Kelly will be missed by all on the island. He was never too busy to shut down the lawn tractor and have a chat, and was always there to lend a hand. Rest well my friend.

Donna and family- was so sorry to hear of Kelly’s passing! He was always a great help with Ryan and Myself while working the Ferry! His influence got Ryan into sailing ,and he has made a career of it! I will never forget the fall and spring Ferry work and Kelly always having hot coffee ready for me, and trying to convince me to a game of cribbage! Rest in Peace Kelly! Bob and Ryan Goodearle!

Grandpa, May you rest in peace. I will always cherish the fond memories I have with you. From being pushed in the little green wagon, to you calling Andrew and I into the shed for a little treat that you would always have hidden away. You taught us how to fish and were so patient. Your smile and laugh will forever stay in my heart. I will think of you often. I love you Grandpa xox
