Obituary for Tim Kelly

Best friend to his wife, Judy.
Hero to his children, Chad (Charlene), Cory, Allison (Patrick), Mollie.
Superhero to his grandchildren, Evan, Ella, Quinn.
A teacher to the community and all those around him.
An incomparable fighter through a brief illness, he was surrounded by his family in unconditional love as he left this world. He had the courage to join his granddaughter, Grace.

Tim was born in Grand Forks, ND, to Howard and Cleo Kelly. He filled his family’s home in East Grand Forks with an adventurous and inquisitive spirit, which continued on throughout his life.

He was a man of many talents and passions, and ultimately found a vocation in teaching. He was a science teacher for 35 years, and spent much of his career at Shakopee High School. He gave his students a classroom full of wonder.

Spending hours with his hands in the earth was how he showed his vast love for nature, and he always paused to gaze in wonder at the nighttime sky. He was a voracious reader of all types of literature and had an unquenchable curiosity about the world. He was also a conspirator in his dog’s quest to just have fun.


Tim is survived by his wife, Judy; children, Chad (Charlene) Muesing, Cory Muesing, Allison (Patrick) McCarthy, Mollie Kelly; grandchildren, Evan Muesing, Ella Muesing, Quinn McCarthy; siblings, William (Pat) Kelly, Karen Corbid, Colleen (Dr. Ken) Breker, Keith Kelly, John Kelly; sisters-in-law, Carol Kramer, Lindy Carda, Lou Ryan, Barbara Kramer, Mary Ann (John) Goihl, Marlys (Dave) Determan, Joann (John) Hutchison, Colleen (Brett) Johnson; brothers-in-law, Douglas (Phyllis) Kramer, Robert Kramer, Mike (Rhonda) Kramer; special family, Muesings and Bodes; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by his granddaughter, Grace Kelly McCarthy; parents, Howard and Cleo; mother and father-in-law, Frank and Lucy Kramer; sister-in-law, Delores Kramer; brothers-in-law, Ben Corbid, Eugene Kramer, Stan Carda, Jim Ryan, Francis Kramer; nephews, Justin, Dan and Scott Kramer.


In lieu of flowers or memorials, please honor Tim’s memory by doing a generous action for others, such as donating to your local food shelf, the nonprofit agency Hearts and Hands of MN, the Science Department at Shakopee High School, or any other kind gesture you feel fit.
