Obituary

ORRINGTON – Walter J. Kelley, 81, died June 30, 2020, at his home with his daughter, Amy, by his side, after a short battle with bone cancer. He was born July 21, 1938 in Richmond, the son of Lloyd B. and Faith (Holt) Kelley.

Walter attended Bangor schools. Walter served in the U.S. Army in Korea with the 8th Cavalry 1st Cavalry Division and the 5th Infantry Division at Fort Carson, Colorado. After returning from Korea, Walter went to work for Eastern Fine Paper as a member of the United Steel Workers Union where he retired after 40 years of service.
Walter enjoyed politics, sports, and gardening. He was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, Celtics, and Patriots. In the summer Walter always had a lush and full vegetable garden. Walter also loved living on Brewer Lake with Amy and Lance. He enjoyed watching the birds on his feeders as well as all the activity on the lake. He stated, “This is right where I want to be.”

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sisters, Elizabeth Lowden, and Hazel M. Hart. He is survived by his daughter, Amy M. Lord and husband, Lance of Orrington; his sister, Charlotte Burrill and husband, John of Trenton; step-children, Elisa Dunfee of Brewer, Billy Sealy of Bangor, Cheryl Palman of Belgrade, and Deborah Speirs of Bangor; along with their spouses, children and grandchildren.

Relatives and friends are welcome to a celebration of life 1-4 p.m., Sunday, July 12, 2020, at Jeff’s Catering, 15 Littlefield Road, Brewer.
