Kelly Reitenbach Fund
“Kelly’s legacy to all of us is made up of a great many wonderful things, far too numerous for us to try to count.”
Kelly Reitenbach was tragically killed in an avalanche at the age of 31 on March 19th, 2010 in Revelstoke BC while snowmobiling with family and friends. Kelly was a man that changed or effected in some way, the lives of many, many people. It was not by chance either. Kelly went out of his way to make a difference in people’s lives,... To make them better. Not that this was his original intention, but that was the end result.
Kelly was a cheerful, talented man that worked as an automation consultant in the oil and gas industry in Alaska, working two weeks in and two weeks out. Some of his passions were spending time with family and friends, serving as a linesman in the Western Hockey League, coach of the woman’s Fury hockey team, golfing, snowmobiling, travelling, rock climbing and more.
A wise man once said “What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” If that is truly the case, then Kelly’s legacy to all of us is made up of a great many wonderful things, far too numerous for us to try to count.
“On March 19th, 19 men rode up the mountain, 18 rode down and 1 flew out as an angel – Kelly will ride in our hearts forever.”
The Kelly Reitenbach Memorial Fund has been dedicated by the Reitenbach family to go towards the Langenburg Arena.
