The Grade 2 Niagara Regional Police Pipe Band of St. Catharines, Ontario, is mourning the loss of a bright young piper after the sudden death of Mitchell Kelley, aged 18, after a motor vehicle accident on May 16th, 2009.
The Niagara Falls, Ontario, teen was a member of the band for several years. In addition to the band, Kelley was a swimming instructor at the Boys & Girls Club of Niagara and was an accomplished student at the Niagara Christian Community of Schools.

Two Facebook groups have been created for those wishing to join and add a tribute: In Memory of Mitchell Kelley and Rest in Peace Mitchell Kelley.
On behalf of the piping and drumming world, we extend our sympathy to Mitchell Kelley’s family and friends and to the Niagara Regional Police Pipe Band.
