Oct 25, 1969 - Sep 27, 2021

Eliot Andrew Kelley, 51, of Gladstone, Mo passed away Monday September 27, 2021 at North Kansas City Hospital.

He was born October 25, 1969 to Gary and May (Bryan) Kelley at Smithville, Mo. The family resided in Camden Point, Mo until 1979 when Gary got a promotion moving the family to Holt's Summit, Mo. They then moved to Peculiar, Mo. where Eliot went to Raymore-Peculiar high school and he worked as a roofer then ran his own roofing company for several years.


He loved the simple life, his family, being his own mechanic working on the family's Chevy vehicles and Harley's with his dad and son. Eliot had a passion for "stuff" and scrapping, so he got to travel all around. He had a friendly smile and kept folks laughing with his devious smirk that kept them on their toes, not knowing what he would do or say next. He had a passion for helping anyone and will be missed by many, especially his loving family.


Eliot was preceded in death by his father, grandparents and uncles Robert S. Bryan and David Hunt. Eliot is survived by his mother, May Kelley; daughter Courtney Kelley: sons Shawn Kelley and Jadon Kelley: stepson Zaniel Maldonado; granddaughters Ella Rose and Kimberley; sister Wendy (William) Wehmeyer; nephew Dustin Wehmeyer; niece Morgan Wehmeyer; extended family and many friends.


Arrangements are pending.  In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting contributions to a charity of your choice or organizations in MO that work with the homeless.
