On Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2018, Earl Thomas Kellberg’s life ended in a tragic accident at the age of 36. Earl was born Jan. 4, 1982, in Spokane, Wash., two months early weighing only 3 pounds, 10 ounces. Earl was a fighter from day one!
Raised in Bayview, Idaho, Earl and his bothers spent countless hours shoveling snow for anyone and everyone who needed it. Earl also loved detailing his bike, which turned into a passion that he continued doing for many years.
At age 18, Earl ajnd his family moved to Superior, Mont. It was here he met the love of his life, Brianna Kruger. Though life took them in separate directions, the saying, “If you love something, let it go; if it comes back that is how you know it’s for keeps” rang true for them. Five years ago, they were reunited and began their forever life together with their three sons and beautiful baby girl born May 10, 2018, the light of Earl’s life.
Earl is survived by his wife, Brianna Kruger; sons, Marcus, Derek and Matthew; daughter, Kinsley (Punky); mother, Dawn Kellberg; father, Rick Kellberg; siblings, Jaime Kellberg, Tonya Kellberg, Shane Kellberg, Jesse Kellberg and Dustin Kellberg; grandmother, Delpha Edlin; as well as nieces, nephews, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many many friends.
Earl was preceded in death by grandfather, Earl Thomas Edlin; grandmother, Doris Marie Kellberg; and grandfather, Richard LeeRoy Kellberg.
Earl’s life was taken too soon and he will be deeply missed. He will be remembered for his infectious smile and endless laughter, his willingness to help anyone and everyone — no matter their need — as well as the jokes and pranks he’s pulled on all of us. Most of all, we will miss his huge heart and beautiful soul.
A celebration of life is pending at a later date.
