Obituary of Daniel Allen Kelley

Daniel Allen Kelley was born on December 26, 1959 in Trenton, Michigan.   He was truly a Christmas blessing from above.  Faith was a big part of life for the Kelley family and they were members of the Lutheran community.  

Danny followed a strict routine each day.   You could set your watch by him.   He spent many hours during the day enjoying the competitions on the Game Show network.   Danny also enjoyed listening to “oldies” music.   A gentle, kind, and caring soul, he was always happy to see a familiar face, and greeted everyone with a smile.
