Obituary of Joshua N. Kelly

Please share a memory of Joshua to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Joshua N. Kelly, 45, of Kingston and formerly of Natick, passed away on December 29, 2023. 

Beloved husband to Katelyn Kelly of Kingston. Loving son of Carol (Day) and the late Johnathan Kelly of Roseville, CA, and formerly of Natick.

Cherished brother to Andrew Kelly and his wife Deborah of Hudson, and Jason Kelly and his wife Gina of Roseville, CA. Son in law to Jean and Howard Maglathlin of Kingston. And is survived by his Sister in law Megan Harrigan and Shajn Raines of Kingston. Joshua is also survived by his Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, cousins as well as his extended family and friends and the bestest dog “Abbie”. 

Josh went to school in Natick, where he made lifelong friends. He went on to graduate from Bridgewater State College, where he met the woman he would ask to be his wife. They were married in 2009 and bought a house in Kingston in 2013. They were husband and wife, best of friends, perfect partners and each other’s true love.

Josh was a larger than life personality. He was funny, talented, always willing to help someone. He loved food, wine, fishing, boating, Friday’s at Mama’s, and recently wood carving but above all, people.

He loved us completely and everyone he met loved him right back. I hope you know how loved you truly were.
