Charles J. Kelly, ”Corky” as he was well known as, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday February 6, 2018 at St. Luke’s Hospital in Newburgh. He was 47. The son of the late Charles E.

He was a member of the American Legion Post 1308, Catholic War Veterans and The Church of the Infant Saviour Church. He also gained the rank of Eagle Scout. Corky was an avid walker and exercise was his number one priority. On any given day, rain or shine, you would see him walking. He was proud of all the miles he had traveled, and he had just reached a 2,000 mile mark last month. Family was first and he was proud to be a Kelly. Corky had an infectious smile, was the kindest soul you could meet, and always made time to talk to anyone. A real fun, loving caring guy and loved employee of the Sunset in New Windsor. The community will never be the same without him. Corky, you were a true Gentleman and good friend to us all.
