“Known by the Customers we Keep”

Since 1965

It is with the deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of our Founding President, Robert (Bob) Nelson at the age of 92. Bob, with his brothers (George, David, Richard) and partner Horton (Al) Bane, formed Bane-Nelson, Inc. in 1965 to service the industrial community of Kenosha and SE Wisconsin. Bob spent his life in service to others, as a National Guardsman in WWII, an active member in his Church, with the Boy Scouts, ESGR, Rotary and countless other memberships and organizations that were close to his heart and continue to be close to his family’s hearts. He is survived by his loving wife Rose and children Larry (Kathy) and Judy (Al), his adoring grandchildren and great-grandchildren, nephews and nieces, his dear friend William (Willy), and his beloved work family at Bane-Nelson, Inc. Please join us with prayers for the family in this time of loss, and in joy of Bob’s transition to his eternal life.

– And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” – Luke 23:43
