We just learned on Sunday that Steve Nelson, long-time member of the Oregon Cactus and Succulent Society and a very well informed succulentophile, died this past week. He will be missed by a lot of cactus and succulent enthusiasts. A memorial is being held at the People's Food Co-op in SE Portland this Saturday, from 1-3 p.m. Follow the title link for more information.
This picture is of him as the show chair of the OCSS Show & Sale in 1987.
