Robert N Kelly

October 9, 1928 — July 16, 2020

Robert N. Kelly, 91, of Gorham, passed away at St. Vincent De Paul Nursing Home in Berlin on Thursday July 16, 2020. He was born in Berlin, NH on October 9, 1928 to Henry and Emma (Nolet) Kelly. He attended Catholic schools in Berlin and joined the US Navy in 1946.

Robert received an honorable discharge from the Navy in 1948 and reconnected with Lorraine Gauthier whom he knew in school. The couple married on July 2, 1951 at St. Benedicts Catholic Church in Cascade. Robert went to work in the mills and the couple raised two children. He retired in 1991.

Robert was an avid outdoorsman; he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time in the woods. He enjoyed tending to his vegetable garden, and later in life took up woodworking. His greatest joy was spending time with family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his son Dennis Kelly and his wife Susan of Manchester, daughter Debra Kelly-Girard and her husband Ronald of Milan, three grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and several nieces, nephews and close friends.
