SELKIRK Jonathan Kudlack, 39, lit up heaven's gates on Friday, January 27, 2006, surrounded by his devoted family and friends at St. Peter's Hospice Inn. He was born on July 26, 1966 in Catskill, N.Y. to his loving parents, James and Roberta Kudlack of Greenville, N.Y. Jonathan was an industrious young man and spent many summers working on the Welden Farm in Little Falls, N.Y. to save money so he could go to college. Jonathan was a graduate of Greenville Central High School and Siena College where he obtained his bachelor's degree in marketing. He was director of marketing for Integra Service Group in Schenectady. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his cherished wife and soulmate Kelli of Selkirk, N.Y.; and his pets Oliver and Gandolph who he loved like children. He is also survived by Kelli's mom, Filene Flowers-Scott of Albany, N.Y. who was his beloved Mama Filena. He was the proud uncle to Samuel Kudlack, Grace Kudlack, and James Kudlack all of Greenville, N.Y. He leaves behind his brothers, James (Abby) Kudlack of Greenville, Joel Kudlack, Greenville, Earle Kudlack, Greenville and Adam Kudlack of Kealakekua, Hawaii. He is dearly loved and survived by a legion of loyal and steadfast friends who were family to Jonathan and Kelli during their testament to courage during the past two years. Jonathan and Kelli were married on October 15, 1994 and were not only best friends but also eternal soul mates. Jonathan was a friend to all who knew him and lived a spectacular life to the fullest with zest, warmth, and unparalleled energy and dignity. Services will be private and at the convenience of the family and have been entrusted to the Babcock Funeral Home in Ravena, N.Y. A memorial to celebrate Jonathan's life is being planned and will be announced in the near future. Family, friends, and colleagues are invited to attend the upcoming memorial service to share their memories of a life well lived and a spirit that continues to nourish all those that Jonathan touched. The family would like to thank the staff of the Hospice Inn at St. Peter's for their dedication to the care and comfort of Jonathan and Kelli and their family and friends. A card of thanks will be published soon that acknowledges the individual acts of kindness that were displayed over this two-year journey. In lieu of flowers, donations in Jonathan's memory can be made to a cause of one's choice or gratefully accepted for the Jonathan Kudlack Memorial Fund at any Trustco Bank Branch.
