My deepest sympathy to the Nelson family. Stuart was my friend and mentor. We drove many a nail together building houses all over the area. Working for Stuart you never had a bad day at work.

My family & I would like to send our deepest condolences to the family of Stuart. I really didnt know him well & only met him when my brother, Dave Tuttle, was in Ellenville Hospital & Stuart came to visit him almost every day. Dave & him spent a lot of time together going to car shows, the Elks club for dinner & various restaurants in the area. He was a good friend to my brother. As many of you know, Dave passed away this past November & Stuart was with him when he collapsed. I like to think they are now enjoying each others company in heaven & taking up where they left off.
