Nelson Allison Meneley passed away on Sunday, April 19 2020. He is survived by his wife, Joan Meneley, his daughters Barbara Meneley and Janet Rozanski and grandchildren Rachel and Sarah Rozanski.
Nelson was born October 7, 1931 in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. The first in his family to attend university, he worked summers to pay for his education at the University of Saskatchewan. After graduating with a degree in Engineering, Nelson supported three of his brothers in their education.
Nelson began working with Westcon Construction, helping to build and develop the company throughout his professional life. In that time, Nelson worked to grow the company and was at the forefront of developing concrete products, extending into markets across Canada and the US.
Throughout his life, Nelson enjoyed playing many sports, most especially curling and golf.
Nelson’s giving nature lives through his contributions and lifelong service to multiple clubs and community organizations. He was an active member in his communities and involved in many ways; as a hockey coach, golf league organizer and delivering meals to seniors.
Nelson will be remembered for his sense of humour, his generosity and his love.
You are invited to leave a personal message for the family.

Joan, My deepest sympathies and love to you and your family. Nels was a unique and special person in my life and will be sorely missed. It must be especially hard in these weird times. Hopefully things will be as fine as frogs fur soon.~ Stephen Given
I had the pleasure of going to work for Nelson in January 1981 at the new Westcon plant in Olympia.
Nels gave me lots of rope and under his leadership I came to enjoy the Paver business now for the past 39 years.
I loved his dry humor and off the wall sayings at times.
At lunch we always laughed as we’d enjoy the same sandwich a “Ruben”.
Nels although our time together was short thank you a million times for the fun we had and your solid daily advice.
Rest in peace my friend, Nigel
