Kelley Jr., Edmund Patrick  
Edmund Patrick Kelley, Jr. HILTON HEAD ISLAND Edmund Patrick Kelley, Jr. (Pat Kelley), of Hilton Head Island, formerly Monroe, Connecticut, passed away peacefully Tuesday, November 4, 2014. Pat Kelley was a devoted Irish Catholic, fiercely loving, loyal and proud of his family, and loved and respected the Jesuits, the United States Marine Corps, Portland, Maine, Boston College, and most especially during baseball season, the mighty Boston Red Sox. He led his life with shear willpower, determination, perseverance, and love. Pat will be much remembered by his family for his unconditional love, unwavering support, witty sense of humor, loyalty, immense pride of his family, and doing anything to make his loved ones laugh. Pat Kelley (known as Eddie growing up) was born in Portland, Maine, the second son of Edmund Patrick Kelley, Sr., a postman with the United States Postal Services, and Mary Katherine McCarthy, a nurse with Mercy Hospital. After graduating in 1954 from Cheverus High School, Pat attended Boston College. He paid his own way through high school and college working many different jobs in order to pay tuition and rent. Pat loved Boston College and thereby all things Boston, and had the accent to prove it. Pat joined the United States Marine Corps at Officer Candidate School in Quantico, Virginia after graduating from B.C. Always up to a challenge of no confidence, he proved a sergeant's estimation incorrect and that at 120 pounds he wasn't too skinny to make it through basic training. Pat proudly served in Okinawa, Japan and Soc Trang, South Vietnam during the early years of the Vietnam War. Upon Pat's return to the United States in 1963, he was stationed to Camp Le Jeune, North Carolina. Pat spied Babs Booth at the Officer's Club while she was on a date with another Marine, and always told his children it was love at first sight. Pat was honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corps in December 1963. Pat made life-long friendships in the Marine Corps; it would always be a special brotherhood and a profound life experience for Pat. Following Journalism School at the University of North Carolina, Pat and Babs married on August 21, 1965. Pat started his working (sales) career at BF Goodrich in Akron, Ohio, where he became a father to Alfred Booth Kelley. In February 1968, Pat moved his expanding family to Singapore when BF Goodrich asked Pat to create a sales office in the region. Pat was responsible for building out an office and gaining a foothold in the Southeast Asian market. Shortly after arriving in Singapore, Pat became a father to his first daughter, Courtney Anne Kelley. Pat travelled extensively throughout Southeast Asia both professionally and personally. After a much loved living experience in Singapore, Pat's career took his family to Tehran, Iran for the next 4 years. Pat joined an established BF Goodrich office in Tehran, and was responsible for building upon his unique interpersonal skills with other peoples and cultures to obtain sales. Pat continued travelling extensively throughout the Middle East with business and his family. Pat enjoyed tremendously his travels and took sheer delight in meeting and talking to local people, learning about historical sights, and immersing himself in another culture. In 1976, after 10 years overseas, and as discontent in Iran was on the rise, Pat transferred back to Akron, Ohio. Upon news of the transfer back to the United States, his children recall Pat being relieved due to the then-current political state of affairs in Iran. Pat's career at BF Goodrich came to an end with a new opportunity at Sikorsky Aircraft in Connecticut. Pat moved his family to Monroe, Connecticut where he would live with his family for 25 years. His last born child, Megan Elizabeth Kelley, would join the family during this time. Pat spent the bulk of his career at Sikorsky using his unique understanding of different cultures to obtain and negotiate multimillion and billion dollar sales deals with foreign governments and military heads on behalf of Sikorsky. Pat continued to travel extensively adding Korean, Turkish, Israeli, and Australian markets to his background. Pat retired from Sikorsky in 1999; setup a consulting practice, Kelley International LLC, which he ran until he retired. Pat and Babs relocated to Hilton Head Island in 2004. Pat is survived by his wife, Babs Kelley, his son Alfred B. Kelley and his wife, Marcela Hahn, and their children Nate and Teddy Kelley of Brooklyn, New York, his daughter, Courtney A. Kelley and her husband, David Latzer, and their daughter Samantha Latzer of San Francisco, California, and his daughter, Megan E. Kelley and her husband, Daniel Leech, and their son Kersey Leech of Richmond, Virginia, and extended family members of sister-in-law, nieces and nephews. Pat will gain two new grandchildren, a boy and a girl, early next year. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday November 8, 2014 at 11:00am in St. Francis by the Sea Catholic Church, 45 Beach City Rd., Hilton Head Island. Arrangements entrusted to The Island Funeral Home and Crematory. www.theislandfuneralhome.com
