William David “Bill” Kelly, Sr. 75, of Charlotte, passed away Monday, June 15, 2020. Born Thursday, February 8, 1945 in Alliance, Ohio, he was the son of the late William Charles and Ethel Grace Farmer Kelly. Bill graduated from Ohio State University in 1967 and went on to receive his MBA from Winthrop University. He married the love of his life in June of 1974, Patricia Buchanan Kelly. Bill worked as a Computer Network Engineer and began his own business, Kelly Systems, in 1984 until 2019. In addition to his passion in technology, Bill was an avid Ohio State football fan - never giving up on his team - and enjoyed traveling and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
