Rodney Kelm


Rodney Gerald Kelm, 62, died Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015, at the Billings Clinic in Billings.
He was born to Eno and Betty (Quam) Kelm Dec. 1, 1952, in Williston, N.D. He grew up in Plentywood until 1964 when the family moved to Forsyth. He lived in Forsyth with his parents and two brothers, Cory and Tim, until he finished school. He then enlisted in the U.S. Army.
After an honorable discharge, he returned to Forsyth where he began his railroad career and met Patty Cellmer. They raised two children, Sheri and Dustin and were an important part of their grandchildren’s lives. When Rod met Patty, he had a daughter Keri from Debbie Kelm. Next came Dustin.
He enjoyed life to the fullest. The water at Fort Peck Lake brought the family all together — fishing, skiing, camping, being with all his family.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Patty; and a brother, Tim Kelm.
Survivors include his son, Dustin Kelm of Glasgow; daughter, Sheri Lynn Kelm of Fort Peck; three grandchildren; a brother, Cory Kelm of Nampa, Idaho; and his father, Eno Kelm of Apache Junction, Ariz.
