Thomas A. Kelly
Whether on the front lines of protecting his country as Special Agent in Charge of the Chicago office of the Secret Service, making time with his grandchildren in all their activities or engaged in rambunctious play with Jonas, Thomas will be forever remembered as a man of integrity, fully committed in his giving to others.
He will be dearly missed by all those he loved and who loved him unequivocally in return.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - Thomas’ family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following
