Brian Joseph Kelly was 55 years old when he passed away Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023 surrounded by his loving family. Brian was the heart of his big happy family. He helped shape each and every family member. Without ever speaking a word he taught many lessons and spread joy with his big smile and contagious laughter. Brian was blessed to have another family that loved him unconditionally and cared for him at Hunterdon Developmental Center for 46 years. Over the years he enjoyed visits from his siblings, nieces, nephews and friends. For fifteen years Brian attended Camp Fatima of NJ which brought him happiness and joy.

Brian will continue to live on through those who have received the gift of his donated organs.
