Edmond R. Kelsey, 71, Oneida, passed away peacefully Sunday, April 13, 2014, with his family by his side. He was born January 23, 1943, in Green Bay to Louis and Eva (Nellis) Kelsey.

Ed graduated from Green Bay West High School, Class of 1961. On May 30, 1964, he married Sharelle Murphy, and they would have celebrated their 50th Anniversary in May.

Ed enjoyed time with his golfing friends at Crystal Springs, good friends from the Safari Club, and his buddies from the Bay Motel Coffee Shop. He especially enjoyed spending time at the cottage, hunting, fishing, riding his tractor, and watching the Packers. Ed was looking forward to time in their new condo in Florida. Above everything else, he loved peace and harmony.
