KELEHER, Kenneth John – It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our father Kenneth John Keleher. Ken passed away peacefully in his home on September 21, 2022 in his 68th year.
He was known for his sense of humor, his helping hand to anyone that asked (or didn’t ask), his tremendous care and consideration for all animals and of course his love for his family and extended family. Ken could make friends everywhere he went and making people smile came naturally to him. He was often seen buying up all sorts of scratch tickets and sometimes left you in the car for what felt like an hour as he got caught up in the excitement.
Ken will be deeply missed by all of his four-legged friends. Loving father of Tanya (Adam) Legate, Ken (Cathy) Keleher and Bonnie (Lance) Keleher. Cherished grandfather of Austin, Evan, Caleb, Keegan, Tricia and Tyler. Predeceased by his father Harvey (2009) and mother Matilda (2005), brothers David (infancy), Fred (2021) and Doug (2019). Survived by his beloved siblings Ron (Bev) Keleher, Lorraine (Tom) Pinder and Chris (Denise) Keleher and brother-in-law to Candice Keleher. He will be forever remembered by his Aunts, Uncles, many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Cremation has taken place and a graveside service will be held by the family at a later date.
Friends will be received for a visitation at the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 206 Norfolk St, Guelph on Saturday Oct 15th from 2:00-4:00. A Celebration of Ken’s Life will follow in the upstairs hall at the Red Chevron Club, 34 Elizabeth St, Guelph from 4:00-7:00.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Guelph Humane Society.
A tree will be planted in memory of Kenneth J. Keleher in the Wall-Custance Memorial Forest.
