Kelly was welcomed into his Savior's arms on Thur. Oct. 21, 2021.
Kelly was born to Lucien & Thelma McManus on September 28, 1955. The youngest of 5 children, Kelly married Beth Lynn Swain on October 30, 1982. They are blessed with twelve children and fourteen grandchildren. Kelly passed just ten days short of the 39th wedding anniversary.
Kelly gave his heart to Jesus in 1985 and his life was forever changed. He sacrificed for the benefit of others in so many ways.
Kelly is known for his incredible work ethic and extensive skill set, he was employed at Schweitzer Engineering Lab in Pullman, WA. He is also known for his sense of humor, his storytelling abilities, his love for Country, his love for God, his Scott-Irish heritage and his willingness to help people.
Kelly enjoyed WWII history, tinkering on cars, camping, John Wayne movies, country swing dancing, spending time with his family and ice cream.
We rejoice in Kelly's eternal promotion and everlasting joy: yet our hearts are broken from the loss of this broad shouldered man who gallantly carried so much for so many. He will be greatly missed.
There will be a public viewing for anyone who wants to say their last goodbyes on Thursday October 28 from 2-4 pm at Short’s Funeral Chapel in Moscow ID.
In honor of his memory, we ask all friends, family and acquaintances to accompany us in celebration of his life this Friday October 29, 11 am at Living Faith Fellowship in Pullman WA. Lunch will be served following the service.
