1959 - 2017

Robert J. Kelly, Jr., 58, of Stone Street, Watertown, died December 19, 2017, at his home after a difficult and well fought battle against ALS.

Bob was born on July 2, 1959, in Watertown, son of Robert J and Dorothy H. (Jobson) Kelly Sr. From 1979 until 1983 he served in the United States Army, receiving an honorable discharge. On April 17, 1994 he married Judee K. Wiertalla in Brownville, NY. Bob worked most of his adult life as a skilled flooring and carpet installer, earning respect in his chosen field for over 35 years. Bob loved his family, his friends, and all animals- especially his dogs. He enjoyed listening to music, playing billiards, telling jokes, fishing, and many outdoor activities.

Surviving besides his wife Judee are a daughter Laura Rachel (Keith) Baughman, Canandaigua, three grandchildren Megan, Jasmine, and Cameron, three brothers Terry (Gayelynn) Babyak, Dexter, Allen (Andria) Capone, Watertown, Matthew (Becky) Capone, Watertown, three sisters Stacey (Paul) Mack, Watertown, and their daughter, Bob's first born niece, Michelle Kelly, Catherine Cunningham, Watertown, Julie Capone, Watertown, and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Bob's family will be holding a private graveside ceremony at a later date. Arrangements are with the
D. L. Calarco Funeral Home, Inc. Contributions may be made to the ALS Association, 1275 K Street NW, Suite 250, Washington, DC 20005 or to the Jefferson County SPCA, 25056 Water Street, Watertown, NY 13601. Condolences may be made to www.dlcalarco.com.
