Thomas "Danny" Daniel Kelley

of Perryville, AR

June 18, 1949 - February 10, 2024

Thomas Daniel ''Danny'' Kelley, 74, of Perryville went to be with the Lord on February 10, 2024 after a long hard-fought battle with an illness which he never let define him.

Tom was born on June 18, 1949 in Logansport, Indiana to Rosemary Downing Kelley and Thomas Duffy Kelley and always fashioned himself to be an Irishman. He graduated from Catholic High and went on to receive a business degree from UALR. From there he went to work for the United States Postal Service. He held many different positions with the post office with the final being in management for Express Mail from which he retired.

Tom was kind and enjoyed talking and listening to others. He loved hiking, yard work, cooking and reading. He loved going to the movies, parks, fishing, gardening, watching football and the horse races. He had a wonderful smile and loved to tease and kid.

Tom is preceded in death by his parents and his sister and brother-in-law Jack and Nancy Perciful.

He is survived by his loving wife, Carla Boshears Kelley; his son, Thomas Kelley; daughter, Charly (Kelly) Lidzy; sister, Rose (Bill) Cranford and a host of other dear family members and friends.

He is also survived by his grandson, Shelby. Tom was most proud of his newest role as ''Paw'' to Shelby and in their short time together many sweet and precious memories were made.

When able, Tom attended the Perryville United Methodist Church and enjoyed helping with a Sunday School Class at the nursing home before the start of the pandemic.

Tom was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, Paw, son-in-law, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and friend. He was dear to so many people.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 11:00 AM at the Perryville United Methodist Church. The family will greet friends at a reception afterwards in the Connection Center.

The family would like to thank the staff at the UAMS Hematology/Oncology Clinic and Infusion A center.
