He is the last of the wonderful Kesselring Boys. I know you will miss him, he was a true Kesselring that was so knowledgable and enjoyed talking and explaining things to you. A true lover of nature, he had to be to put up with the bears in his area. Our sympathy goes to all of you. Love, Marcia and Don Steckly

Dear Eric, Roma and family. I am so sorry to hear of passing of your father. I recall meeting him at the office once or twice - what a gentle man and gentleman he was. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Regards, Wanda Hannaford
