Paul Eric Kelley

November 5, 1960 — September 4, 2023


Paul Eric Kelley, 62 known fondly as Paw Paw to his grandchildren, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Kalamazoo, MI. Paul was born and raised in Norton Shores, Michigan. He was a proud Mona Shores PS Graduate, retired brick craftsman, beloved brother, loving father and grandfather. Paul was a self-taught guitarist; avid bibliophile who loved a good story, campfires, and playing cards. He is preceded in death by his parents Richard and Helen (Kordecki), one brother James and two sisters, Mary (Owczarzak) and Rebecca (Valk). Survivors include daughters Erica and Melanie; three granddaughters, Kayleigh, Isabella, and Maleah; one grandson, Christopher; brothers, Richard, Patrick, John and Nick; one sister Debra (Cox). A celebration of life for Paul will be held on his birthday, Sunday November 5, 2023 at Pomorskis Tavern in Ludington, Michigan. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations  to the Community Healing Center. Paul had a kind, generous heart, strong work ethic and abiding love for his family. He will be dearly missed. “Beyond the door there’s peace I’m sure and I know there’ll be no more tears in Heaven.”
