Brother Kelly was a retired Detective for the New York City Police Department & an Analyst for the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration.Here are a few words from Brother Kelly’s Lifetime Membership Application:
“Sharing my knowledge of the AOH Constitution and By-Laws with new members of our respective Division and County. Imparting the history of the Irish and the Irish American People and the contributions they made over many centuries as immigrants, their hardships, rejections and sufferings. And, of course, on a positive note, the many accomplishments they contributed to their adopted country…I enjoyed every minute of it.”
Please keep Jim Kelly, his wife Breda and his children, William and Maria and their families in your prayers.
May St. Patrick guard you
wherever you go,
and guide you in whatever you do–
and may his loving protection
be a blessing to you always.
Joseph Duelk Jr. AOH Division 1
