Kelly W. Phend, 64, went peacefully to the Lord on April 30, 2017 after a 9 year battle with cancer that he fought courageously. He was surrounded by family, friends and loved ones. He was born on October 1, 1952 in Monticello, Iowa; son of Carla Christensen and Everett (Bud) Phend.

Kelly is survived by the love of his life, Sandy Phend, His children: Kandy Lange, Kylle (Nicole) Phend, Jody (Don) Teepee, Billy (Leah) Strickler, Joey (Lisa) Strickler, Angie (Jim) Seichter and Daniel Palmer.

Kelly was preceded in death by his parents, Sister Priscila Toliver, sister Vickie Martzahn and brother Marvin Daulfeldt.

Kelly enjoyed watching the Packers, Cheeseheads, football season, Packers garb and Brett Farve. He loved driving semi, spending time with family and friends, and oh, did we mention his love for the Green Bay Packers? Kelly had a wonderful personality that made everyone smile and laugh. Kelly served in the Army Reserve, a member of 4-H, member of FFA and a member of Orlando Baptist Church. Kelly was employed for ten years at Walmart as a Truck Driver. This wasn’t just an employer but an extenstion to his family. The people he worked with were very special to him and supportive throughout his battle with cancer. Special thanks to Dr. Juan Suarez and the Staff and Doctors at MD Anderson and ORMC.
