Jeff Kelly Andreasen

Jeff Kelly Andreasen, named at birth Frances Edward Kelly (name change after adoption) of
Onigaming F.N sadly passed on August 21, 2023. Jeff was born on July 15, 1973 in Red Lake to
parents Leonard Sky and Janet Kelly.

He is survived by his daughters Kaye-Leigh Harper Andreasen, Juliette Harper Andreasen, son Elijah Harper Andreasen, stepdaughter Dayna Harper, stepson Blake Harper and his brother Dwayne (Jennifer) Steiner. Jeff is also survived by his aunts Mary Kelly, Phyllis Desbiens, and Frances Miller. Jeff was predeceased by his parents
Leonard Sky and Janet Kelly, brothers Terry Adams, Callahan Kelly and numerous extended family members. Jeff was a brilliant person with so much vision and hope for his people. Jeff was a 60’s scoop baby and had struggled with many issues about his adoption to people in

USA, but nonetheless he had an outlook on life so many take for granted such as family, growing up with cousins and being loved from birth by natural parents. Family was his greatest love. He loved each family member unconditionally. Jeff enjoyed hunting, fishing, music and spending time with family and friends who will miss his silly sense of humor and the willingness to go above and beyond. Jeff will be truly missed by those who knew him.

A traditional wake will be held on Tuesday September 5, 2023 at 3 p.m. at the Onigaming First Nations Council Chamber room followed by a traditional service on Wednesday September 6, 2023 at 10.m. Elder Ron Indian-Mandamin officiating. Interment will take place in Onigaming First Nation.
