Richard H. Kelley

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Scott Self on February 24, 2013:

Rich was my roommate the first detail of plebe year. He was the same guy the entire 4 years we were there. He never left a task unfinished and it was always done to the best of his ability. He also had time to help his classmates. He put his classmates ahead of himself most all the time. He truly served with integrity, but did it in his own way. Rich leaves a legacy of being himself, but being a true good human being. There was no one quite like him.

See you later Ping. We all miss you.
