I was saddened to hear about Mr. Kelly's passing. I worked at Freeport HS in the Guidance Dept. and have fond memories of Marty. Every St. Patrick's Day he'd bring his wife's Irish Soda Bread to enjoy. And I still have the Waterford Crystal ring holder he gave as a gift one Christmas. When I think of Mr. Kelly it puts a smile on my face, and I'll always remember his BIG smile.

Marty was an educator, my colleague and friend; as well as a mentor to those students over whom he administrated. Those traits were evident throughout the entire time I worked with him in Freeport.Moreover, I will never forget his propensity for using humor at just the right moment helped bring the High School staff together as one. Marty, you will be missed, but never forgotten -- forever!

A lifelong friend and classmate of Marty at both Cardinal Hayes HS (class of 1952) and Manhattan College (class of 1956). Although not together, we both spent time serving in the Navy and also taught in NYC suburban public schools while raising our large families. Typically, in 1957, Marty spent much time and energy plotting my eventual romance and marriage to my Irish born wife, Ellen. At our wedding, Marty joined us in celebration and certified the success of his planning as a member of our wedding party. Always laughing and joyous in almost everything he embraced, he brought joy to all who knew him. Nice going Marty, a life well lived in every respect and now join Catherine in loving embrace. As one of our friends, George Mahoney, put it, "you are both now part of the Communion of Saints"....where you truly belong. Every blessing to you both and lots of love to your families. Ellen and Dave
