Kel Brenden Bigelow

September 26, 1997 ~ November 28, 2018 (age 21)

Kel Brenden Bigelow

September 26, 1997 ~ November 28, 2018

Kel Brenden Bigelow was born on September 26, 1997 in Hendersonville, Tennessee to Marie McKee Brown and Chris Bigelow. Kel walked into the loving arms of his Heavenly Father on November 28, 2018 at the tender age of 21. Kel was preceded in death by his grandmothers, Loa Marlene McKee of Vernal, Utah and Diane Bigelow also of Vernal, Utah.

Kel is survived by his mother Marie McKee Brown of Orem, Utah, his father Chris and wife Sammie Bigelow of Vernal, Utah; his big brother Tace and wife Ashlie Bigelow of Ogden, Utah, his little sister Brexlie Bigelow and little bother Bruxtyn Bigelow of Vernal, Utah, his Grandpas and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Kel was tall and athletic with a handsome broad smile, He was intelligent and had fantastic wit, and the ability to engage and forge relationships with anyone. He always made sure everyone around him felt a part of the group and that they were OK.

Kel loved his big brother who he considered his best friend and partner in crime. Kel looked up to him like a father and they always had each others back.

Kel was an avid lover of being outdoors. He was always outside doing something. He enjoyed fishing, camping and riding his long board or bike for hours. He had a love for animals, especially lizards, snakes and turtles. He was talented with taking things apart and putting them back together, especially electronics. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do if he put his mind to it.

Kel will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him. He was the kind of young man that anyone would be proud to call son, grandson, brother, cousin and friend.

Now Kel, finally, is at rest and we hold him close within us.
