Harry, 93, passed away peacefully in his sleep December 17th, 2022. He was born on December 3, 1929 to Eva and Calvin Kelley.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 63 years Johnnie Kelley, Daughter Doris Jean, 3 Brothers Bill, James & Marshall and 2 Sisters Velma & Florene.
Harry is survived by his devoted Son Larry Kelley (Patty) of Okeechobee, Grandsons Kade Kelley (Jordan) and Blaine Kelley of Lake Placid, one Great Grandson Conlin Kelley and Great Granddaughter Riley Kelley and one Sister Shirley Bemendefer of Ft. Pierce.
He was a longtime Rancher until he retired. He was very involved in stockcar racing, hunting, fishing and loved air boating. He will always be remembered for his kindness to everybody, never meeting a stranger and always willing to help. He was definitely loved by everyone who had the pleasure of coming into contact with him. He will be so missed but never forgotten. There will be a private service at a later date.
All arrangements are entrusted to the Director Michael A. Brichetti, Funeral Home of Lake Placid.
