Larry Kelly

Larry Leon Kelly, age 79, of Spring Hill, passed away October 10, 2021. He was born in Chicago, IL to Raymond and Ina Kelly on June 1, 1942. He was drafted into the US Army during the Vietnam era but was sent to Santa Domingo to aid forces during the Dominican Civil War. In 1974, he relocated his family to Florida where he established, owned, and operated Sun Country Tile for many years before retiring.

Larry was a good-hearted man who would give you the shirt off his back and thank you for taking it. He was fun-loving, witty, and game for anything. He adored his family, especially his grandchildren whom he purposely spoiled and did his best to teach everything he could to. He loved spending time outdoors on his property and was an avid deer hunter.

Larry is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Judith Kelly; their son, Bryon Kelly and wife Bethany of Clarksville, TN; their daughter, Crystal Kelly Wescoat and husband Todd of Holiday, FL; and his grandchildren: Lauren & Vanessa Kelly and Casey & Cameron Wescoat. He is preceded in death by his parents and his siblings: Jerry, Jimmy, and Tammy.

Larry will be placed at Florida National Cemetery at a later date.

    Larry took me hunting in Missouri and instead of shooting the biggest buck that anyone had seen up there in years he let me take it down one of the best times in my life

    Mr. Larry insisted he was grilling and feeding me a hamburger. A lie of course to get me to eat it because it was really deer. I was just a kid so at that time I wouldn’t have gone for it. Larry was dad to one of my besties, Crystal, growing up and was an awesome dad and hubby.

    I was on my first deer hunt in Northern Wisconsin, I was only 12 my dad said I could go back behind the camper an sit. I shot a great big doe. Larry heard me shoot an came over by me. I told him where the camper was but he didn't believe me. He was older so I went with his thinking.we ended up dragging it a half mile in the wrong direction before we came out a road. Last time I listened to him.
