In memoriam: Kelly Grosky, 1967 to 2014

Volleyball Canada is saddened by the sudden passing of former National Team player Kelly Grosky of Calgary.

The father of three, who was born in Saskatchewan, died suddenly on Wednesday, November 26 at the age of 47.

Kelly was involved with volleyball for most of his life: winning a National Volleyball Championship with the University of Calgary; becoming a Canadian Inter-University Athletic Union Most Valuable player; competing with the National Team and playing professional volleyball in Europe.

It was in the late 1980s and early 1990s that he represented Canada at the junior, B and senior A (number three in the photo) team levels.

Kelly graduated with Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Calgary, and also worked to achieve his Fellowship in Canadian Securities. He recently began a new career as an Environmental Consultant.

In addition to playing volleyball, he enjoyed golf, fishing, and loved coaching. Kelly is survived by his sons, Kobe, Zack, Ty and their mother Dana of Calgary; his parents Betty and Gerry Grosky of Tomahawk, AB; and family members and close friends.

Funeral Services will be held at Rock Pointe Church (255024 Lochend Road, Calgary) on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In living memory of Kelly Grosky, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.
