Dear AIA Members, Officers and Directors,
It is with great sadness that I share the news of Matthew J. Kelly's death. Matthew was Justin Kelly's brother and he worked with Justin as a manager at Kelly Manufacturing Company in Wichita, KS. Matthew was the son of Carl and JoAnn Kelly who, along with Justin, have been active members of the AIA for many years. Matthew passed away on Saturday, October 16, 2010. He was born on May 9, 1970 and was 40 years old. Matthew is survived by his wife Heather and their two children, Brett and Sydney.
Visitation will be held at Frank Funeral Home in Wellington, KS on Thursday, October 21, 2010 beginning at 1 PM. Funeral Services will be held at Council Hill Christian Church in Peck, KS on Friday, October 22, 2010 at 10 AM. A memorial fund has been established in his name with the Council Hill Christian Church. Condolences can be made at the Funeral Home website: www.frankfuneralhome.net.
It is difficult to express my sincere sympathy to Justin, Heather, Carl and JoAnn for this terrible loss of their family member as well as a co-worker in our aviation instrument family.
Please keep the Kelly family in your thoughts and prayers as they mourn their loss.
