Paul Thomas Kelley Obituary
Kelley, Paul Thomas born November 10, 1950, in Red Bud, Illinois, died in St. Louis, Missouri, on July 1, 2014. He is survived by his wife, Carol Zimmermann of St. Louis, and by literally a host of family and friends who dearly loved his wit, work and his humor. Although cancer took the life from his lips, it could not kill the humor in his heart. One of 12 brothers and sisters from a large Irish family in southern Illinois, Paul worked and laughed and made others laugh throughout his life, as he learned farming and the tree business in addition to becoming a gifted baker. Those who must live without him will never forget baked confections he would pull from the oven, often accompanied by a pearl of wisdom, such as, "I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken." Kids and big kids alike loved to learn by his side the old trades of baker and latter day frontiersman. Paul is now gone, and we have all lost something special in his passing. Services: Visitation 4p.m.-8p.m., Friday, July 4, Quernheim Funeral Home, Waterloo, IL. Service 10 a.m., Saturday, July 5, New Life Church, Waterloo, IL
