Andrew “Paul” Kelly passed away on the first day of February, 2016 at the age of 74, after suffering a long illness. He is survived by his loving wife Judy; his son Thomas and wife Jill, their children Keaton and Morgan; his son Christopher and daughter Maddelyn; his step-son Michael Wallen and wife Lisa and their children Maryn, JohnMichael, Joshua, Brandon, and Jordon. He was preceded in death by his mother Mildred Beck of Florida and his brother Chuck Kelly of Arizona.
Being a man of many accomplishments, Paul served both his country and community well. After leaving the Air Force as a rescue pilot, he worked for U-Haul, as well as owning a gas station/auto repair shop. He was most proud of his service for the people of Charlotte County Florida as a Deputy Sheriff for a total of 16 years. Everywhere he went in the community people knew and loved him.
Paul was born in Cleveland, Ohio on April 22, 1941. He lived most of his life in Florida, but chose to retire close to his brother-in-law Steve Riley and his wife Diane, in Portland, Tennessee, whom were most supportive of Paul throughout his illness. He will be greatly missed by the many friends that he made during his life, and dearly missed by those closest to him.
