Kellaway, Herbert (Herb) Govus

Herb passed away on Saturday, August 30, 2008 with dignity, strength and grace, maintaining his sense of humour right to the end. Herb was born to George Robert Kellaway and Gwendolyn (Govus) Kellaway in Red Deer, AB. He grew up in Edmonton and joined the RCAF in the later part of the 2nd World War where he served in England as a crew member of the 428 Ghost Squadron. In 1947 Herb married Kit and began his career with Lever Brothers Ltd, travelling much of Alberta as well as spending many years in Toronto and Winnipeg where he retired as Division Manager in 1984. Living in Winnipeg was a great advantage because a favourite sport of Herb’s was duck hunting. After Herb retired, he and Kit moved to Calgary to be close to and enjoy their family. Together they took a number of trips overseas to visit friends and family in England and Denmark.  Herb is survived by his sister Irene Sykes; daughter Linda (Duncan) McKitrick; sons, Rod (Sondra) and James Kellaway; grandchildren, Michael (Bonnie) McKitrick, Krista McKitrick, Shay (Steve) Meszaros, Dion (Shannon) Hawke; great-granddaughter Katelyn Meszaros. He was predeceased by his wife Kit; brothers, Jack and Laurie. At Herb’s request no service will be held.  Forward condolences through In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, c/o Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331 – 29 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 4N2 Telephone: (403) 521-3433. Herb’s children wish to acknowledge Peter Lougheed Unit 23, HomeCare and Southwood Hospice, all involved in Dad’s care. There were some very special people at all levels of the health care system whose care, competence and sensitivity helped Dad and us. There are too many to name personally, but they know who they are and we offer them our sincerest thanks. In living memory of Herb Kellaway, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.
