Daniel F. Kelly, Jr, 52, of West Haven entered into rest on September 28, 2020. He was the beloved husband of Michelle LaSalle Kelly. In addition to his wife, Coach Dan leaves his four boys Daniel III, twins Matthew and Ethan, and Rocco, his dad Daniel Kelly Sr., brother Ryan, nephew Tyler, his in-laws Carolyn and Wayne LaSalle, Wayne and Christy LaSalle Jr., their children Colby and Gage, many other family members, friends and the West Haven hockey community.
At the time of his death, Dan worked as a mechanic at Champion elevator. Dan loved sports, to play and to coach his boys and the community of West Haven where he was so well known either in hockey or baseball. Dan was always the first at the rink and last one to leave. He never missed any of the boy’s games, no matter what sport. No matter what the boys did, he was always proud. The question everyone will always remember is “Who are we?”
