EDWARD MICHAEL KELLY ’39
Edward Michael Kelly ’39 of San Jose died on May 1. Honored with SCU’s Ignatian Award in 1992, he worked as a volunteer with the Athletic Department at SCU as the manager of ticket operations from 1981 to his last day. He credited his time with athletics for keeping him young. Due to his passion for the sport of tennis, he formed the Edward M. and Muriel E. Kelly Endowed Scholarship Fund to assist SCU tennis athletes, and he threw out the first tennis ball at the opening of the Degheri Tennis Center. Kelly was born and raised in Salinas and served in the Army Air Corps during WWII as a staff sergeant in the finance department. He was employed by Pacific Gas & Electric for 42 years, retiring in 1981 as the manager of general services in San Jose; his concurrent service to the Salinas Rodeo spanned nearly 60 years.
