Obituary

Peter Patrick George Kelly III passed unexpectedly and way too soon on October 4, 2021, at the age of 54 in Pompano Beach, FL, where he lived.

Pete is lovingly survived by his four children Morgan, Austin, Christine and Madison; his mother Carol Coffey; his brothers Stephen Kelly and Tommy Giammateo; his sister and brother in-law Jackie and Ted Chin; his three grandchildren Darrah, Charlotte and Matthew; his stepmother Kathleen Kelly; and four nieces and two nephews.

Also known as Re-Pete, he is predeceased by his father Peter Patrick George Kelly, Jr.; his stepmother Sha Kelly; and this past year by his beloved grandparents Doris and Henry Berben.

Pete was born in Albany, NY, on 7-6-67, an easy date to remember he would always say. He graduated from Guilderland High School, tested out of the Automotive Program at Hudson Valley Community College, and went on to be a mechanic.

An avid lover of baseball and a passionate Yankee fan, he attended two World Series playoff games on the same day! (SF Giants and Oakland A’s)

Pete had a great sense of humor combined with a strong work ethic and passion for helping others. He was a master at building and fixing just about anything, and had a successful career at the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 106, keeping the heavy machinery going and the witty one-liners flowing.

His life took a turn following an injury on the job and alcohol addiction, which he struggled with for years. In the end, it took him. He will be missed for all that he was, and for all that he could have been.

 

If you or a loved one is struggling with alcohol addiction, there is free and confidential help available. Visit samhsa.gov or call 1-800-662-HELP today.

 

Pete will be remembered for his great storytelling, his generosity, and the tremendous love that he had for his four children.
