Our beloved father and papa, Tony Kellers, age 75, passed away on September 25, 2020.
He is survived by his love, Joanna (Joni) Lucarino, his son, Anthony (wife Desiree), daughter,
Nikki Brown (husband Jerry), grandchildren, Elle and Joseph Kellers, brother, Michael, and
countless friends whom he cherished. Tony was an accomplished landscape architect.
Founding Natural Designs in the early 1980s, he continued working joyfully until his death.
He was a passionate volunteer whose work in Little Italy, St. Augustine’s, and Cornerstone of Hope
was honored over many years. Tony will always be remembered for his compassion, his generosity,
and his love of people and community.
A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Holy Rosary Church Cleveland.
The family respectfully requests invited guests only.
We are planning a special event to benefit the causes he furthered, post-Covid (next year hopefully), that will
commemorate Tony’s life properly: a celebration befitting a man who spent his life in the fellowship and service
of others, a giant gathering where family, friends, and community can properly come together, hug each other,
cry together, laugh together, tell (and re-tell) stories of this special man we all loved so much. In other words,
the true blow-out bash he deserves. To mark the end of a time of loss, isolation, and separation, to embrace togetherness,
to honor everything Tony was and what each of us can strive to be. We hope you’ll join us then.
