Kelly, Linus Vincent (Len) --
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Linus Vincent Kelly (Len), peacefully at home with daughters Lynn and Pat on Wednesday November 25, 2020, at the age of 87. Beloved husband of the late Bernadette (Bernie) Kelly. Loving
father of Lynn, Pat (Rick), and Mike (Natasha). Loving grandfather of Katie, Doug (Rachel), Amber and Sarah and Great Grandfather of Eberlee. He will be sadly missed by sister Nora. Predeceased by parents Arthur and Marcella Kelly (nee Nolan), sisters Mary, Phylis, Frances, Marion, Luella and Florence and brothers Daniel, Wilfred, Michael, Kenneth and Philip.
He will be remembered fondly by his extended family including Lorna, Beatrice, Marion, Sister-in-law Marlene (Vince), Brother-in-law Jim (Agnes), and many cousins nieces, nephews and friends.
Dad was a quiet man with a great sense of humour. He enjoyed his work as a Field Technician with Ontario Hydro for 39 years.
He also enjoyed his many trips to Ottawa, staying with his sister Marion, going for drives together and ultimately ending up at the farm in Manotick playing rousing games of euchre with his brother Mike and family and sisters Marion, Frances and
Phyllis. The fist thumping and laughter could be heard several farms away we’re sure.
Special thanks to his PSW Ashley and family friend Samantha whose dedication, compassion, care and kindness helped him transition from this life to the next.
