In Memoriam: Kelly Johansen

It is with a heavy heart that Lakehead University has learned of the passing of Kelly Johansen, a member of our Residence and Conference Services team.

Over the years, Kelly shared a lot with his co-workers, including an extreme level of kindness, compassion, and a tireless will to help others.

Kelly started his career at Lakehead University in October 1995. Over the years, he worked in several roles, including with Physical Plant as a lead hand in Housekeeping, and a few years ago he moved to the Residence Services team. Last year, he was elected to the Unifor bargaining committee. Kelly will be sorely missed.

A celebration of Kelly's life will be held at the Oliver Road Recreation Centre in Thunder Bay (563 Oliver Rd.), this Friday, December 20, from 6-9pm.

In honour of Kelly, our Thunder Bay campus flag will be lowered to half-mast on Friday.
