KELLGREN, Viego Leroy
September 17, 1944 – February 28, 2014
With great sadness the family of Viego Kellgren announces his passing after a
courageous battle with cancer. His memory will be cherished by his wife Maida,
daughter Kristjana (Erik Bruveris), grand daughter Amelia, mother Ivy, brothers
Dwight (Rita), Arnold (Margaret), sister Thyra (Russ) Dodd, many nieces, nephews and dear friends. He was predeceased by his father Albert. Viego was born in Lacombe and raised on
the farm in Alder Flats until he left to join the RCAF at the age of 18. After leaving
the RCAF he began working in the oil industry where he was to spend the rest of his career.
Although he had many interests, his great loves were his family and golf. Viego was
a member of several golf leagues and the Beaumont Lions Club.
The family wishes to express heartfelt thanks to the staff at St Joseph’s
Palliative Care Unit, the nursing staff from Alberta Health Home Care and Rev.
Ainsworth who all cared for him with such compassion.
A Memorial Service will be held at St. John The Evangelist Anglican Church
11111 – 57 Avenue, Edmonton at 2:00 PM Saturday March 8th, 2014.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Viego’s memory may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation
