Sean R. Kelly

September 17, 1994 — April 20, 2023


DUDLEY – Sean R. Kelly, 28, of Barry Avenue, died on Thursday, April 20, 2023, at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, from complications of a stroke.  He is survived by his parents, Raymond L. Kelly III of Dudley, and Susan J. (Mitrano) Kelly of Marietta, GA; his maternal grandparents, Daniel and Jane Mitrano of Hampton, NH; and his aunt, April Whitney of Auburn, ME.  He was predeceased by two brothers, Bryan D. Kelly who died in 2011, and Brendan J. Kelly who died in 2021; and his paternal grandparents, Raymond and Alice Kelly.  He was born in Framingham and lived most of his life in Dudley and Charlton.  He graduated from Shepherd Hill High School in 2013.

Sean recently started working at The Transformation Center in Worcester as a counselor, giving back to those he truly understood.  Previously, he worked as an academic tutor at Quinsigamond Community College in Worcester and worked at U-Haul in Northborough.

Sean possessed an abundance of empathy for others as exhibited by his sweet and quiet mannerisms. At the core he was gentle, thoughtful, softspoken and warm-hearted. 

Sean had an affinity for animals and doted on his own dog Mya and his brother Brendan’s dog Daisy, taking them on frequent trips to the Webster and Putnam dog parks. He often exclaimed, “Most dogs are better than most people”.

Sean could share a tremendous amount of knowledge regarding world events. He held a natural thirst for knowledge and proactively researched many topics from automotive tech to science to world politics. Sean built several high-end computers, did much of his own car work and studied mechanical engineering.

As an organ donor he made one final grand gesture helping three others in need continue their lives. A truly selfless act which his family is very proud of.  Sean possessed boundless empathy and it flowed outward from his heart and into every living soul around him.
