Lenn Lee Nelson was never short on opinions and those who knew him said he worked hard to better Vine Grove and Hardin County as a whole during his life.
Nelson, a longtime dairy farmer and Hardin County magistrate, died Friday morning. He was 82.
Nelson’s son, Byron, said his father had been in declining health the past year and never could recover after he suffered a fall.
But Nelson’s health problems could not fatigue his energy and zest, Byron Nelson added.
