Daniel was born to Missionary Dr. William Kelly and his wife Nurse MuYi Kelly in China. He struggled through half of his life in captivity and political repression in Communist China. With the surviving love of his life Flora and their 3 children Lillian (Andrew Fitzgerald), Judith (Chon Martinez) and John (Beth Kelly) they made a life here in central Indiana since emigrating in 1979.

Daniel Kelly will always be remembered as a man of intellect, a solitary man, an American Patriot, a man who practiced what he preached: with malice towards none, dutiful respect and charity to all, with firmness in what is right, his achievements were enormous when considering the obstacles in his way. Your family will remember you, and history will remember you!!
