Obituary for Brooks Kelley

Loye Brooks Kelley, 69, passed away peacefully at his home in Calhoun City on Thursday, December 20, 2018. Born April 20, 1949 in Pontotoc County, he was the son of the late Clyde Kelley and the late Burma “Brandon” Kelley. Brooks was of Baptist faith, and a 1969 graduate of Hurricane High School in Pontotoc County. In high school he loved playing basketball, and was known to be hard to handle on the court. He and his wife, Jean, were married on February 14, 1975. Brooks was a hard worker. Working as a crane operator with Anslow / Bryant, he would often be away from home on the job, but taking care of his family was his top priority. He retired in 2016 after many years of service. He enjoyed getting together with friends and family, and especially loved a good episode of “The Three Stooges.” His loss was sudden, and his family is grieving, but his memory will be cherished forever in their hearts, and they find some comfort in knowing they will be reunited one day.
Pryor Funeral Home is honored to be serving the Kelley family.
A funeral service celebrating his life will be held Saturday, December 22, 2018, at 2:00pm at Pryor Funeral Home. There will also be a visitation on Friday, December 21, 2018 from 5:00pm until 7:00pm at the funeral home. Bro. Carl Morris will be officiating. Interment will follow at Crossroads Cemetery.
Serving as pallbearers will be John Hitt, Travis Scott, C.J. White, Randle Kelley, J.J. Hitt, and Seth Scott.
He leaves behind his wife of 43 years, Jean Crutchfield Kelley; two sons, Charles (Darlene) White of Bruce, and Michael (Alysha) Kelley of Houston, TX; two daughters, Stephanie (John) Hitt and Natasha (Travis) Scott, both of Calhoun City; a sister, Deloris (Hub) Swords of Southaven; nine grandchildren, J.J. Hitt, C.J. White, Randle Kelley, Seth Scott, Gabriel Scott, Jordyn Scott, Brooks Scott Kelley, Jamie Duke, and B.J.
