Obituary Condolences

KELLY Clement M. Mike Kelly, 82, passed away on April 28, 2013 at his Fleet Landing residence in Atlantic Beach, FL. Born in Jacksonville, he was the son of the late Florence Agnes Wolff Jones of Jacksonville and Maurice Kelly of Fernandina Beach. The Kelly Family dates back considerably on Amelia Island and was involved in everything from state and local politics to the area's shrimping industry. Mike was also loved dearly by his caring step father, the late Earle Edward Jones of Jacksonville. Mike attended Robert E. Lee high school and very much enjoyed playing varsity basketball and football for the Generals. After serving in the Korean War, he graduated from the University of Florida. He was a pharmaceutical sales representative during his early career and later became a successful stock broker and financial advisor where he eventually initiated Brokerage Services for Barnett Bank. Mike was an avid outdoorsman and ongoing sports enthusiast with a love for the beach, boating, fishing, scuba diving and racquetball. He was also an avid reader of almost every kind of book or text available and delighted in visiting family on Amelia Island. His unique humor, analytical perspectives and opinions were of special value to those who knew him and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his two children, Greg Kelly of Atlantic Beach and Lesley Kelly of Salt Lake City, Utah; his two grandsons, Travis and Jack Kelly, his two sisters, Angela Arnett of Washington, DC and Drusilla Edge of Tallahassee, FL; and his dear cousin, Mary Agnes White of Fernandina Beach, along with many other loving friends and relatives. The Family would like to thank Community Hospice for their graceful guidance and care.
