He served in the Navy during World War II and worked as a printer at the Coast Guard's Curtis Bay yard for more than 40 years before retiring in 1985.
Mr. Kelley was an avid flower and vegetable gardener.
His wife of 55 years, the former Esther Mitchison, died in 1997.
He was a member of Tridelphia Seventh Day Adventist Church in Clarksville.
Plans for a memorial service to be held at his church were incomplete yesterday.
