He is preceded in death by his parents Donald and Gail Kelly and his brother Michael. He loved spending time with family, cooking, camping and tinkering with things. His happy place was his camper and traveling to new places. Shawn has been described by many as being selfless and a dedicated public servant. He had a genuine passion for making his community a better place for all. Shawn was always quick witted and loved to make anyone laugh. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, uncle, soon-to-be grandfather, and friend. Shawn was a corporal with the Denham Springs Police Department serving as a Motor Officer. He has been involved in law enforcement for 27 years. Shawn dreamt of being a police officer ever since he was a young child, and truly embodied what it meant to protect and serve. He is the true definition of a Hero. Donations can be made in memory of Corporal Shawn Kelly to the “Behind the Line” organization to continue to offer support for families of first responders.
