Kelechi James Providence Amadi
July 7, 1986 – July 19, 2015
Kelechi James Providence Amadi was born in Binghamton, New York on July 7, 1986. He was one of five children born from the union of Paul and Bernadette (Harris) Amadi. He was a 2004 graduate of Monroe High School. After high school he attended Monroe County Community College.
Kalechi had several favorite pastimes including listening to music, reading, and writing poems. Kalechi was very outgoing and loved being around people; he would often tell jokes and loved to make others laugh. This pleasant aptitude of Kelechi along with his devoted heart toward family is something that will be missed and never forgotten. For the past six years, Kelechi had battled with cancer and treatment complications, while staying strong and courageous. Unfortunately the battle ended with Kelechi, age 29, of Monroe, losing his life. Kelechi is in all of our hearts and will be truly missed. We love you Kelechi.
