This past week has been difficult for the entire Battle Ground community, none more so than the family of Sergeant Kelly and the members of the Battle Ground Police Department. On behalf of Sergeant Kelly’s family, the City of Battle Ground would like to express thanks and appreciation to all those who have offered their words of comfort, shared memories of Sergeant Kelly, and honored his many years of dedicated service to our community.
Due to limited space, a private memorial service will be held for Sergeant Kelly’s family, close friends, and members of local law enforcement. In recognition of his deep love for the Battle Ground community, the Kelly Family would like to offer the public an opportunity to participate in his remembrance. Sergeant Kelly’s memorial service will be live streamed on Saturday, August 19, starting at 2:20pm, and may be viewed using the following link: https://client.tribucast.com/tcid/7839016751
In lieu of flowers, the “Rick Kelly Memorial Fund” has been set up by the Battle Ground Police Officers Association, to support the Kelly Family with funeral expenses and to establish a memorial in Sergeant Kelly’s honor. Donations may be made at any IQ Credit Union branches, or online through PayPal https://www.paypal.com/donate/?hosted_button_id=JXUVJELJLJZJS
