Bernard Kellenyi FAIA – In Memoriam

February 26, 2013

We at AIA-NJ were told of the sad news today of the passing of Bernard Kellenyi on February 24, 2013.  In a message from his son he was remembered as a wonderful person in many ways – decorated World War II B17 pilot, highly accomplished architect, successful business owner, respected community member – but most importantly Bernie was a loving, kind and caring family man and friend with an amazingly positive outlook on life. He will be sorely missed. Bernie died peacefully with John, Kathy, Teresita and Tawanna, his devoted caretaker of the last few years, at his side.

Services will be held:

Thursday, Feb 28th viewing from 6:30 to 9pm and Friday March 1st viewing from 8:30 to 9:30am at the John E. Day funeral home in Red Bank, NJ.

Funeral mass at 10 am on March 1st at St. James Catholic Church in Red Bank, NJ.   A noontime luncheon reception will be held at Salt Creek Grill, 4 Bingham Ave. Rumson.
