December 18, 2020 - Nelson Chin

Words cannot express the sorrow we feel at the void left by the passing of Nelson Chin. Nelson was BYS President for eight years, Treasurer for four years prior to that, Vice President, Director, Coach for years before that. Even after he "retired" as BYS President, Nelson was always there to provide counsel and advice to his successors. And he continued to be a strong advocate for the children of Braintree in his position as Parks and Recreation Director for the Town of Braintree. There is no person who gave more of himself to BYS and the entire Braintree community than Nelson Chin, as such it is impossible to describe the impact Nelson had on BYS throughout the years. We send along our blessings to Nelson's wife Sue and their children Adam, Amanda, and Andrew. Thank you for sharing Nelson with our community. We are all better for having known him and his legacy will live on forever in Braintree.
