Paul Daniel Kelly
26 June 1897 - 30 May 1946
He died 64 years ago today in Portland, Oregon. He was crossing a street shortly before midnight when struck by a car. The accident was front page news in Portland the next day. Until a few weeks ago, all I knew was that he had been killed in a car accident in Oregon in the 1940s.
Just this week, I finally found a funeral notice in the Oregonian newspaper which indicated he was buried at Mount Calvary cemetery in Portland.
Two weeks ago, my sentimental Sunday tribute was to Paul's wife, Elsie Stambaugh Kelly, who returned to Nebraska some time after Paul's death.
How can you not love those ties!
