Sean Kelly

Des Moines - Sean Michael Kelly was born on March 27, 1996 to Kymberly Traczyk and Kevin Kelly. He passed away peacefully on March 24, 2021 from complications due to a genetic liver disorder.

Sean loved music of all kinds, animals of all kind and kids. He loved the outdoors and making people laugh. He was really funny and there wasn't much he wouldn't do for a laugh. Sean was a friend to anyone who needed a kind ear, hug or a snack. He was always there if someone needed him. Sean was always kind and mindful of what others were going through. He lived his life exactly how he meant to and left this world without pain or fear. Sean will be missed and remembered fondly by all who had the good fortune to know and love him.

He is survived by his parents Kym and Kevin, his siblings, Erin Kelly, Megan Kelly and Brian Smith-Kelly; his loving grandparents, Linda and Denny Gass; aunts and uncles Shannon and Steve Vilmain, Eric and Kim Traczyk and the cousins he adored, Sarah, Holly and Blake. He is also survived by many friends who loved him.

A celebration of Sean's life will be held Saturday April 10, 2021, details may be found at
