Roger Dale Kelly

August 21, 1955 ~ September 7, 2021 (age 66)


Roger Dale Kelly of Ponce de Leon, Florida passed away Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the age of 66. He was born August 21, 1955 in DeFuniak Springs, Florida to the late Buck and Virginia Kelly.  Roger absolutely loved to fish at the bay in his free time. He worked as an auto mechanic and was very knowledgeable in diagnosing and repairing the problems. Also, he worked aboard a tugboat for many years, which was enjoyable simply because he liked being on the water.

He is preceded in death by a baby daughter.

Roger is survived by his wife, Pamela; two sons, Cody Kelly and Buddy Kelly and wife Shaina; one daughter, Jennifer Thompson and husband Scotty; four grandchildren, Ethan, Cameron, Allyson, and Case; one brother, David Kelly and wife Bonnie; one sister, Mary McCormick; and Jason Dollar whom Roger considered a son.

In keeping with his wishes, he will be cremated with no services.
