Robert “Bob” Lewis Kelly, Jr., 83, of Odin, passed away Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital surrounded by his family. He was born the son of Robert Sr. and Edith (Deadmond) Kelly on April 28, 1934 in Odin. He married Constance June Poninski on April 9, 1955 in Centralia. She preceded him in death on May 1, 2014.

Bob is survived by his loving daughters Julie and Monte Hoover of Odin and Debbie and Gary Lehman of Flora; treasured grandchildren Anya Kelly, Patrick Dagg, wife Kayla, Kelly Smith, husband Nathan; cherished great-grandchildren Caleb, Hunter, and Reed Jourdan, Carter Dagg, and Danner and Baby Smith; devoted brothers, Rick Kelly, wife Terri of Centralia, Larry Kelly, wife Marsha of Salem; sisters-in-law Cathy Kelly of Odin and Barb Rohner of Junction City; brother-in-law Mike Poninski, wife Sue; and many fond nieces and nephews.

In addition to his wife and both of his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his brothers Fred Kelly and Michael “Mick” Kelly; and brothers-in-law Bobby Poninski and Donald Rohner.

Bob had many passions in life. Anyone who knew him would never be surprised to see him seated on a lawn mower as this was one of his favored past times. Bob also had a faithful heart for Odin School. He was considered a fervent Odin Eagles supporter, always ready to encourage the team from his bleacher seat. When Bob wasn’t cheering on his beloved Odin Eagles, he would be rooting on the Chicago Cubs. There will be an absence at Project Bread table where he faithfully enjoyed fellowship.

Services for Bob will be held 1:30 p.m. Friday, October 20, 2017 at Irvin Macz Funeral Home in Odin with Pastor Ray Barnes officiating. Burial will follow at Deadmond Cemetery in Odin. Friends and relatives are invited to visiting hours from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Friday, October 20, 2017 at Irvin Macz Funeral Home in Odin. Memorial contributions may be made to Project Bread.
