Obituary of Stewart Lee Kellum
Surrounded by family, Stewart Kellum, peacefully closed his eyes on earth and opened them in Heaven on August 19, 2021. He was a remarkable man…loved by all who knew him, never met a stranger, and left most with a hug.
Stewart was a long-time member at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Kernersville, NC. He was a proud member of the Knights of Columbus. Stewart was a member of the United States Air Force. He served as a security people dog handler guarding air planes in Germany. Stewart finished his career as a local truck driver. He loved playing and listening to music and writing poetry.
God welcomed him Home for a glorious reunion with his parents, Ralph and Doris and his brother Chris. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, two step-daughters, one step-son and their spouses, 7 grandchildren, one great grandchild, his sister and many nieces and nephews. Also, many extended family and friends who are saddened to say goodbye to a man who impacted them in so many ways.
