Family of "Padre" Kelley, Our deepest sympathy and condolences on the passing of Father Kelley. We will miss his Irish Wit/Charm and the numerous stories (e.g. like when he got "removed" from pre-k or kindergarten class because he talked to the children trying to nap - go figure).
Originally met Father Jack as a teenager at St. Marys in Uxbridge back in the 70's and we always stayed in touch.
Enjoyed seeing his pictures of his days studying at Berkley, CA near the Haight-Ashbury hippie section. Also enjoyed his Italian classes and the Italian Restaurant meals and students trying to order dinner in Italian at the end of class.
Upon his retirement we were able to assist him in his move to Shrewsbury. He was a true and loyal servant to God and the Church and will be deeply missed. Jimmy (Seamus/Giacomo), Jane, Maryjane (MJ) and J (Seamus) Riley Barron
