HUGH CLAYTON KELLY

HUGH CLAYTON KELLY

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Hugh Kelly on July 18 at his residence in Kamloops. The oldest son of Jack and Pep Kelly, Hugh was born in Shamrock Saskatchewan, March 5, 1931, and grew up in Canoe. Pre-deceased by his beloved wife Carol (nee Loring), his daughter Daryl and his son Dale, Hugh leaves behind his daughters, Lynn and Coleen, and his son Laverne, as well as eight grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and a large extended family.

Hugh spent most of his life in Salmon Arm. He worked for many years in the logging industry, driving truck and repairing machinery before he retired to the farm. He could fix anything mechanical, it seemed, and his shop was always a popular spot for repairs or just for conversation. He and Carol loved to camp, and travelled throughout BC and into Alaska in search of the perfect campsite and fishing spot.

He will be sadly missed by all who knew him, particularly when it is time to back up the trailer.
