Wallace Kellegrew, 90

Apr 25, 2017

Wallace R. Kellegrew, a resident of Chelmsford, formerly of Medford, passed away peacefully on April 23. He was 90 years old.

He was the beloved husband of Viola May (Giggey) Kellegrew to whom he was married for 36 years.
Wally was born in Cambridge, son of the late Edward and Irene (Dale) Kellegrew. He was a graduate of Medford Vocational High School and upon graduation he enlisted in the United States Navy where he honorably served his country in World War II.

For more than 30 years, Mr. Kellegrew was employed by the New England Telephone Company where he worked as a foreman. Wally worked for a time for Wakefield Savings after his retirement. When he was not working, he enjoyed time spent candlepin bowling and dancing. Winters were spent at his home in Hallandale, Florida and many summers on Cape Cod. More than anything, Wally was a people person.

He enjoyed meeting new people and catching up with old friends, all of which will miss him dearly.
