Kevin was born in Eufaula, AL to the late William Joseph and Lois Jernigan Kelly.   He graduated from Albany High School in 1967 and graduated from Georgia Southwestern College in 1972 where he played tennis.  Kevin loved and enjoyed playing the game of tennis over the years.  He traveled and played in many tournaments in GA, FL and AL.


During Kevin’s childhood, he loved visiting his grandparent’s house on the farm in Baker Hill, AL.  So many treasured memories with his cousins, aunts and uncles.  Wonderful family reunions were held there over the years.   Kevin also loved traveling to the beach and mountains.  Kevin was the tennis pro at Doublegate Country Club and after retiring, he started American Publications, including FSBO and LaGrange, Thomasville and Americus Apartment Guides.   


In 1983, Kevin’s dream came true when he flew to England for the first time.   Along with his wife, Diane and two special friends, Anne and Rusty Moulton, he attended the Wimbledon Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.  Best trip ever!  He will be greatly missed.
