Kelly died May 8, 2017 at Memorial Herman Hospital in Houston, Texas. A native of Jasper and a former resident of Galveston, he was a longtime Houston resident.

He loved working with the Southeast congregation’s 39’ers group. “Serving God in any capacity” is what Kelly has done for the past 75 years. He is highly esteemed and loved by the Southeast congregation.

Kelly is survived by his son, Michael A. Mixon & wife, Karen, of Puyallup, Washington, and a sister, Juanita Baggett, of Kinder, Louisiana. He is also survived by a host of other family and friends.

Kelly was preceded in death by his wife of over 46 years, Barbara.
