I am stunned to say the least as I am just now learning of Kelly's passing. He and I spent 3 great year's together as best friends from 16 to 19 yrs of age.We met after a friend was shot on Guess rd and as everyone heard the gunfire we all scattered for the cover of our cars.We didn't know each other but somehow I ended up jumping into his mustang with him and he drove us away as we feared more gunfire. We ended up hanging out until around 6 am that night and countless other nights after.Kelly was truly a one of a kind guy.He was funny,very smart, inquisitive and just a all around great guy and friend.i came to know his family ,Mr and Mrs Dew,Clay ,and a few more family members. We spent many nights out cruising Guess rd,or Benson or wherever we ended up.kelly always had a big smile on his face and made friends wherever we went.People just seemed to like him instantly.I had recently been telling my wife some of our adventures and about Kelly in general and was shocked to learn that my once closest friend was Gone.I was hoping to be able to reconnect with him but that will be after this journey of life is done for me. My deepest condolences to his Family and loved ones,I will see you again one day my friend and we will talk about our exploits.God rest your soul my friend...

I just happened upon Kelly's obituary. I had no idea of his passing! Kelly was so much fun during the days of Guess Road, Durham NC. He was the guy everyone wanted to be around. His personally was bigger than life! He was so special! I am so sorry for the loss of such a sweet soul! Amy (Wright) Gregory

Kelly would bound into the eBay Orchard office with a huge grin that made you really happy to see him. He was always Up and incredibly friendly. I'm very sad for the loss his family, friends and colleagues are experiencing. He seemed like a great guy to work for and with. Susan Schmitt

Talking with Kelly was always a bright spot in my day at the office. Rarely have I met someone one who was so funny, kind, and generally just amazing. We bonded over our love of Terry Pratchett's disc world novels and other great books. He always had this stash of brainteaser puzzles near his desk, and I found them irresistible. I'd try to solve them, and often fail miserably. When I'd finally gave up in defeat he'd take it and with a simple flourish show me how it was done; all the while giving me that wry smile of his. I am heartbroken at his passing, both for those of us who knew him, and for those who will never get the chance, yet I am grateful for knowing him as I did.

First and foremost Kelly lived life well. He was a wonderful man of many interests and talents who embraced everything life offered. I couldn't have asked for a better partner to share my life with. Kelly was fiercely loyal to everyone he cared for and loved very deeply. He was kind, patient, funny, devoted, incredibly smart, curious, happy, generous. He was so full of joy for life... Not a day went by without him telling me he loved me, expressing it with the best hugs ever. Words can not communicate how much I love him and miss him. Thank you for giving me a remarkable 12 years. The outpouring of love from friends and family attest to the impact he made in so many people's lives. Kelly Dew loved me so well I will never need another love again.

I knew Kelly from his days working for US Postal in Raleigh NC. We would often have lunch together with a small group of co-workers; all IT people. I always got the impression Kelly was good at his job and he brought a lot of laughter into our lunch breaks. I'm sorry to hear he passed this way. I also appreciate the memorial posted on this website; it helped me understand how his life developed once he moved out west. It seems he really blossomed out there. Joseph Wallace Chapel Hill, NC

Initially Kelly didn't know me by name and would call me "SHOES!!" for the bright blue and orange StubHub colored Nike's I'd wear into the office. It was just the kind of thing he would do, to make friends with a stranger based on something as weird and quirky as my dorky shoes. Eventually we came to learn we shared a part of our first names and would yell What's up KELLLLY! and Hey KELLY (Anne)!! in the halls. After learning each other's first names, our friendship grew to talking about about poker and STARCRAFT! He would think of the most thoughtful things like sharing the releases of new Blizzard games together. When my day wasn't going too well, all it took was a quick chat with him to remind myself of how lucky and was to be working in such a wonderful place with the most amazing people. He was always a bright spot and the sweetest person that could cheer anyone up at work. He was a reminder to me to live life the fullest with no regrets! Such a warm person that will continue to inspire me, anyone he has ever met, and those that will hear about his legacy. <3 I'll miss you lots man. My heart is out to your beautiful wife and the rest of your dear family. BIG HUGS!!!
