Demar Auston Nelson

Demar A. "Dee" Nelson, 52, of Greenville, Indiana, was born to his parents Janet A. Nelson and David Pitts on December 1, 1971. Dee was born and raised in Detroit, MI and attended Detroit Public Schools. He traveled and lived in several cities before settling down in Ohio for several years. Dee then met his first wife and moved to Indiana. After his divorce, Dee met Alexis in September of 2008 as co-workers at Frisch's. On December 21, 2008 they became a couple and from that day forward could always be seen together. Dee and Alexis married in January 2017. Out of this union, a daughter, Tristen, was born. The duo became a trio and could be seen everywhere together as a tight family unit. Dee was an avid sports fan, especially Michigan teams. He had a special connection with kids and animals and was loved by everyone that met him. On February 9, 2024, Dee met an untimely death in an auto accident.
