Respects given for man who gave much

The funeral procession for Douglas “Duggy” Nelson, a longtime officer and firefighter, leaves the Chetek United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 20. The procession, escorted by an assortment of emergency vehicles, carried Nelson’s casket on the Chetek Fire Department’s restored 1940 fire engine, above. Pictured driving is Fire Chief Al Zeltner with former Fire Chief Joe Atwood in the passenger seat.
