Harold Russell Kjellman, Jr. (affectionately known as Papa by many) of Hollis, NH, went to be with his precious Lord Jesus Christ on Friday, December 28, 2018 at the age of 90.
Born February 20, 1928 in Providence, RI, son of the late Harold Sr. and Ellen (Johnson) Kjellman. Predeceased by step-son Stephen Fait who is survived by his spouse. Harold is survived by his wife of 31 years, Meredith Fait Kjellman, sons Robert, Jon, and Stephen Kjellman and their spouses; step-children Peter Fait, Dorinda Bridges, David Fait, and their spouses. Also, his dear loving brother, Robert Kjellman, sister and brother-in-law Lynn and Lee Cote, many loving grandchildren and their spouses, step-grandchildren and spouses, and numerous great-grandchildren. Also, cousins, nieces, nephews, and their spouses.

Harold graduated from East Providence High School in 1945. He attended Brown University before enlisting in the US Army from which he was honorably discharged in 1947.

He volunteered in prison ministry for many years in Concord, NH. He was a member of the Gideons International organization for 30 years. He was a member of Nashua Baptist Church in Nashua, NH. He loved and played many sports and still talked about being on the RI state winning basketball team in High School which played in the Tech Tourney at the famous Old Boston Garden.

Meredith and family - I am so sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of getting to know Harold a bit during some small group discussions at NBC. What a kind soul he was! May he rest in peace, and your family be comforted during this time of temporary goodbyes.....

Oh my friends, I am so so so sorry to hear of Papa's leave to join his beloved Jesus. I'm certain he will be remembered in the most wonderful way that he presented to everyone who met him. I know I will. May God keep you all wrapped in His arms of peace during this difficult time and ever after as he is remembered. My condolences and sympathies to you all, Pam Hatfield
