November 1941 — November 2012

Charles Wayne Kelley was born in Wichita Falls, Texas, to Charley Lee Roy and Lola Mae Kelley in November of 1941, and went to his rest on November 8, 2012, at the age of 71. The family moved to San Francisco and settled in Concord, Calif., when he was a young boy. He attended the Seventh-day Adventist elementary school in Martinez and the Pleasant Hill Seventh-day Adventist school. He finished his high school schooling in 1959 at Golden Gate Academy in Oakland, Calif. After graduation he worked at Pemko Manufacturing Company in Emeryville, Calif.

Charles loved to work on and race cars as a hobby and won many trophies. He gave up racing when he married Janis Thiele of Placerville in 1963 and they settled in Concord, Calif. They had two sons, Charles Jr. and Carl. Charles soon went to work in a Machine shop as a machinist. Another job change came his way and he was hired as the Plant Manager of Occidental Paper Corporation. Eventually the family arrived in Placerville and Charles started the Kelley Concrete Pumping business in 1974, where he worked for 18 years.

Charles had many friends and kept in touch with them as well as classmates of years gone by. He enjoyed people and he and Janis opened their home on many occasions such as Friday night taco feeds, New Year’s Eve parties, class reunions, etc., throughout their marriage. After Charles and Janis divorced, he hung up the concrete pumping business and worked for Conforti in El Dorado. After retiring he was active with the senior citizens and did maintenance work for Taco Bell in Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills.

Charles was preceded in death by his mother and father and his brother, Richard Kelley. He leaves behind his two sons, Charles Jr. and Carl; his sister, Judy Cross of West Virginia; and nieces and nephews.

A memorial will be held at the Placerville Seventh-day Adventist Church, 6831 Mother Lode Drive in Placerville on Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers memorials may be sent to the Hospice of your choice.
