In Loving Memory of Dennis Kelley
Our beloved Dennis Kelley was one of twelve children born to Wilson Kelley and Thelma Jones of Spartanburg, South Carolina. Dennis married Harolette Johnson in 1978. Married 39 years, they raised two beautiful children. Dennis was a devoted husband, father, and recently, a proud grandfather.
Born with the "gift of gab", Dennis never met a stranger. He never held back any punches and was always quick to tell a joke to make people laugh. He was always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, he had a heart of gold and a beautiful smile.
Dennis loved driving and rebuilding old classic cars and faithfully supporting the Washington Redskins football team. His mastery of the "poker face" allowed him to take pleasure in winning money during a friendly game of poker with family and friends. He was also an avid bowler, participating for many years with his Fort Eustis league.
Dennis retired from the United States Army after serving over 20 years, where he received numerous awards and recognitions, including serving in the Gulf War. After retirement from the military, he worked as a skilled truck driver, traveling up and down the east coast. There were few vehicles he did not master.
Left to cherish his memories are his wife, Harolette, daughter, Janelle (Camille), son, Brandon (L’Oréal) and grandson, Jaxon. Sisters, Lois Jackson, Judy Manns (Harvey), Jenny Hales (Rolin), and Carol Neal (David). Brothers, James Kelley (Roxanne), William Kelley (Pam), Raymond Kelley (Deborah), and Jackie Kelley (Pat). Sisters in law, Deborah Primous (Khalid), Connie Harrod, Wendy Johnson, brother in law, Harvey Bakari (Marie), and a host of nieces and nephews, and special family friend, Ethel Durden. Dennis Kelley was preceded in death by his parents, Wilson Kelley and Thelma Jones, his brother Benny Warren Kelley, sisters Doris Rankins, and Ann Miller.
Special thanks to all of his military comrades and brothers in arms whom he considered family, they were very special to him and supported him in so many ways. We thank you for your service.
Even during illness, Dennis’ spirit was resilient and strong, defying medical diagnosis. He gracefully left this world in peace to reside in his heavenly home.
