Ronald Jay Nielson, known to friends and family as “Soupy,” passed away on January 20, 2020, at the age of 64. Soupy graduated from Sanford High School and later trained in diesel mechanic and tractor service technician operating his own service truck. He later spent many years as a over the road truck driver. A native of Sanford, Colorado, he was known for his whole-hog barbeque and custom-made knife business. Soupy was always willing to help a friend or spend time visiting and telling stories. Those who knew him will miss his annual fruit run bringing back the best apples, peaches, pears, and tomatoes to those in the southern San Luis Valley.

Per Soupy’s request, there will not be a funeral or services at this time. There will a barbeque on July 18, 2020, at Betty and Jesse Rogers’ shop in Sanford, Colorado, so friends and family can gather, eat, and share memories and stories as Soupy did. There will be more information to follow closer to the event.
