Born in Manhattan, NY and raised in Kearny, NJ, John resided in Jersey City for the last 20 years. He was a graduate of Kearny High School. John worked as a NYC tour guide for many years.
John loved life and lived it to the fullest. He travelled to many countries, wrote for High Times and Punk magazine, met a lot of celebrities and loved the NYC gallery scene. Being a tour guide gave him an avenue to share the history and architecture of the city he loved. John will be missed because he was one in a million.
John is survived by his sisters, Susan and Elizabeth Kelly, and by his aunt Debbie Sachs. He also left behind many cousins.
He was predeceased by his parents, Eugene and Patricia Kelly.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to Animal Haven https://animalhaven.org/support/give-in-memory in loving memory of John.
