  • Stephen (Steve) Semchyshen says:

    I graduated with Kelly and Kevin and I will never forget the talk Kelly and I had after Kevin had passed. Being a twin with my brother Richard, Kelly gave me a deep understanding of how to share my life and also be an individual with respect to being twins. “Never worry about him but be sure you’re always together to enjoy life “. My sympathies to all of Kelly’s family, I am saddened by our loss of a good man.

  • Tanya Murphy (Latta) says:

    Much love to all Kelly’s family and friends! Sincere condolences!

  • Cindy (Schroh) Kroeger says:

    I can’t imagine the heartache Kelly’s family is going through right now. I’m so terribly sorry for your loss. I went to high school at E.D. Feehan with the boys. They were all awesome – fun, caring, intelligent, and kind – you raised good people Kathy. To distinctly remember Kelly after 30+ years says a lot about his personality. He had a positive impact on many, many people during those years and I’m certain this tragic news will hit home again. Sending healing thoughts and prayers to your beautiful family.

    Our Sincerest Condolences

  • Kimberly Cornell says:

    I didn’t get a chance to know Kelly very well. But he left a big impression. To know him was to love him. You always knew when Kelly was around.. one of those big personalities that you just couldn’t help but notice. It was an energy and a vibe that you just enjoyed being around. Kelly didn’t blend in with the background!! He was always up to talk, offer advice and encouragement, and always made sure you knew you were appreciated and valued. He left a huge hole when he left..
    When we heard the news, I couldn’t help but think about this picture. Just before Christmas he organized a volunteer day collecting donations for charity, and he showed up for the very last shift late in the evening. He was exhausted and still smiling anyway. He passed his hour in style, charming shoppers, singing, dancing. I remember being able to hear his laugh from several aisles away. I just remember from half a store away he spotted me and did this big huge full arm wave that just.. it made me laugh! This memory played over and over in my mind, the last really great memory I have of a great man.

    You’ll be sorely missed Kelly.

  • Anna Di Santo-Johnston says:

    Dear Cindy and family,
    High School may have been a long time ago ( 1987) but certain people are never forgotten. Words of comfort are hard to find but knowing how Kelly made such a positive impression of my high school days may help feel the warm thoughts of love he left. He will always remain a sweet memory close to our hearts. Trojan family strong forever. ❤
    My sincerest sympathies,
    Anna (married to Tony Johnston)

    I worked with Kelly when he was at Saskatoon Motor Products. A big fan of his work ethic and attention to detail.
    When I came to learn that he has passed away, I could not believe it.
    He was a fine professional and always the one who will brighten up the room.
    Bless you and May Almighty Grant Patience To Kelly’s family.
