He was preceded in death by his parents. Kelly attended Lawrence County High School, and was employed by Wolverine Tube for 19 years. He was an accomplished carpenter and a successful real estate investor. His love for flying led to receipt of his pilot license in 2003. He was an animal-lover, especially his dog, Kingsley, who was by his side until his death. Kelly, who was known by all as "Tom-Tom," loved people and would go out of his way to help anyone. A stranger was simply a friend he had yet to meet. He was a born again Christian and always talked about his love for the Lord.
