Kelly was a strong yet gentle spirit who found joy in simple things and beauty in nature. He enjoyed traveling, fishing and had a lifelong interest in motorcycles and all things mechanical. He was a kind and loving husband and father who taught the value of hard work, being humble and generous, and how to appreciate the value of family. He was a beloved Papa to his grandchildren with whom he enjoyed playing Legos, completing puzzles, coloring and looking at pictures of wildlife and machinery.

He will be dearly missed.
