Charles Stewart Kelly, 72, of Onancock, VA, passed away on Saturday, July 1, 2023, at his home.
He was born in Nassawadox, VA, the oldest son of the late Charles Leonard Kelly and Nola White Kelly.
Charles graduated from Onancock High School in 1968. After high school, he joined the Army and got his bachelor’s degree in computer science. His favorite pastime was programming computers. He would often spend hours and hours in front of the computer.
In later years, he became the Onancock harbormaster, until his health began to fail.
He would cheer each week for his Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was a serious football fan and would play online fantasy sports, including soccer. Charles was a serious man and encouraged others to engage in the study of politics. He took the time to learn about his lineage. He loved researching his genealogy with his nephew. History was engaging and he soaked up every tidbit that he could come across. He will be remembered as a highly intelligent person.
He is survived by his brother, Harry Kelly of Parksley; niece, Leesa Kelly of Greenbackville; nephew, Jason Kelly of Temperanceville; and four great-nieces and great-nephews.
Charles was predeceased by his parents and two younger brothers, Michael Kelly and Stephen Kelly.
Per his request, there will be no public service.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in his memory to the National Kidney Foundation, 30 East 33rd Street, New York, NY 10016-5337.
