Kelsey Rees McGee Memorial Fund

On March 26, 2019, Kelsey Rees McGee passed away from an apparent accidental fall while taking a shower. He was only 32 years old and left behind his pride and joy, a beautiful 10 year old daughter Roxianna with whom he spent the bulk of his free time with. 

Kelsey graduated from Hilltop Baptist High School of Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2005. His heart's desire was to join the Navy to serve his country but after meeting all administrative qualifications was not accepted due to an elbow abnormality which was very disappointing to him.  He became a driver operator for Bestway Disposal and soon became the lead operator responsible for training new employees.  And after 12 years of being an exemplary employee he had to move on to a bigger and better career to support his daughter. He was accepted onto the City of Colorado Springs Wastewater Collection Department and was rapidly climbing the ladder. Kelsey received employee of the month in his second month of working there. 

Kelsey embodied what it meant to live and love. After a stint with U-Turn for Christ as a participant and mentor-counselor he gave unconditionally and brought a level of joy, kindness and honesty to all he came in contact with. Kelsey enjoyed the outdoors, loved family gatherings. His mom was his hero and he was especially fond of going fishing with his dad and was especially close to his younger sister Morgan.38094806_1553877022363123_r.jpeg

Kelsey was the nephew of Michael Rees who is a partner with Five Star Aviation LLC and did several construction/handyman jobs, in addition to his full time job, for the company and will be greatly missed by all.

Please help the family with the funds to take care of final expenses and help support his beautiful daughter who has a long road ahead of her without her hero.

Five Star Aviation LLC will be in charge of funds to help take the load off of his parents in this great time of need. 38094806_1553873116554905_r.jpeg38094806_1553873323208223_r.jpeg
