Gerald George Kelly
George Kelly, 72, of Cullman, passed away on Friday, March 20, 2020 at his residence surrounded by family.
George was a man of strong faith and conviction! He was quick to offer his help without expectation of return. He was a loving father and husband that demonstrated his affection in his daily walk. He possessed the Spiritual Gifts of Wisdom, Understanding and Council, among others, and used these gifts to lift up his family, friends and brothers & sisters in Christ He was a good businessman that always made sure you got a square deal. He loved to work with his tractor and chop wood, but his passions were making music and fishing for whatever was biting that day! He was known to be thrifty and made sure you understood the value of the dollar. He possessed a double helping of humility and never met a stranger. He was loved by those that knew him and he will be missed beyond what can be described in words. We know that he is in a better place now where pain and suffering do not exist. He is certainly in the presence of his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, along with his family and friends that went before him. He has now certainly heard these words from his Heavenly Father: Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant!
Mr. Kelly was preceded in death by his parents: James F. and Susanna C. VanderPutte Kelly; brothers: James Kelly, Robert Kelly and Alva Kelly and sister, MaryAnn Kelly Tuggey.
He is survived by his wife Diann Kelly; daughters: Christina Carolyn (Shane) Chumley and Libby Frances Kelly; son, Jason Michael (Julie) Kelly; grandchildren: Jacob Clark, Marcus Clark, Ben Kelly and Della Kelly; sister, Hedy S. (Charles) L'Hereault; brother, John A. (Sandra) Kelly and a host of nieces and nephews.

What a Great Patriarch for one of the most wonderful families I have ever known. His words of wisdom have worn off and come straight out of the mouth of Jason; roommate, best friend and the voice of reason ( straight from George) I’m So Sorry and I Love you all!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed our 'picking and grinning' sessions and just conversing with a true good man.
