Frederick Kelsey "Ted" Obituary

Frederick “Ted” Lee Kelsey
Ontario: Passed on March 26, 2024, with his children at his side, at the age of 82. Fred was
predeceased by his son Richard “Chip” Lee Kelsey and parents George and Doris
"Leiter" Kelsey.

Ted is survived by his sons Corky (Wendy Warren) and Robert (Melinda Plakus); two
grandchildren Clint and Brooke; brother David (Dorothy); nephews Brian, Paul, David
Michael, and his three legged feline companion Simba.

Ted, in addition to being an excellent soccer player, was an avid soccer fan. He spent
countless nights watching boys and girls games at Wayne Central, coached sandlot
soccer for Ontario Recreation, and was recruited by Rochester’s professional team, the
Lancers, back in the day. He enjoyed camping in the Adirondacks, especially at
Raquette Lake. Riding his Gold Wing motorcycle, and most recently CanAm Spyder, was
one of his favorite past times. He opened his home multiple times, once to a foreign
exchange student and multiple family friends that were in need. He was always there to
lend a helping hand and a great problem solver.

Ted was an Air Force veteran. He spent most of his service based in Okinawa as a
camera repairman.
