ROCHELLE — Benjamin Donald Kettleson, 30, passed away Aug. 31, 2020 at his home in Rochelle. Ben was born on Jan. 15, 1990 to Bradd A. and Linda J. (Andersen) Kettleson in DeKalb. He graduated from Rochelle Township High School in 2008. After high school, Ben attended a trade school to learn the trade of welding.
Ben is survived by his parents, Bradd and Linda of Rochelle; siblings, Brandon Kettleson, Abbey (Jason) Rutledge, Jacob Kettleson and Hailey Kettleson all of Rochelle; nieces, Claire Escatel and Quinn Rutledge and nephew, Griffin Rutledge.
He was a man of many words that always left a smile on everyone’s face wherever he went. He was a great man and was loved by many. He was always persistent in his next adventure, whether it be a song on a guitar or a place in someone’s heart. He came into the world as a great person and left this world in the same way. He loved anyone and everyone that crossed his path. He was never one to shy away from someone especially the ones he cared most for. He will be forever in our hearts and he will never be forgotten.
There will be a private grave side service held at a later date. Cremation care has been provided by the Unger-Horner Funeral Home. Memorials may be made to the family and sent to the Unger-Horner Funeral Home, P.O. Box 87, Rochelle, IL 61068.
