Son of Elmer & Mary (Cronin) Kelly
S1, US Navy, Korea
Holyoke, MA police officer
Lived in Goshen on Highland Lake in a cabin he inherited from his father, Elmer.
After his mother died, Elmer sent John to stay at his great-uncle's (my great-grandfather) farm. Even after Elmer remarried, John preferred spending his summers on the farm instead of in Springfield. My mother and her siblings always treated him like another sibling instead of a cousin; he always was just part of the immediate family.
John had Irish eyes - for the most part they sparkled with laughter and a joy in life, but when he got serious, they turned to granite.
He is missed.
