When I have more information, I will be sure to share it with you. He was predeceased by his wife, Genevieve, in the year 1977; his granddaughters Kelly and Heather; and his sister, Helen Montague; all of whom passed away in 1989. In New Albin, Iowa, on July 3, 1914, Leo J. Kelly was brought into the world by his parents, John and Rose (Morgan) Kelly. After earning a degree in Dairy Management from Iowa State University and serving in the Navy during World War II from March 1942 through December 1945, Leo was a veteran of the conflict. On December 4, 1943, he wed Genevieve Drew, and the couple went on to have eight children together.
Between the years 1950 and 1957, Leo managed creameries in addition to owning and operating a bowling alley in New Hampton, Iowa. After selling the bowling alley in 1957, he worked as the manager of the creamery in Nashua, Iowa from that year until 1977. In 1958, he moved his family to Charles City. Once the Nashua Creamery was put out of business in 1977, Leo went to work for Farm-a-Con as a member of the sales management team. Upon his retirement, he worked as chief cook and bottle washer at All-States and then at his sons’ company, Circle Computer Resources, in Cedar Rapids. He did this work until the spring of 2005.
