Hayward Kelley

July 12, 1928 — November 1, 2016

Kelley, Hayward ("Ward") Kendall, Jr., 88, beloved husband of Sue Kelley for 63 years, went peacefully into the Lord's Hands on November 1. While Sue predeceased Ward in 2010, surviving both are their three sons Kim (wife Nancy), Curt (wife Debby), Hunt (wife Vickie), grandchildren Sara, Caroline (Kevin), Matthew (Casey), Andrew (Fiona), James, Hunter, Spencer, McCall, and great-grandchildren Abel, Daxon, Kendall and Catherine. After graduation from University School, Ward attended Cornell and Kenyon College. He then joined National Screw and Manufacturing Company in Cleveland, where he distinguished himself as a tough-minded sales executive. Following an early promotion and relocation to the Toledo area in the early 60's, Ward and his family returned to the Cleveland area and made Moreland Hills their home for the next 44 years. During his 45-year career, he never tired of developing and selling new hardware products. Until the day of his passing Ward was a dedicated member of the Cleveland Museum of Art. He also served as President of the Horace Kelley Art Foundation for over 35 years. Ward was an avid reader, investor and a member of several book and investment organizations. He enjoyed tennis at the Cleveland Racquet Club, where he was a founding member. In his later years, he took up golf and joined The Country Club, where his parents had been members for nearly 75 years. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested contributions in his memory be made to the Cleveland Museum of Art. There will be a memorial service and celebration of his life at 3:00 PM on November 12th at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Fairmount Blvd.
