LeRoy ~ Arnold M. Kelly, age 84, of Warsaw Road, passed away Friday (February 12, 2021) at Rochester General Hospital, in the loving presence of his daughter.
He was born August 13, 1936 in Batavia, a son of the late E. Monroe and Hazel Weber Kelly.
Arnold was a 1954 graduate of Batavia High School and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1955. Upon his return to the states from France in 1958, he began working in the purchasing department for the Ruberoid Company in Wheatland.

His family meant the world to him and he loved spending time with them. He enjoyed his grandsons sporting events through the years. He rarely missed a game and kept every baseball from important games recording the stats on the balls.
