William Edward Kellogg was born in Bath, NY, October 22, 1938. He's the son of the late Ethel Wright Kellogg and younger brother of Bunny (Raftis)and Shirley Kellogg (Nichols).
We all grew up together on Vermont Street across the street from one another. After graduation from Bath Haverling High School, Bill did his undergraduate study at Mansfield University, and his graduate work at University of Rochester, Hobart College, Genesee University and Cortland University. He married Karen Elizabeth Knapp in Bath on August 25, 1962. They knew each other from High School and had met when Karen was a senior and Bill was a second year college music student at Mansfield.
Karen was born in Bath on January 5, 1942. Small world....my brother Dick Wright was her nursery mate in the Hospital. Karen graduated from Haverling in Bath, and went to college at Eastman School for Dental Hygienists in Rochester, NY. She also attended SUNY Cortland and Empire State College. As they were raising their family, Bill taught History for 32 years in Canandaigua, retiring in 1993. Karen worked in private practice for a dentist in downtown Rochester for a year, then as a dental hygiene teacher in Newark and Canandaigua Public Schools. She taught dental health to children for 32 years, retiring in 1998.
Bill and Karen have two children. Kristian Kenneth was born on October 19, 1968. Daughter Karolyn Elizabeth was born on June 25, 1973. Now that they're both retired, Bill and Karen love to travel. So far over the past few years, they have been to Hawaii, China, Costa Rico, Panama Canal, Scandanavia, Mexico, trips to Japan, Korea, Vietnam, the Mediteranean Sea and Europe, and most recently to Paris (see picture), Ireland, and cruised around Europe. Then, they added Australia & New Zealand to that long list.
Unfortunately, we lost Bill to cancer November of 2014.
