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!!!
