Timothy “Tim” J. Kelley, age 69, of Minneapolis. Tim died unexpectedly at home on May 16, 2021. He was born on January 24, 1952, to John “Raymond” and Lucille Kelley in Minneapolis. Tim is survived by his siblings, Catherine Kelley (Vicki Glasgow), Eileen Kelley Dyrhaug (John) and David Kelley. He was preceded in death by parents. Tim worked at Questar until 2013 and the Star Tribune until June 2020. He had many circles of family, friends, and coworkers. We suggest gathering together in your circle to celebrate Tim.

    Condolences to Tim’s family.

    I will miss his wry Irish wit and smiling eyes, as will all of us fortunate enough to chase golf balls with him.
    “And if my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy”.

  3. Mark Churchill says:

    I will miss you Tim ! I’ll see ya on the other side, save me a good seat buddy

  4. Patrick Sheehan says:

    Tim’s absense shall be keenly felt. I worked with Tim at Questar. As a side note I actually hired Tim for Questar. He was a joy to work with.
