Obituary

Lee Raymond Kelly was born in Los Angeles on September 24,1927. He was the only child born of Thelma Jesse and Raymond (Hobart) Kelly. His father died when he was young, and he spent most of his growing up with his mother. Early education- attendance at various schools in Los Angeles and later attended Long Beach City College. At seventeen, he enlisted in the US Navy and spent time at sea from 1945-1946. It was during this time he met and married his first wife Doris (Thomas) Kelly, and together they raised a family of five children. The family attended regularly at Saint Josephs Catholic Church.

Work: He supported his lively bunch in the field of electronics, first working for RCA TV, where he was a pioneering engineer in the field of color TV. He moved the family from Long beach to Anaheim where he worked for Interstate Electronics Corp. Later, he moved up in the company to work as a contractor for the Warfare Division serving his country yet again in the fields of missile and military surveillance for the US Army and Navy.
His avid hobbies included flying single engine planes, and working on classic cars in the garage(One of his cars was sold to a museum for American cars in Germany). His passion for old cars led him to a life-long membership with the Forties Limited of Orange County Car Club. About this time, he found his sweet heart Barbara Kelly, and they were married for 27 years.They moved to Twin Falls Idaho in 1990. In his new life, he became active in the Magic Valley Ham Radio Club. His FCC call sign was K6ZVA. He was again involved with his community by being instrumental in getting remote TV systems to Mount Harrison. He also volunteered in Homeland Security. He built an E com trailer that Boise Radio Amateur EMS used for EMS services.

He is survived by four children: Tina Fuhrer, who resides in Germany, Karen Floyd, Mike Kelly & Steven Kelly, who all live in California, and of course, his beloved dog ‘Misty.’

He is preceded in death by Barbara( Bobbie) Kelly, and Rosalyn Rae Tillberry,

The family would like to thank Visions Home Health and Hospice Care for the excellent care provided for Lee. His mantle was “Prosperous and productive”!
