Steve Nelson

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.

  1. Thank you for posting this wonderful photo of Steve. I think I remember that show (in a mall near 82nd & Powell) and how delighted Steve was to show me all the odd and weird and bizarre plants. He was a dear man and shall be missed. More at http://stevenelsonpdx.blogspot.com
