Born May 14, 1954 in Kamloops, BC. Kelly passed away suddenly due to complications from cancer despite the valiant efforts of doctors and nurses at Victoria General Hospital on Sunday, November 25, 2018 in Victoria, BC.

Kelly is predeceased by his parents, Peter and Myrtle; his brother, Gerald and his nephew, John Alexander Heron.

He is survived by his brothers, Robert (Jenny) and John (Magdalin); nieces, Lisa (Dave Hyndman), Sandra (Chris) Edwards, Samantha Heron, Vanessa Heron; nephew, Peter Heron; grandnieces, Claire Hyndman, Katherine and Sarah Edwards; grandnephew, Hugh Hyndman, and sister-in-law, Maria Heron.

Kelly was always an independent person and extremely well-read. His hobbies included space technology, astronomy, photography, piano, model making and family ancestral history. He is a descendant of the McFarlane, Cliffe, McKenzie and Hawkins pioneer families of the Comox Valley. He enjoyed the ocean as a keen fisherman and was looking forward to cycling as a new hobby in his retirement.

Although no family or partner of his own, Kelly’s joy came from his nephews, nieces, grandnephew and grandnieces. He was their quirky and likeable uncle and they adored him for it.

Kelly enjoyed a full career at Telus Corp (ie: major shareholder). He was liked by many co-workers whom he appreciated frequent reunions with in his retirement.

At Kelly’s request, no Service or Celebration of Life is planned. He asked that in lieu of flowers donations be made in his name to the BC Cancer Agency.

    I found Kelly to always be a kind and gentle man. It was my pleasure to work with him in network operations during the 90ies. My condolences to the Heron family.
