Christopher L. Kelly passed away last week while traveling on an extended vacation through Alaska and Northern Canada.
He spent most of his life in Central Indiana and Arizona.
He went to Lebanon High School and Pembroke Central School in Corfu, N.Y. He graduated in 1978 and continued his education at Arizona State University.
He worked in management for different restaurants, and in the past few years he worked for his brother.
He was a very athletic man. He loved playing golf, along with a lot of other sports. He loved coaching his son's baseball and basketball teams.
He was such a happy man and loved to laugh, and he made those around him laugh as well.
He is survived by his girlfriend and partner, Billie Barton of Clermont, Indiana; son, Ian J. Kelly of Queencreek, Ariz.; daughter, Emma C. Kelly of Lebanon; father, Cecil R. Kelly of Sun City, Ariz.; mother, Nancie J. (Paddack) Kelly of Sun City; brothers, Patrick S. spouse, Rodney Turner of Laveen, Ariz., Scott spouse, Johnna (Farris) Kelly of Brownsburg; and sister, Seanna C. Kelly.
Since Chris was such a loving and happy man, the family would like it if you would send a donation in his name to your favorite charity. A life celebration will be planned in a couple of months.
