Obituary of Scott Allen Nelson

Scott Allen “Bubba” Nelson, 37, of Cambridge passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 13, 2021.

Bubba was born on September 2, 1984 to Scott Nelson and Tina (Pickett) Koah in Canton, Ohio. At a young age, Bubba’s family moved to Cambridge, Wisconsin where he later graduated early from high school in 2002.  While in high school, Bubba excelled in Wrestling, Cross-Country and won several medals for his victories.  After high school, Bubba entered into the workforce as a long distance mover and moved back to Ohio.   He eventually moved back to Cambridge to be closer to family.

Bubba was caring, charismatic, extremely humorous, and could make friends with anybody.  His enjoyments included shooting guns, fishing, loved cooking, Frisbee-golf with family, family gatherings, and especially spending time with his nieces and nephews. Bubba was an avid Packers and Badgers fan and would often have Packer Parties with family and friends. 

He is survived by his parents, Tina Koah and Scott (Heidi) Nelson; sisters, Tamrah (JD) Kincaid, Tasha (Collin) Blagus; grandmother, Irene Sanford; aunts, Leona and Kimberly (Tracey) and many more aunts and uncles; cousins, Tiffany (Dustin) Marshall, Mancel Linkous, Kristina Linkous and many more cousins; nieces and nephews, Caden, Aiden, Kaleb, Cayleigh, Carmen, Corbin, Cooper, Carlee; and four-legged child, Hayrek the Dog.

Bubba is preceded in death by grandfathers, Jesse Pickett, Lawrence Sanford, Harold Nelson; grandmothers, Delores Nelson; aunt, Debbie Friend; uncle, Jeff Nelson; and four-legged children, Keryah the Dog and Danger the Cat.
