Kelly was a civil engineer for over 40 years, working in different states. He could operate any equipment, but was a number one blade operator. Kelly enjoyed fishing, hunting, and, most of all, being with his family. He was proud of his three children and was so proud when the grandbabies were around. He really enjoyed when he was off working and his family would come visit for the summer.
