Kellen Madsen Hammond
Kellen Madsen Hammond passed away suddenly in Southern California on September 20, 2017.
He had recently moved from Vancouver to Oceanside, CA where he was working for a painting company and looking to the future.
Kellen grew up in Nelson and lived a varied life across BC and will be missed by many for his passionate opinions and love of a good debate, hard-working nature and never-ending optimism that he could make a better life.
Kellen was a beloved son, brother, uncle and friend and is survived by his parents Jay and Kristie Hammond of Lindell Beach, BC, his four siblings (Karsten, Rebekah, David and Alexandra), two nieces, nephew, numerous aunts and uncles, grandmother Thelma Madsen and former spouse Anita Kingcott.
No formal service is planned but there will be a celebration of life in 2018.
