Kelly Burl Kennedy

December 23, 1966 — November 20, 2020

Kelly was called Home after battling multiple illnesses on Friday, November 20, 2020.  He will be sorely missed by family and friends—gone but never forgotten.  He is preceded in death by his parents Sophie Long and Rodney Kennedy and his nephew Brandon Alexander Boudoin.  He is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Brian and Wanda Boudoin-Yates, Brooke Noel Boudoin (niece), and Helen McGrath (sister) and several cousin, aunts, and uncles.

Kelly was a strong-willed man who lived his life on his terms. He wasn’t shy about speaking his mind and saw the precision of Life. He loved working with his second family at O’Rielly’s Auto Parts. He was a good cook who enjoyed making semi-sugar-free desserts and his specialty was cornbread dressing.  He was an avid movie and music buff with a massive collection of movies and CDs of multiple genres in his collections.  He had a passion for cars and as he would say, “I get really geeky when it comes down to how the process works”.  He loved music and until his stroke enjoyed playing his electric guitars.

He worked in a variety of fields throughout his life as a roustabout, welder’s helper, crane operator, and commercial sales manager for automotive parts.  He was a straightforwardly, good man.

A Memorial visitation will be held Tuesday, December 8, 2020 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Twin City Funeral Home. Kelly will be laid to rest in the Morgan City cemetery with family in a private service at a later date.

Twin City Funeral Home in Morgan City will handle arrangements.
