TODAY IS MARCH 3, 2016 AS I READ COACH LAKE KELLY'S OBIT I JUST WISH SO MUCH THAT HE WAS STILL ALIVE. WE GREW UP LIVING CLOSE TO EACH OTHER STARTING SCHOOL IN THE FIRST GRADE TOGETHER AND WERE VERY GOOD FRIENDS FOR HIS ENTIRE LIFE! I HOPE AND PRAY WHEN MY TIME COMES FOR ME TO LEAVE THIS LIFE THAT I'LL BE WITH COACH KELLY IN HEAVEN.

Mrs Kelly; I was a freshman at Amelia High School in 1960 when your husband, Lake, was the basketball coach. I suspect that this might have been his first coaching job. I marvelled at his coaching ability and remember almost beating a team , Hughes High School, a large inner city team, at our small gym. I think we had the best conditioned team because he had a conditioning program called "running the steps" in the school. As a freshman, I would see the varsity team running after practice and was secretly glad that when I became a varsity player, I didn't have to do that drill. By then, Mr. Kelly had moved on to a bigger school. He was so handsome and you were so beautiful that it took one's breath away. Later in my life, after going through medical training and establishing my medical practice, I was enthralled to see Mr. Kelly coaching the Austin Peay team in the NCAA Tournament in 1987. He was as handsome as ever and I was thriiled to see his success in coaching. In retrospect, I should have had no doubts that he would eventually be in the premier basketball tournament having coached another small school team to overacieve. I tried to contact Mr Kelly a few years later, but the Athletic Dept. at Austin Peay couldn't tell me where he was residing. I am now going back to Amelia High School for my 50th reunion and decided to see waht I could find out about Mr. Kelly. I found this obituary on Google, and thought I would add my message the the "Guest Book". I'll make sure to tell my high school teamates about Mr. Kelly and allof his achievements. I am blessed to have known your husband, even from afar. He was an inspiration to all of the young people he coached and those who only observed how he led his life. Regards to you and your family, Dennis Fitzgerald MD
