Obituary for James Marvin Skelly

James Marvin Skelly of Westland was born December 9, 1929 in Detroit, Michigan to Henry and Caroline (nee: Stracke) Skelly. He died May 15, 2017 at the age of 87.

Mr. Skelly is the beloved husband of the late Patricia (d. 1999). Loving father of Gregg (Scottie) Skelly, Michael (Patti) Skelly and Christine Skelly. Grandfather of Shawn Skelly Kerrigan (Angie)Skelly and the late Sara Skelly. Also 8 great grandchildren: Brother of Mary Jane Williams, Rita Condon, Paul Skelly and Jerry Skelly. Preceded in death by his siblings Marion, Sonny, Irene and Art.

In his spare time Mr. Skelly loved to fish and golf. He was a handyman who could fix anything and this was likely due to his background as an engineer for Ford Motor Company. He loved his family and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
