Obituary of David B. O'Kelly, III

David B. O'Kelly III, born in Bishopville, SC on November 9, 1941, passed away peacefully at his home in Elgin, SC on September 22, 2021 at the age of 79.  


His most treasured relationships were that of his two daughters, Tracy Klatt and Ashley Miller, his granddaughters Katie Klatt and Grace Miller, his longtime companion, Bonnie Iseman, sister Murleen Lucas and his adoring Jack Russell, Rosie. 

David had a long career in auto sales in the Columbia area. He had a true love for the outdoors, and his fondest memories were those spent deep sea fishing, hunting and playing golf with friends.  He enjoyed following sports, especially the Gamecocks, and was an excellent self taught chef.  He always had a sharp memory for recalling funny stories and an endearing, dry wit.    


Please join with family and friends on October 24, 2021 at the Woodlands Country Club in Columbia, SC from 1-3 pm to celebrate his life.
