1960 – 2018
Christian Nelle was born on April 4, 1960. He is survived by his spouse of 38 years, Rebecca Nelle.
Chris spent most of his life in Turlock working as an electrician. He greatly enjoyed the outdoors and hunting. He loved life, fishing, camping, gardening, and spending time with his family. Chris’s greatest joy in life was time spent with loved ones.
Chris met Becky while at church in 1979. He spent the rest of his life serving the Lord faithfully.
In addition to his wife Becky, he leaves behind two surviving sons: Steven (Kelly) Nelle and Patrick (Julie) Nelle, both of Turlock, and 5 grandchildren. Chris and Becky had one son who preceded them in death, Ryan Nelle, who passed away as an infant in 1982. Chris is also survived by his mother & stepfather, Verdeena and Jim Harris, his father Don Nelle and brother, Darin Nelle.
Christian was a humble man, a quiet man, but had a huge presence. He is greatly missed by all who had the honor of knowing him.
