Cecil Kelly

December 26, 1936 — February 25, 2022


Kelly, Cecil (Bob) Robert Duncan

1936 – 2022

Peacefully at home, surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with cancer. Bob had an insatiable appetite for learning, life's adventures and fighting for others: the Cabecar people of Costa Rica, women and children in Afghanistan, Tutsi refugees in Goma, an indigenous woman betrayed by the justice system here in Canada are just a few of those for whom Bob worked. Sincere thanks to Drs Kathleen McGregor, Paul Wheatley-Price, Jill Rice, Sara Moore, Nicholas Costain and their colleagues at the Ottawa Hospital and Champlain LHIN for their exceptional skill and care. Predeceased by his wife Shirley and siblings, Shirley and Sheldon, he leaves to mourn, his partner, Liz, his sisters Glenda (Glen Cook) and Lois (the late Clem Baschenis), his daughter, Lisa (Andrew Inderwick), son, Philip (Rosalby Guerrero Mesia), grandchildren Caitlin (Russ Jones) and Meghan Inderwick, and Olivia and Mateo Kelly, great-grandsons and beloved nieces and their children.   A private service will be held at a later date.
