A Memorial Service Celebrating his life will be held at 1:30pm, Sunday, December 23, 2018, at Millican Baptist Church.

Glenn was born in Houston on March 19, 1950, to William Albert Kelley and Mary Aline Kelley. Glenn proudly served our country in the US Army for fourteen years. He traveled extensively as a soldier and is a veteran of the Vietnam War. He met his wife Susan Jane Torrano just prior to his separation from the military and together they created a home. He enjoyed grilling, smoking ribs and briskets and frying seafood with family and friends. Saturdays in the fall were spent tailgating and yelling for the Aggies. Glenn was a fan of the old western movies especially anything John Wayne. Glenn enjoyed spending time outdoors hunting and fishing as often as possible. He was most at peace while camping with his wife and taking walks in the woods or just sitting silently among the trees. He truly loved his family time, especially during his favorite season of the year, Christmas.

His parents preceded him in death.

Surviving Glenn are his wife, Susan Kelley; his sons Charles and wife Gina Bates, of Houston, Michael and wife Monica Kelley, of Reagan, TX; his daughters Glenda and husband Andrew Taylor, of San Leon, Texas, Janet Walker, of Big Spring, Texas, Carrie and husband Matt Halpain, of Bryan, Beverly and husband Raul Lara, of Bryan; his siblings; eleven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Glenn’s name to Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation.


  1. Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your loved one.
    At a sad time as this, the Bible gives us comfort at Revelation 21:3,4 where God promises to eliminate sickness, sorrow and death. What a wonderful time when we no longer have to face these enemies.
    I hope this scripture gives you some consolation.

  2. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of William. May the cherished memories you have help sustain you. May your family be comforted by keeping in mind Jesus promise of the hope of everlasting life on earth recorded at John 17:3.

  3. We were so saddened to learn that Mr. Kelley (we always called him by this) had passed away. He was a kind and caring person who was always willing to help find solutions for our home’s problems. We enjoyed his company – he was a friend who we will miss.
    His family is in our prayers – God Bless You

  4. Glen was my friend and I could always call on him for help. He was there for me and that was very comforting since I am a widow. I knew I could count on him to come running when I had a problem that I couldn’t fix. He always had a smile and loved to talk. I was so saddened when I heard of his death. I will really miss him. To the family, my heart breaks for you. God bless you all. You will be in my prayers.
