David Preston Kelly, age 74, passed away on October 2, 2020, after a brief battle with cancer.
David was born in Cincinnati, OH to Lowell and Marie Kelly. He married Susan (nee Haworth) Kelly, and she survives.
David is also survived by his children; Stacie (Rusty) Sapper, Jason (Shannon) Kelly, Lianne (Matthew) Schmidt and Caitlin (Joel) Jaimes, grandchildren; Liam, Sean, Carlie, Jacob, Emerson, Callie, Anna, Zipporah, David and Daniel, sister, Lois (John) Cocanougher and many extended relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
David worked at GE as an engineer for over 50 years, retiring multiple times, as he kept going back. He was a member of the Vineyard Community Church and volunteered at the Healing Center and in the Hospitality Ministry making coffee, religiously. He loved classic cars, old coins and knew the name of every tree he saw. He attended the Greenhill’s Classic Coin Show every month since he was a child. David was always happiest working on the farm, tending to his prized zinnias and cosmos. Family was always at the center of his world. His work ethic and understated humor will be missed by all who knew him.
