Friends and family are gathering in Delta, Utah April 22 to hold a memorial service for Sgt. Brett William Nielson.

Nielson passed away at the age of fifty following a tragic motorcycle accident near Kanarraville one year ago. He had served in the US Marine Corps during the Gulf War. In 1992 he joined the Millard County Sheriff’s Office. Neilson was known for his love of motorcycles, bartering, shooting, and spending time with his family.

The memorial service will take place at noon at the Millard County Fair Building. Military Rites will take place at the Delta cemetery. A luncheon following the burial will be provided by the Delta 1st Ward. They ask that you contact Angie Nielson at (435) 979-4587 if you plan to attend the luncheon.
