February 13, 1957 - May 11, 2015

Patrick Kelly, a fellow NACHI Chicagoland Member and founding Secretary / Treasurer of the chapter passed away on Monday.

Pat was always a happy, but dedicated, guy and served his fellow InterNACHI members well. He will be greatly missed. Patrick Xavier Kelley, age 58, of St. Charles was received into the arms of Christ on Monday, May 11, 2015, at Delnor Hospital of Geneva. His emotional heart became too big for his physical heart to handle, so he became an angel to watch over his family. Patrick was born February 13, 1957, in Elmhurst, IL. to Francis Xavier and Sue Whelan Kelley. Patrick attended St. Domitilla Elementary School in Hillside, Wawasee Prep in Syracuse, Indiana, and graduated from Immaculate Conception High School in Elmhurst. He attended St. Leo College in Florida and took classes at Triton College in River Grove.

Patrick worked for the Kelley family business, Allied Drywall Services (20 years), Co-facilitator of Kelley Kids Home Childcare, and also provided Home Remodeling and Repair (12 years), and most recently was the Owner-operator of P.X. Inspects Home Inspection Services (10 years). Patrick is survived by his childhood sweetheart and wife of 37 years, Catherine; three cherished adult children, Lisa (DJ) Hird of Rolling Meadows, Cindy (Fianc Adam Snider) of St. Charles, and Greg of St. Charles; three brothers, Vince (Jackie), Mike (Kate), and Dan (Mary); four sisters, Sheila (John) Smock, Ann (Eric) Hanada, Susie (Marty) Bergerson, and Mary Francis "Muffie" (Lou) LeMieux; his father-in-law, Bert Wisbrock; two brothers-in-law, Raymond (Jeanne) Wisbrock and Mark (Mary) Wisbrock; and a sister-in-law, Lynne (John) Schneegas. Beloved uncle to many. Treasured friend to all.
