MIAMI, FL (January 12, 2011) – Multi-platinum recording artist Gunnar Nelson, one of the twin sons of rock legend Rick Nelson, issued a statement this morning on behalf of the entire Rick Nelson family regarding the death of their uncle David Nelson, a TV pioneer best known for starring alongside his real life family – parents Ozzie and Harriet Nelson and younger brother Ricky Nelson on “The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet”.
“On behalf of the Rick Nelson family- Matthew, Tracy, Sam, and myself, I would like to extend our collective and heartfelt sympathies to our Uncle David’s wife Yvonne, Sons John, Danny, Eric, James, daughter Teri, and all the grandchildren. We will all miss Uncle Dave’s laughter and evolved sense of humor. I’m sure that Grandpa Ozzie, Grandma Harriet, and our Pop Rick were all waiting for him to welcome him Home when his time came. His passing is a great loss to the Nelson family as well as to the whole world- but I’m certain that his legacy will endure for generations to come. Our thanks go out to all of our fans, our father’s fans, and fans of the Ozzie and Harriet show through the years for the letters of care and sympathy that have been arriving. We’ll miss you, Uncle Dave.” - Gunnar Nelson
The Rick Nelson family is touched by the outpouring of sympathies expressed by friends and fans across the country, and greatly appreciates the respect as they grieve privately.
