<div itemprop="description">KELLY, Dominick &lsquo;Dan&rsquo; Peter Francis <br />Age 52, Stouffville, died at home from complications related to Diabetes on Thursday, July 30, 2015. Born in Newmarket, Ontario, he was the son of the late Patrick and the late Yvonne Kelly (nee Irwin). Dan&rsquo;s love of hard work, though modeled to him by his parents, really took hold when he started spending time on his Uncle Neil&rsquo;s farm in southwestern Ontario at age 13. It was farming that led him to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Guelph. After some short stints in sales where he met his beautiful wife, he turned his passion for the land into a career in landscaping. As his health deteriorated he could not bring himself to give up &lsquo;his lawns&rsquo; and had a few customers he was devoted to til the last day. Dan was an avid reader and sports fan, especially the Dallas Cowboys. Dan was an immensely proud husband and father, his wife and son were his reason for being and gave him the strength to fight his disease.
