Dear Beverly and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I first came to know Kelton in 1966 where He served as my mentor as I complete my practice teaching requirements.Little did I know at the time that I would spend the next 35 years with him in many capacities in the Millbury public schools. During that time Kelton became a true friend and mentor To me and others. He was one of the best individuals I’ve known in my lifetime. God bless all of you. We shared many good times and laughs.

Dear Beverly and family. I was so saddened to hear of Kelton's passing and the fact that this pandemic prevented him from one last summer here in the Bay. My thoughts are with you all. He was a wonderful person, always greeting you with a smile and a handshake. I am better for having known him. Please, take care during this time and know all of us Bay folk are with you during this period of mourning. God bless.


Kelton was part of a group of a dozen or so senior wahashores who met daily at the Cape Cod Mall for coffee and weekly at Jack's Lounge for more inspiring libations. The meetings consisted of repetitive stories with much exaggeration and minimal veracity but enjoyable nonetheless. The group was a mix of engineers, educators , machinists and even a famous Hollywood writer and actor, Marc London. Marc was clearly the most intelligent, interesting and aggravating member of the conclave. Sadly, Kelton's departure leaves some 4 members from the original group. Thanks for the ride, old friend and we look forward to seeing you in the future-but hopefully not too soon.

I would like to express my heart felt sympathy to Kelton's family in this difficult time. He will be greatly missed here in Scot's Bay. I will especially miss our bouts of needling each other on every subject from sports to cars to politics. He will always be fondly remembered.
