July 14, 1991 - August 27, 2012
Isaak Kornelsen died tragically in a collision on August 27 while biking to work along Whyte Avenue.
A bright student, lifelong runner, gifted musician, creative spirit, and thoughtful, loving friend, he will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and teammates. Though he was exceptionally talented in many areas, his work ethic and humility were an inspiration to all. He was passionate about running, learning Swedish, vegetarianism, and his job as a server and cook at Cafe Mosaics.
Isaak is survived by his parents, Nikki Ellis and Kevin Kornelsen; his sister, Al; his grandparents, Donelda (Walter) Parker, Heidi and Rudy Kornelsen, and Robert (Wendy) Ellis; and his many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 1 at McKernan Baptist Church (11103 - 76 Avenue). In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Edmonton Bicycle Commuters' Society or to an environmental charity of your choice.
