Poinciana, Florida – In a heart-wrenching turn of events, the family and friends of Nelson Webber are mourning the untimely loss of a beloved soul. Just days after celebrating his 24th birthday on May 12th, Nelson’s life was tragically cut short on the evening of May 19th, 2024, at approximately 7:36 PM, in a senseless hit-and-run incident at the intersection of Koa Street and Monterey Road in Poinciana.

Nelson was a beacon of joy, known for his infectious laughter and unwavering optimism. He brought light to every gathering and was deeply committed to bettering himself and the world around him. His sudden passing has left a void too profound to bear, and his absence is felt deeply by all who knew him.

The incident, which occurred due to the absence of traffic lights, saw a reckless driver disregard the sanctity of life and flee the scene, leaving Nelson’s loved ones to grapple with the harsh reality of his loss. Nelson's dreams and aspirations were many; he envisioned a future filled with love, laughter, and the joy of fatherhood, eagerly awaiting the birth of his daughter.

Nelson was cherished as a first love, a guiding brother, a doting father, and a loyal friend. His passing leaves behind a fiancée, Gabriela Arroyo, who now turns to the community for support in these dark times. Nelson's earthly vessel currently rests at the Medical Examiner's Office, and the family yearns to bring him home for a dignified farewell.

In a heartfelt message, Gabriela shared her grief and the family's need for assistance: “In this moment of need, we turn to you, our extended family, for support. Your contributions, no matter the size, will help us provide Nelson with a dignified departure. Each donation is more than a gift; it is a testament to the love and life that Nelson shared with us all.”

The family is reaching out for donations to cover the funeral expenses and to ensure Nelson is laid to rest with the honor he deserves. Contributions can be made through a dedicated fundraising platform (link to be provided by the family).

As the community comes together to support Nelson's family, Gabriela expresses her gratitude: “Please hold Nelson's family in your hearts and prayers. May your kindness be a beacon of hope in these dark times. With gratitude and love, Gabriela Arroyo.”

The loss of Nelson Webber is a stark reminder of the fragility of life and the importance of cherishing every moment with our loved ones. The family appreciates any support during this incredibly difficult time. God bless you all.
