A Celebration of Life for Matthew Louis Nelson, age 56, of Enid, will be 2:00 pm, Thursday, November 12, 2020 at Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home with Rev. Tom LeGrand officiating. The family will receive friends from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Wednesday, November 11th at the funeral home. Cremation and service arrangements are under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home.

Matt was born in Woodward, Oklahoma on June 4, 1964, to Siegel and Myrtle (Oliver) Nelson, and passed away Thursday, November 5, 2020 in Enid.

Matthew graduated from Buffalo High School in Buffalo, Oklahoma. He then attended college at Phillips University where he participated in the Activities Council and the Gridlock Club.

He worked for Meadowlake Hospital, NW Behavioral Health, Long-Term Care Authority of Enid, and his last position was with Grand Lake Mental Health in Stillwater, Oklahoma. He married the love of his life, Sherri Craig Morrow, and they enjoyed a quiet life together, spending time with their grandchildren and their beloved dogs. Matt and Sherri were one week shy of celebrating their 6th wedding anniversary when she passed away suddenly on July 21, 2020.

Matt was preceded in death by his wife Sherri Nelson; parents, Siegal and Myrtle Nelson; and grandmother Lucille Champ. He is survived by two sisters, Brenda Hoffman and husband Terry, of Garber, OK; Shree Perez and husband Jose, of Nolanville, TX; Donnie Holloway, of Enid; nieces Amber Borders and family; Jessica Perez and family, of Texas; Tylie Jared and family, of Prague, OK; and nephew, Bryant Hoffman, of Garber; as well as a host of other aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

A great man with a heart of gold. We need men like him today. My family lifts up the Nelson family in prayer.

Matt was one of the few really great people in the world. He was a good and loyal son, brother and husband. Matt was a true and trusted friend. For those of us who were fortunate enough to call Matt our friend, (which is many) he leaves behind fond memories and lessons on how to be kind to each other. He had a gift for being able to quickly sum up a person or situation. I will always remember his humor and quick wit. Matt had a big heart, a big shoulder to cry on and an "Old Soul" to share with those he loved.
I know Matt is in a better place. Selfishly, I am sad and will miss my friend.
