Patrick A. “Al” Kelly, 88, died on February 20, 2017. Born in the Fox Point section of Providence in 1928, he was the son of the late Richard and Mary J. (Brassil) Kelly. He was the loving brother of the late Rev. Raymond M. Kelly, Richard, and Mary J. Kelly. Al was also the devoted stepson of the late Margaret Harrington Kelly, and stepbrother to the late Adelaide O’ Neill, Helen McCormick and Timothy J Harrington.
