I worked for the Kelleys way back in the 1970's. With HBK, I cut my teeth on Commercial Real Estate. I have many fond memories of my days in Palo Alto with the Kelley Bros. Bill Sowles of Seattle

Thank you for this posting. Mr. Kelley's first wife, Mona, was my dad's cousin. I have wonderful memories of their family when I was a little girl. I have often wondered how they were doing. My regards to this outstanding man and his contributions.
