Bro. Donald Kelly '65

Bro. Donald Kelly, mathematics professor at Marist College for 32 years, passed away on Wednesday, August 3, 2016. Known to colleagues and friends as Brother Don, he was 74 years old.

A Marist Brother since 1962, Brother Don graduated from Marist College in 1965 and then went on to receive master's degrees in mathematics from Hunter College in 1969 and applied statistics from New York University in 1974. He taught for many years at the high school level, including at the Msgr. Pace High School in Miami, the Marist High School in Chicago, and two terms of service at Christ the King High School in Queens, NY, where he also served as chair of the Mathematics Department. Brother Don returned to Marist to teach in 1984. While teaching full time, he earned an additional master's degree in computer science from Marist in 1986 and in 1993 earned his Ph.D. from Polytechnic Institute of NYU.

The Kelly family requested that donations in Brother Don’s memory be made to the Bro. Donald J. Kelly, FMS, Memorial Scholarship at Marist. If you would like to make a gift, please visit and direct your gift to Brother Donald Kelly Memorial Scholarship.
