William John Kelley II

William John Kelley II, 53, of Tuftonboro, NH, formerly of Stoneham, MA, passed away on Sunday, October 9, 2022 after a courageous battle with advanced melanoma.

Billy was born on March 16, 1969 in Winchester, MA to his loving parents, Anita and the late Bill Kelley of Middleton, MA. He was a 1987 graduate of Stoneham High School. Billy later pursued a career in independent contracting where he showcased his amazing craftsmanship and love for finished carpentry. He always possessed and displayed a strong work ethic.

Growing up Billy enjoyed playing hockey and shared many good times with friends. He had no shortage of funny stories. Billy loved listening to music, spending time outdoors by the water, and enjoying home cooked meals.  Billy always appreciated time with close friends and most of all his companionship with his beloved dog, Mick.

Billy was quite charming.  If you were one of his many friends he considered "good people", then you knew he held you in his highest regard!  Billy had a big heart and would share whatever he had with those he loved.  Billy will be greatly missed by all.

In addition to his mom, Anita, Billy leaves behind his three sisters, Lori Arienti and her husband, Tim of Arundel, ME. Linette Walsh and her husband, Kevin of Reading, MA, and Kristen Kelley-Hartz and her husband, Paul of Wakefield MA. Billy was also a cherished uncle to Tyler Walsh, Michaela Hartz, Brenden Walsh, and the late Casey Kelley Walsh.
