Kelly Jesse Hathaway, 55, of Avondale, went to be with his Savior surrounded by his loving family on March 14, 2019 after a strong valiant battle with Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy.

Kelly was born to Kirby and Barbara Hathaway in Massachusetts on November 27, 1963. He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Linda, and their three children, Ashley (Bret) Olson, Andrew, and Alex. He is also survived by his parents and his brother Kyle and sister Cynthia, 5 nephews and 3 nieces. He is preceded in death by his older brother Kirk and his nephew Randall.

Kelly served his country proudly in the United States Army. His love for his family was only surpassed by his love for his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He served faithfully in every church he has attended since he was a child by singing, serving as a choir director, Awana leader, youth leader, and Deacon.

He also was an avid Suns fan. Anyone who knows him knew how he never failed in cheering the Suns on to a championship which they sadly never achieved. He never gave up and we have to believe God will allow him to cheer them on from Heaven.

Please honor Kelly’s life by joining in his services on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 10:00 AM at Lighthouse Baptist Church, 965 E. Van Buren, Suite 111-113, Avondale. Burial will be at 12:30 at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona at Cave Creek and Pinnacle Peak Roads in Phoenix. Following the services, family and friends are invited to attend a gathering at the home of his sister-in-law, Paula Paty, at 16036 N. 11th Ave., Unit 1088; Gate Code #8180. In order to ensure adequate refreshments, please RSVP to, 602-481-5203 or to the family directly.

We will all miss Kelly but are joyous that he is home with his Heavenly Father and those who went ahead and is now able to run the streets of gold.

I remember your singing and your youthful love for each other as we served together in the military in Germany. I also remember re-building your carburetor, one of the scariest mechanical times of my life! God sure helped us that day! So glad you are no longer limited by this flesh. You are dunking on the golden street, I'm sure. Linda, may God guide you in the rest of your journey. May He grant you peace, joy and liberty to pursue whatever it is He has for you. Your journey is not complete, just different. Enjoy every day knowing Kel is free to serve the Lord in his new body: to kneel at His feet, to shout with praise, and to jump with joy as he tells Jesus all about you (even though He already knows!). Kel's at peace. Kel is healthy. Kel is happy. Kel is full of joy. Remember, and rejoice with him until you are re-united in "a land where we'll never grow old". Shalom, friend. God is GOOD!

Bro. Kelly was a trooper. Tough, sensible and loving. Exactly what God intended men to be. A good example to his church family and a wonderful legacy for his children and future grandchildren. Heaven is sweeter. Love you Miss Linda (((hugs))), Adrianne

Kelly walked in first, followed my Linda, my 1st choir encounter with another known choir director. Linda had told me they were joining our choir, I thought, “I’ve heard this before”, but here they were, Kelly and Linda.

Oh No! I thought, someone who will tell me everything I’m doing is wrong! Boy, was I mistaken. Kelly had a wonderful base voice, even hitting all the A flats! Man, I was happy to hear his voice! Deep, solid, and most importantly, he sang with a hard conviction that the sounds he made were glorying our Lord as though Jesus was right next to us all.

As the short years passed, I realized that this was not simply another singer in the choir, but a strong man, a principled guy who loved God and guided his family by Gods word.

As I got to know and understand Kelly as a brother in Christ, I came to realized I was speaking to a real mature, solid man who never wavered in the heat of spiritual warfare. I came to love him and Linda, along with Alex who was in our Sunday School class. As time passed, I could see why Alex addressed my wife and I with respect and love. That comes from a solid man and wife raising children of character.

Now let’s be clear, Kelly had NO PROBLEM with correcting me on my missed notes, but that is why I hold him dear in my memory! Strong, Confident and sure of his every step in matters that pertaineded to the church! Miss you Kelly, “Lord be with Linda”, amen.
