Father Kelly was en route to the funeral of another priest, when he stopped on to remove a fallen tree blocking the road. While doing so, another tree fell, struck him and apparently killed him instantly.
In addition, I would like to also offer my condolences to his brother priests and the parishioners at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Purcellville, VA.
May eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.
