October 28, 1978 - January 19, 2024

It is with profound sadness that we, the family of Kelsey Louis Proulx, announce his passing on January 19, at the age of 45, when he went home to be with his Lord and Saviour.

He leaves to mourn his parents Fern and Geneva Proulx; his older brother Daylen and his younger sister Desirée (Darcy Paterson). He was a beloved son,  sibling, uncle to Marigold, Fredrik and Dorothy and most loved friend to many. He touched the lives of many with his kindness, warmth, humour and gentle spirit.

Born and raised in St. Albert, Kelsey embraced life with his unique charm and enthusiasm.

He went through the french immersion program - Leo Nickerson Elementary, Sir George Simpson Jr. High and then Paul Kane Highschool where he made many life long friends.

When he completed his highschool, he went to the University of Alberta where he graduated with a business degree, with a double major in finance and  accounting. After graduation, he moved to Calgary and lived there until his death. He had many friends and co-workers from his employment with CIBC, Sobeys, Gibson Energy and his most recent and most loved employment as senior accountant at Strad Inc.

Throughout his life, Kelsey found joy in his passions - golfing, hiking, running, travelling with friends, golf trips with his buddies and was an avid sports fan as well as a love for movies. As a child, summer holidays were usually spent with cousins in B.C. or family reunions with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins in the  Peace River Country.

He cherished his role as uncle to Goldie and Freddy and more recently baby Dorothy and created many beloved memories, especially on our last family trip in December to Mexico.

Kelsey was a very warm, patient, generous and loving person but yet very private. He was articulate in his speech and meticulous in all things. He was always a good listener and one to go to for advice on almost any topic.

He leaves behind a legacy of fun family memories and stories. His comedic outlook and sense of humour will be greatly missed.

A time to remember Kelsey will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Kelsey’s name may be made to the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation.
