John 'Jack' Kelly

The family of John "Jack" Kelly invites you to join us for a celebration of life service for our father who passed away on March 29, 2020.
The celebration is on Sunday, July 19, 2020, at the BARC (Business, Arts, and Recreation Center), 1012 5th Ave., Windom, MN 56101.
Seating will be from 1-1:30 p.m., and program at 1:30 p.m., followed by an open house, 2-4 p.m. (a time to gather and talk and view memorabilia).
We will practice social distancing at all times - during the service in the seated environments and before and after the service as people gather to talk.
You can find our Dad's obituary on LaCanne Funeral Home website: https://www.lacannefuneralhome.com/obituaries/John-Jack-Kelly?obId=12544284#/celebrationWall
Due to COVID-19, we ask for an RSVP to the BARC if you plan to attend so we can assign you a seat, as the auditorium will only safely seat 200 and another 100 on the gym floor, with social distancing, as we are following state guidelines.
BARC will confirm your reservation and give you your seat assignment. You can do so by either facebook message at BARC Windom, or email barcwindom@windomnet.com or phone 507-831-2375 (RSVP number of people, names, phone number and if you have special needs for seating so that we can accommodate you).
There will be overflow seating in the library and chairs under several tents in the parking lot with the service streamed live to each area. If you forget to RSVP, but would still like to come, we will seat you as space is available.
We totally understand that some people may not be able to attend the service due to health risks. Therefore, we will offer a Facebook live (BARC Facebook live - you will need to "friend" BARC in order to see this) and possibly a YouYube video at a later date.
We strongly encourage you to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer from the stations throughout the BARC. We will assemble memorabilia of our Dads' life with picture boards, awards, etc., in the grassy area by the parking lot. Please follow the social distancing signs and procedures posted as best as possible.
If the Governor changes the COVID policies and, for some reason the event cannot take place, please view BARC Facebook page the day prior to and on the day of the event.
The family requests that any memorials given go to the BARC in Windom or to a memorial of your choice.
Lastly, we will be making a multi media video, so if you would like to share a photo, video or memory whether you will be at the service or not, please send a photo in (jpeg) or (GIF) or (PNG) format, video needs to be (MOV) or (MP4) - videos taken on the iphone will work, and or a written memory (DOC or DOCX or TXT).
Please email them to bigjackkelly@gmail.com by Thursday, July 9, 2020.
If you have any questions, call or text Kimberly Kelly-Sommer 651-587-1636, or email at: bigjackkelly@gmail.com.
Thank you for your support of us as we try to navigate celebrating our Dad's life in these challenging times.
The Kelly Family - Kent, Kimberly, Kerry and Kristi
