John P Kelley

April 30, 1955 — April 2, 2022

On Saturday, April 2, 2022, the world lost John Patrick Kelley. A truly amazing man, and a most precious soul. A loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend.

If you knew John, you loved John, His laughter and personality would light up any room. He loved God, his family, and his country with all his heart, and he loved sharing his faith with all who would listen. John was always ready with some advise, an encouraging word, or just a hug. He was a hardworking man who wore many hats throughout his life, and he always treasured the cinematic experience. John was a strong fighter who, in the end, left us all too soon

His children, Matthew, Rachel, and son in-law Tony. His grandchild, Gavin. And his siblings, Kathy, Bernie, and Mike.
