  1. a trip to boat trip to Block Island that was turned into a Nor Easter for 5 days or more… Deborah and Dorren kept the ships log and recorded a potential fate that included our being lost at sea.. needless to say we made it back to Cedar beach and a drink (or two)

  2. I have so many memories of Bobby, all with so many laughs and good times! I remember being at Cove Haven with our crazy group and Bobby and I were in the indoor pool and the bartender was giving us frozen White Russians! I turned to him at one point and said “ Bobby, I don’t think I can make it out of this pool!!”
    Always a smile, always good memories with him and Debbie!
    Debbie and the girls, my heart aches for you all, I am so sorry for this loss that you have to endure. May the memories you hold in your heart get you through the tough times.
    Love you,
    Linda Hartig

  14. Jen, Debbie, Family… as you know, Bob Kelly lived life with vigor and passion. He loved his family and he loved his friends. He held strong convictions and defended his opinions with enthusiasm. Though he left Brooklyn years ago, Brooklyn never quite left him. He possessed the street smarts of a selfless survivor who ultimately prospered in the ‘ promised land ‘ of Long Island by wisely choosing the best interest of family first., aways. May he Rest In Peace in the Glory of God’s Eternal Presence, now and forever.

  16. Debbie and Family, I am sorry for your loss.
    Bob was an important part of many lives. Including mine. It is hard for me to remember the first time we met. But it was in our early years in St. Thomas.
    We became close friends in our youth, played football on the same team. Were together most of the year and at each others house regularly. But when school was out for the summer he was heading out to Sound Beach until September.
    I was one of many people that had the privilege of knowing Bob Kelly as a person and friend.Something I am grateful for.
    Thank you Bob Kelly and God Bless.
    AgainDebbie, sorry for your loss. He was a Good Man.

    I thank God that we had this time to share all the fun, laughter and deep friendship.

    Bobby left a hole in our hearts but he is in Fishing Heaven and he will always be in our hearts and prayers.
    Much love to you sister, Deb and your wonderful loving daughters.

  18. candleI knew Bobby since I was 12 years old. He loved fast cars and being on the water, fishing and boating.
