Our brother, George Thomas Kellam known to many of his friends and co-workers as “Butch,” fell asleep and entered another realm of life on early Sunday morning, April 7, 2019 at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Maryland, at the age of sixty. He was the son of the late John Thomas Kellam and Ernestine Mae Boggs Kellam. He was also preceded in death by his grandson, Winston Kameron Miller; two sisters, Teresa Kellam and Frances West-Portier; three brothers, Herbert Kellam, Clifton Wise, and Thomas Lee Kellam; and three brothers-in-law, Thomas Jeffery Parker, William James Parker, and Preston “Buddy Pole” Kellam.

George was reared and educated in Accomack County. He entered the workforce at Holly Farms, now Tyson Foods, and dedicated twenty-five years of service. In later years, he gained employment with the Town of Onancock and worked there for thirteen years until his health began to fail in February 2016; he then retired. George was a dependable, loyal, and dedicated worker. He only missed 10 days of work throughout his entire career.

George was united in holy matrimony with Teresa Smith Kellam. He was blessed with a daughter, Timeria Kellam and a granddaughter, Rob’meria Wise, whom he shared with Jeanette Kellam.

George leaves to cherish and celebrate his life: his wife, Teresa Smith Kellam of Onancock, VA; daughter, Timeria Kellam and granddaughter, Rob’meria Wise, both of Snow Hill, MD; four sisters, Sheryl Kellam, Barbara Kellam, both of Parksley, VA, Doris Spicer of Salisbury, MD, and Patricia Kellam of Onancock, VA; one brother, Irving Wise of Ocean City, MD; two sisters-in-law, Charlene Smith of Parksley, VA and Valerie Smith of Onancock, VA; two brothers-in-law, William Spicer of Salisbury, MD and Carlton Smith of Onancock, VA; longtime friend, Jonell Harmon; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.

Butch will be greatly missed by family, friends, co-workers from the town of Onancock, and the drivers of Shore Medical Transport.
