WILLIAM (BILL) GERALD KELLOWAY
1955 - 2021
It is with heavy hearts that the family of William (Bill) Gerald Kelloway announce his sudden passing on January 28,2021 at Central Newfoundland Regional Health Care Centre with his family by his side.
His memory will be cherished by his two children, Sheridan ( Grand Falls-Windsor) Erica ( Grand Falls- Windsor) ; grandson Timothy (Grand Falls-Windsor); special friends Charles Anderson, (Grand Falls-Windsor) Jolene Kelloway (St. John’s) father Stanley Kelloway (Corner Brook) sister June Kelloway-Tarrant ( Mario, Dryden, Ontario) brother Raymond (Mary Beth, Torbay) brother Darrell (Marilyn, Calgary, Alberta) sister Bonnie Randell ( Dave, Corner Brook); a large number of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his mother Margaret May 14,2020
Bill was the first born to Margaret and Stanley Kelloway on July 22, 1955 in Corner Brook. He attended school in Corner Brook and subsequently Memorial University in St. Johns. Following school he embarked on his own business with a book store in Corner Brook, and then later devoted his career and attention to supporting and caring for others.
His two children and later his grandchild were the focus of his life, being a devoted and loving father and grandfather. He took great pride in his family and enjoyed his time with family and friends. Bill loved getting together with his dad and aunts and uncles to listen and share stories and adventures. He gave wholeheartedly to his family and his work life. Bill was a devoted care giver, ensuring individual needs were met and rights were safeguarded, retiring in 2019.
He enjoyed being in the kitchen and preparing fabulous meals for his family and friends. Bill could also whip up amazing feasts over a campfire or camp stove while on fishing, camping trips with his children, brothers and uncles.
Bill had a great love of literature and his interests were far reaching from the classics to lesser known treasures that he discovered. A conversation of his favourite readings would always result in a list of recommendations or a gift of a new book. He was incredibly knowledgeable about a wide range of topics and was a trivia champion. Bill was “ larger than life”!
He was a huge rock and roll fan, a supporter of the Miami Dolphins and loved “a good cup of tea”. At a minutes notice, he would be ready to go gallivanting.
Bill will be greatly missed.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date as determined by his family. Cremation has taken place. Donations may be made in his memory to the Lionel Kelland Hospice.
Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Ryan Peddle of Central Funeral Homes.
