Dr. John Grellan O'Kelly



Dr. John Grellan O'Kelly, born December 7, 1948, died with his loving family by his side on June 13, 2014.

Beloved husband, best friend and "smiling face" to Sheila Patricia O'Kelly (nee McEvaddy) for 28 days shy of 40 years. The archetypal father to Cian (Melanie), Ronagh (James), Deirdre (Scott) and Orlagh (Patrick) and surrogate father to many. Gaga/Grandpa Johnny to Emmeline, Josephine, Owen, Callum, Laoise, Benjamin, Peadar and Maeve, and loving friend and family member to so many in Canada, Ireland and across the globe.

Words are inadequate to express the deep sorrow at our loss. John will be remembered for his commitment to the betterment of society through his children, his civic engagement, his passion for sport, his ability to inspire, his uncanny way of making people laugh and his countless hours of helping his patients.

A Wake will be held at the house on Monday, June 16, 2014 from 4 - 7 p.m. and the Funeral will be held at St. Albert Catholic Parish at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday June, 17, 2014.

In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to Pancreatic Cancer Research, c/o the Alberta Cancer Foundation, 710-10123 99 Street, Edmonton, AB T5J 3H1, (780) 643-4400 albertacancer.ca/ memorial

In Loving Memory of
Dr. John Grellan O'Kelly
