Obituary Condolences

KELLY, Matthew Of Marshfield, Massachusetts, passed away suddenly on June 1, 2016. Beloved son of Maureen "Renie" (Flannery) Kelly Godding, and her husband Jim "Chipa" of Marshfield and J. Lawrence of Weymouth. Dear brother of Thomas Kelly of Providence, RI, and Bridget Kelly of Marshfield. Grandson of Alfred and the late Lorriane Flannery of South Boston, and the late John and Rita Kelly. Matt was the loving uncle of Olivia Kelly and leaves many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and hundreds of friends. Matt was a member of Local 103 Murphy Electric. Matt, aka "Pretty Girl Kelly, aka "Pirelli", aka "Matty", was one of the nicest, most genuine people this town has had the pleasure of knowing. Matt lived for sports and the beach, but mainly for his friends and family. In particular, his niece Olivia, who nicknamed him "Aunty Matt" and made him feel like an invincible superhero. He could light up a room with his contagious smile, bright blue eyes, and mane of hair. Everyone who had the pleasure of being a part of his life knew that his selflessness and empathy had no bounds. Matt will be cherished and remembered for the joy he brought to everyone he encountered. Visiting hours will be held on Monday, June 6, 2016 from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the MacDonald Funeral Home, 1755 Ocean Street (Rte 139), MARSHFIELD.
