Tribute & Message From The Family

ROBERT KELTY age 54. Long Story, short… Big Bob was the "Jack of all Trades!" In one day-he could paint a house, plant a garden, fix a hole in the pool, stain the deck, tell 20 detailed stories and ride his bike 25 miles with time left to eat a whole gallon of ice cream!

He had a heart of gold, he lived for his 3 boys, he turned to God for guidance, he would drop what he was doing to help others all while fighting a number of demons for the majority of his life. He wanted nothing more than to lead a sober life and prove to everyone "he could do it". He was a compassionate and loving father, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend.

Left on earth to mourn his absence is his former spouse and forever friend Julianne (nee Russo), sons Robert, Vincent and David. Siblings Sharon, Judy O'Leary (late Colm), Cindy (George), Jimmy (Laura Ann) and Dawn Plogger (Bobby). In laws, Mark, Rosalie, Michelle (Marty), Monica ("T"), Chip (Kathy), Honorable John J. Russo (Karen), Amy (Domenic) and Christa (Charlo). A host of nieces and nephews, cousins, sponsors and friends. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the family would be appreciated.
