Sincere condolences to his loved ones. I can only imagine the heartache. I remember Kelley’s contagious positive presence. When he walked into a room, he always brought a smile and a great energy. I enjoyed the short time we worked together at Cigna. Heaven just got a really good soul. RIP.

Kelley was one of my best friends at MSU. We were in the Energy Show together and spent 3 months touring across the lower peninsula performing for kids in elementary schools. We spent a lot of time together my junior year at MSU in a few different productions. Kelley was my favorite disco partner, although he once dropped me on the floor, left me there and walked away... We talked about that last time we saw each other. May Kelley rest in peace; may his memory be a blessing to all of us that knew and loved him. My sadness with his family....

I have many fond memories of my cousin Kelley. From family functions to going down to the Detroit Riverfront to watch the fireworks for Independence Day. Kelley would sing to the Queen album with Freddie Mercury. He was such a joy to be around.
I love you Kelley.
You WILL be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Kelley’s passing. I first met Kelley in elementary school. I have fond memories of working on SHS high school plays with Kelley. He was kind, funny and always made me laugh. My condolences to the Crowley family.

Crowley family I am so sorry for your loss! Kelley and I were colleagues at Cigna Global. After he left the assignment in Scotland he came to our office in Wilmington DE. He was my boss and we worked very closely together for many years. He was a force!! I respected him and learned a great deal about operational leadership. He was charitable and kind. We lost touch over the years. I am sorry he is gone, I know he will be missed by many!
I include a picture of Kelley and me in middle, & another Cigna colleague on left Carolina Shau who has also passed sadly. This was taken in early 2000’s possibly when Kelley was heading up the Scotland Service center or just before that but after his assignment in Brazil.
He will be missed!

Kind, generous, intelligent, talented, just a good soul with a big heart . These are only a few of the great qualities Kelley held. He and I had the opportunity to share many life stories with each other over the years. He had great advice. I learned a lot from Kelley. I will cherish those moments .I’m so glad he was able to move back to MI to be with his family . My sincere condolences . With a big hug, Athena

I had the privilege of working for him for a few years. And I got the job because I corrected his grammar! (I'm positive that both of us were card-carrying members of the grammar police!) At any rate, a few things stood out that almost everyone else touches on....his work at CIGNA/CIEB, his love for theater, and you, Colleen. When he talked about his family, he loved talking about you, Colleen. I'm sorry for your loss. Just know that he was always proud of you and loved you like the best friend and sister you were to him.
