I have started this reply 7 times and still could not really get out the words I want to say. Joe might not be here but will never be forgoten !! As much as we feel a lose my h eart goes out to his family and I would want to say thank you to them for understanding the countless hours he gave to us, his second family. Even when times werw a little tough Joe had a special way of blowing a bit of sunshine over us. 6038 has lost more than an old boss, we have all lost a great friend !!!! My heart and prayers go out to his family because that seems like a void almost impossible to fill but I hope they know if they need anything we at 6038 will always be there for them ! I am so sorry for your lose and THank You Mr Joe Kelly for everything you did for us and thank you for really caring about each of us. To Joe's family I am so sorry !!

I always liked to watch his TV show. He was a bit of a jerk but brought so much to the community and working with the OD. He will be sorely missed.

Billy you are thinking of the other Joe Kelly. The one you are thinking of is still alive and well and now owns the Boonville Herald newspaper. The Joe Kelly we are talking about here was the General Manager at WalMart Distribution Center in Marcy up untill about a year ago when he tranderred to the distribution center in Shelby NC. RIP Joe !

Joe was a great guy ,lot of Wal mart people do not know of the stand Joe took when The arkansas big shots wanted Joe to fire sevaral supervisors. He refused to do it , even though it might have cost him his job. To show how important he was to the Big Shots , they backed down not JOE,

Joe did great things for our building here in North Carolina. He can NOT be replaced and will NOT be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with the Kelly family. R.I.P Joe...

I worked for Joe Kelly for 5 years at Walmart dc 6038. He was a great boss, always had a smile on his face. Most of all he took to time to make the work conversation end into a personal,family feelings conversation. Joe always had heart to heart talks with everyone. That's the vibe u get when u mention Joe Kelly at 6038. God Bless his friends and family threw this hard time! R.I.P. Joe Kelly. He was a Great Person

The Joe Kelly I know (bad breath Joe, the newspaper guy) is famous for his ... females at the gym encounters.

Ask him about a midnight high speed chase around Sangertown Mall 20 or so years ago while he had an Airline Pilots WIFE in his car! Got caught RED HANDED by an angry husband!

Yeah, that's you, bad breath Joe.

Oh, and hey - Another Joe has a good story too, you know, Joe R, the BOCES teacher back then. We compared notes. Maybe we should write the stories down and sell the books like BB Joe does!

Mints, anybody?

I don't know who you are comparing him to but her was ??????

His wife Joellen a real piece. of work. They want money sent to a finacncial planner for Will (his son). Joe as making 6 figure salary plus a big life insurance and his wife and Will will get SS. How greedy are these people. Maybe she should consider working....

Joellen didn"t have thing to do with that you idiot . I do not who thought of putting that in there , it was not her. She has not even been up to reading the obit yet. Joe would turn over in his grave , if he was even in yet you asshole. Believe me Joe was a smart man , his family will be taken care of. So keep your stupid comments about his wife to yourself

Hey Joe baby (the newspaper guy, not the Wallyworld guy), how about another spin around the Mall at midnight in your Honda Accord? You can tell me about grandpa again so I can act all sympathetic to you! PS, the starting line is near JC Penneys!

Brushing and flossing might help that mouth thing too. Give it a try.

And Joe Ro***** says hello too. His kids April and Jason never quite got over you and mom.

That mall at midnight thing, only a few people know about it so I know who you are now!

Buy my newspaper! Watch my show!

And gosh darnit, I've tried listerine, mints, candy, gum and I still can't get rid of this bad breath! Any suggestions?
