Norfolk—Yale Nesson passed away on January 11, 2022 at the age of 93.

He was the best person in the world and is now in heaven with his daughter, Melissa.

Left to cherish his memory is the love of his life, Sandra Nesson, who he met at 15 and married at 18. They were married for 69 happy years. He is remembered by his wonderful daughter, Denise and her husband, Bobby Goldwasser; Grandchildren, Jayme (husband, Jason), Lindsey (husband, Chris), Jenna Lipkin, and Barrett Lipkin. Also, great grandchildren, Madyson, Taylor and Cooper; and his devoted brother-in-law, Fred Sukoff; and many nieces and nephews.

Yale was an honest hard-working man. His business, Nesson Meats, will always be his legacy. He grew up in a time where a handshake was sincere and no contracts ever needed. Being around family, the people he loved, smoking cigars, and telling jokes were his favorite times. He retired at 62 to enjoy playing golf, tennis, and pool, as well.

A graveside funeral service was conducted in Forest Lawn Cemetery with Rabbi Michael Panitz officiating. Memorial contributions may be made to Temple Israel, CHKD, or The March of Dimes. H. D. Oliver Funeral Apts. Online condolences may be sent to the family through www.hdoliver.com.
