July 1, 1976 – June 28, 2021
Rodney James Kelly was taken from us far too young in a tragic car accident. He leaves behind the love of his life Rita, children Ashley (Alex), Adam, Matthew and Jessica, sisters Roxanne (Anthony) and Dolores (Jason) as well as numerous loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and great niece and nephews. We are comforted knowing Rodney is reunited with his “mudder”, Diane Kelly.
He was born in Gander Newfoundland, making his way across Canada to Williams Lake BC as a teenager where he made a life for himself. In between raising 4 kids, Rodney worked first with the Williams Lake Tribune, then Blakes Moving Company, before spending the last 13 years at the Tolko Lakeview Division.
When he wasn’t working, Dad loved to be outdoors, on the water and with his family.
While he was always on our nerves,
he will be forever in our hearts.
The Celebration of Life will take place at the Gibraltar Room on Saturday, July 10 at 2:00 pm. Please respect Covid 19 Restrictions.
