Born in Moose Jaw on October 9th, 1959, Kel attended Eastleigh and Coderre Schools. Upon graduation, Kel started employment with Sask Wheat Pool (Viterra) and was a hard working, dedicated employee for 32 years until his passing. Kel was very passionate about sports, especially curling and fastball. When Kel was not active with his own sports, he would be coaching and supporting his children in all of their sports and activities. He was so proud of all of their accomplishments. His two grandchildren were his pride and joy. His Mikkydoo (Booboo) and Little Man, held a very special place in his heart. Kel had a soft spot for all animals and will be greatly missed by his special companions. His free time was spent keeping his yard perfectly groomed. Kel was a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather. He was a pillar of strength and touched all our lives. He will never be forgotten and will be forever loved. For those so wishing, donations in memory of Kel may be made to Moose Jaw Midget AAA Cardinals, 937 4th Ave. S.W., Moose Jaw, Sask. S6H 5V9.
