Michael Kelley Obituary
Michael passed away October 25, 2015, at the age of 68, after a brief battle with cancer, surrounded by those who loved him. He was preceded in death by his parents, Lynn and Helen Kelley. He leaves behind to honor his memory, his wife of 44 years, Vicki, his sons Brian and Matthew, his daughter-in-law Jenny and his two grandchildren Aiden and Emma, his sister Janet and niece Denice, as well as many in the extended Marshall family.
Michael spent his entire engineering career within the petroleum industry, mostly in Kern County. He became the go-to guy for answers within that community and was respected by all who worked with him. His keen fascination with science, technology and energy, is exemplified by his many remaining experiments, engineering/research notebooks and his extensive research library.
If you wish to honor Mike's memory, the family requests that a donation be made to Cal-State University Fullerton's College of Engineering and Computer Sciences, through the university's Scholarship Giving Program at
or by donating to your local ASPCA organization.
