Cecil Kellum

March 11, 1964 — November 2, 2020

Carlsbad and Rio Rancho, New Mexico

Our beloved husband, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend Cecil Hartley Kellum, Jr., of Carlsbad and Rio Rancho, New Mexico entered into eternal love and reembrace on November 2, 2020 Texas just north of Van Horn, while completing his duties for AT&T.

For 40 years, Cecil was a telecommunications specialist working for various telecommunication companies.  His coworkers cleverly nicknamed him Dr. Kellum because of his ability to fix what appeared to others as unfixable.

With his sparkling personality, Cecil would make total strangers his closet friends very quickly.

Cecil’s wit, charm will be missed dearly by his beloved family and friends, as well as his generous and huge heart of love, grace, and humbleness.

Cecil is preceded in death by his beloved fur child Phoebe and his mother Edith Audrinne (Archer) Kellum and his father Cecil Hartley Kellum, Sr.

Those left to honor and cherish the memory of Cecil is his husband of five years however entwined by hearts of love for 20 years Michael Bonner of Carlsbad and Rio Rancho, New Mexico; his sisters Audrienne Teach of Kingsland, Texas and Cecilia Stuart Watkins of El Paso, Texas; one nephew Trey Teach and wife Liza of Austin, Texas as well as his beloved extended family and his many phenomenal friends.
