Memorial services will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at his home in Eagle River. His ashes will be scattered on the Little Susitna River.
Kelly was born Aug. 16, 1964, in Washington. He moved to Alaska in March 2000. Kelly graduated from Riverside High School in Washington and started working at Mount Spokane in Spokane, Wash., working in maintenance. When he moved to Alaska, he worked at Anchorage Community Mental Health Services from 2000 to 2008. He was named employee of the month at Anchorage Community Mental Health Services.
Kelly was an avid fisherman, hunter and all-around outdoorsman. He also loved the Seattle Seahawks and NASCAR. He never missed a game and never missed a race, his family wrote.
"Kelly loved to make others happy," his family also wrote. "He wanted to share his passion for Alaska with everyone. He enjoyed being able to help friends, family, co-workers and strangers. Kelly loved spending time with his 'shoe' and his three children. He was loved and will be dearly missed by many."
