Obituary for Pat Kelly

KELLY, Patrick "Pat" Walter
January 24, 1945 - May 30, 2022

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Patrick Walter Kelly on May 30, 2022 in his 77th year. Pat is survived by his son Shanon Kelly of Alberta and grandson Joel Kelly of Ottawa, his sisters Noreen Galligan (Mike) and Jean Bimm (Ron). Pat was predeceased by his loving wife Ethel (Rose) and his brother Jim (Dianne).

Pat was born in Pembroke, Ontario and was educated at St. James Catholic School in Eganville. He later joined the Canadian Armed Forces and spent many years travelling the world. One of his fondest memories were the years he was with the Royal Canadian Airborne. After he retired, he went to work for real estate and also opened a small engine repair shop. Pat loved the North where he spent time exercising another love of hunting and fishing. Reading was a passion, especially anything on history. He will be dearly missed by his brothers in-law, sisters in-law, nieces nephews, cousins and friends.
