Devin, Karter, Jagger and Carsen, of Revillo, SD; nephews: Dylan Johnson and Kody (Karissa) Johnson and their daughter Kailey; and his step-mother, Sharon Dahlgren, all of Strandburg, SD.

Nelson was preceded in death by his father, Loren Dahlgren; his mother, Sue Kasuske; and his maternal and paternal grandparents.
