George R. Nelson, Funeral Director & Embalmer / Pre-Need Insurance Sales Rep.
Email: gnels@stonemor.com

George began his career in funeral service in 1984. He considers this important work to be his calling. George likens his job to that of a paramedic; coming alongside families at a time of great need, to help them through the first few critical days following the loss of a loved one. He is compassionate and understanding, and enjoys coming to work every morning. He and his wife live in Gig Harbor. In his non-work hours he delights in being “Pops” to his four grandchildren and spending time in his workshop and garden.
