Obituary for David Anthony Kell

Burlington, VT

David Anthony Kell passed away on Monday, February 12, 2024 following a short illness.

He was born in Winooski, VT on June 2, 1963, the son of Lucille ( Campono ) and Roderick Kell. Dave’s childhood in 1960’s Winooski was special; he was well loved by his parents and siblings; neighborhood playmates were plentiful and always up for outside sports and games. The Thabaults’ back yard was considered sacred ground. Dave’s love for, and knowledge about sports, especially baseball, never faded.

So much was taken from Dave after he was diagnosed with schizophrenia in his early teens, but not his humor or his devotion to friends, his enjoyment of the activities he could do, or his dignity.

We have so much gratitude for the many years of support HowardCenter provided to Dave, and for the compassionate care provided by the staff at UVM Medical Center at the end of his life.

A graveside service will be held this spring at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Swanton.
