Kelin Patrick MacDonald, of Louisville, KY passed away on May 12, 2016.

Kelin was born in Louisville, KY on July 21, 1986 to Paige Muessle Hincks & Pat MacDonald, and was a 2004 graduate of St. Xavier in Louisville.  He was a gentle soul, who was peaceful and compassionate to everyone he met.  Kelin was artistic, loved working with clay and making pottery, and had a special gift of relating to kids, especially his many cousins.  He was an avid UK Basketball fan, and religiously and passionately watched all their games.

Sadly, Kelin struggled with addiction to prescription pain medication for several years.  While he worked very hard to overcome his addiction, and had been doing really well, the pull was too strong and was too much for his body to take.  He left us far too soon due to an accidental overdose.

Dearly loved by his family and friends, the Kelin MacDonald Memorial Fund was established in his memory to help those struggling with addiction or other dependencies, as well as other causes that were dear to Kelin's heart.

Kelin made the world a better place for those of us that were lucky to of known him.  He was a gentle soul that always offered a helping hand to anyone in need.  He was quick with a joke and would laugh out loud at his so loved pranks.  From Kelin's heart to yours, please remember one of his favorite quotes:

"There is never, ever a time to be unkind."
