Obituary for Donald J. Kerley..........................
- Donald J. Kerley, 66, of Hampton passed away Thursday November 1, 2018 at his home surrounded by his family. He was born in Indianapolis, IN on December 27, 1951, the son of the late Robert and Clara Mae (Stadtman) Kerley.
A 1970 graduate of Kings Park High School in Kings Park, NY, he was a 1974 graduate of The United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO and he proudly served 20 years in the United States Air Force. In 1980 Don became a pilot with Delta Airlines where he worked for 36 years before retiring in 2016.
Family and travel meant the world to Don and he loved sharing adventures with those close to him. The house became the focal point for impromptu “power feeds” of all the children and their friends. He had a great appreciation for life, friends, sports and most of all his country. He was a modest man who was involved in many community activities.
He is survived by his wife Denise, of Hampton as well as his daughters, Jill of New York, NY, Kim & David of Sarasota, FL, and Courtney & Tyler of Westerly, RI; brother, Robert of Conyers, GA and sister Andrea of Fontana, WI, sister in law Michelle & Ed of North Berwick, ME and brother in law Marc & Debra of Swampscott, MA and his 4 nephews.

To whom it may concern,
I am a retired Delta pilot and my friend Donald J Kerley also a retired Delta Pilot passed last week. I was wondering if you could pass his funeral arrangements to the retired Delta Pilots that belong to your organization.
