Celebrating the life of

David Keith Kelley

August 09, 1951 - January 17, 2022

David Keith Kelley

David Keith Kelley, 70, died peacefully January 17, 2022, following a brief illness.  David was born in Syracuse, New York, but grew up in Savannah.   After graduating from Savannah Country Day School he attended Armstrong State College, achieving a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1987.

David retired from Lowe’s Home Improvement in 2013, but he was known primarily for his big heart and his ministry to the less fortunate.  After retirement David worked as a musician and minister with the Community of St. Joseph, an outreach of the Episcopal Church to the homeless in Savannah.

David was a loving husband to his wife of twenty-six years, Elizabeth Lynn Kelley; a devoted father to his sons, David Nathaniel, 24, of Savannah, and Christopher Benjamin, 18, of Savannah.  Additionally, he was a faithful brother to his sister, Cynthia Jean Kelley, and brother, Dwight Mason Kelley.

We will miss David’s offbeat sense of humor and corny puns as well as his love for the needy of the world.  We hope that his life will be an inspiration to his family and friends to continue his commitment to the homeless and his passion for Jesus.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, January 28, 2022 at 11:00 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations in David’s memory to the Community of St. Joseph at this address: The Community of St. Joseph,℅ Episcopal Diocese of Georgia, 18 E. 34th Street, Savannah, GA  31401.




David was always so patient in matters of the spirit. We will miss him.
