FRYEBURG — Scott Anthony Kelly of Fryeburg, Maine, passed away on March 30, 2013, at Hospice House in Auburn.

He was born in Cambridge, Mass. on Nov. 27, 1933, the son of the late Dr. Joseph Kelly and Clara McKay, adopted son of the late Louise Kelly. He grew up in Orleans on Cape Cod and came to Fryeburg as a young man to take a post-graduate course at Fryeburg Academy. He graduated with the Class of 1953. Scott went on to the University of Maine and graduated with the Class of 1957. His dream was to be a science teacher and coach. He was invited to return to Fryeburg Academy and he fulfilled his dream in the school and town he had grown to love. Scott had a 61-year relationship with the Academy and was grateful for each and every year, and all the beautiful relationships he fostered with students, parents, faculty, staff and the town’s people.
