Kelly was born on June 12, 1964, in Peoria, a son of Roger and Shirley (Summers) Davis. On Valentine's Day in 1989, he met the love of his life, Mary Arrowood. Truly a soulmate, they married on April 26th,1996, in Peoria. She survives.

He is also survived by many family and friends, who considered him a brother and mentor.
Kelly was preceded in death by his mother; his paternal grandparents; and his maternal grandparents, who were very important influences in his life.
He was a jack of all trades. He was a handyman and he could fix anything. Whenever someone would call him, he was always willing to help fix whatever they needed. No matter what the problem was, from computers to cars, he could "figure it out" is what he liked to say. He was very honest and said what was on his mind. His opinions will truly be missed by so many.
