To the Allen Family,

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Kelley. I met Kelley in Daytona as a teammate and I was fortunate to be his roommate along with Billy. Three young "kids" as college freshman. I remember Kelley to be a fun loving kid with such a good outlook on things and he had one of the best laughs...infectious. I often tell a story of Kelley swimming in the ocean for the first time. His grin from ear to ear as he ran toward the water and he couldn't...

I am just hearing about this tragic death and would like to offer my sincere condolences. Kelley and I swam together at Georgia Southern. What a nice guy he was and loved to have a good time. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Six months later and Kelley is still a strong presence. I suspect he always will be. Today my daughter Bruna got to the wall in 4th and I could hear Kelley telling her: "hit the wall hard, hit it hard!". She left the wall in 1st and won. With KAH2O written with a marker in her hand. As she always does.

Dear Jean,
We will truly miss Coach Kelley. Julianne and I saw him at a TBAY meet a couple of weeks ago and were recalling our fun times swimming way back when, and he told me you are still competing. He was very proud of you!! Kelley was my first masters coach and coached both of my children at CAT. We all loved him so much and are so grateful for his special contribution to our lives and the lives of all of his swimmers.
May his memory be eternal.
Love, the Tsagaris...

To the Allen family,

As I read all of the kind words about Kelley, I am proud and sad – proud to have known Kelley and sad that he has been taken. I write this to you because I want all of you to know how much Kelley means to my family – the Maurer family.

We met “Tall Panther” during his college swimming days when Billy and Panther were roommates. From the time they met, Billy and Panther were inseparable, and that is how Panther became such a huge part of the Maurer...
