Melvin “Dick” Kelly, Sr.

October 25, 1941 – November 30, 2023

Melvin “Dick” Kelly, Sr., of Hanover, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, November 30, 2023, at 82.  He bravely fought with COPD for many years, and most recently, with congestive heart failure.

Dick was preceded in death by his mother, Lillian Violet Kelly; and father James Edward Kelly; and his life partner, Carole Canary Newbill.

Dick is survived by his sons, Melvin Kelly, Jr. (Trudy), Edward Kelly; his sister, Thelma “Booty” Kelly Adkins; his step-daughter, Deborah Lindsay (Scott); former wife, Margaret “Peggy” Kelly; granddaughter, Linda Marie Kelly Foutopoulous (Taki); and four great grandchildren, Tommy, Leo, Costa and Mia.

Dick was an excellent commercial plumber who had a passion for assisting others with his plumbing skills. Being outdoors, gardening, fishing, and traveling were among his favorite activities. He also greatly enjoyed visiting others and sharing a good meal with them. He had a quick wit and a good story that was appropriate for every occasion. He will be deeply missed by all.

The family will receive friends from 2pm to 3pm on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 with a service to begin at 3pm at Affinity Funeral Service, 8074 Mechanicsville Tnpk, Mechanicsville, VA 23111.

A private interment will be held on a separate date at Signal Hill Cemetery.
