Rudolph (Rudy) Ernest Kastner III, of Fair Haven, passed away on September 5, 2022 at the age of 58. His family and his many friends will miss his humor, loyalty, selflessness and most of all the unconditional love he had for them.

Rudy grew up in Fair Haven and attended Rumson-Fair Haven Highschool for some time, eventually earning his G.E.D. In his time at school, Rudy was enrolled in a vocational program where he learned carpentry, a skill he would take with him throughout his life.

Rudy would go on to work a number of odd-jobs, most of which involved carpentry. While he was paid with a 30-pack more often than a real paycheck, he loved working with his hands and had immense talent. Whether he was installing a porch deck, whittling a wooden bird for his mother, or cracking open a Budweiser, his hands were rarely idle.

Stephen Kelly was a kind, loving, big hearted man, whose loss will be mourned by everyone who knew him. He had many strengths. He was polite and courteous; he was a leader in almost every field he ever sought work; he cared for people and he let them know it. Children absolutely adored him because he truly was a kid at heart. He had many loves. He loved his family and friends and his pets, especially his dogs, Johnny and Daisy. He had a passion for a wide variety of music, a love he got from his dad. He was an avid reader of fantasy novels especially, including The Lord of the Rings series, The Wheel of Time series, and the Harry Potter series. He also loved his sports teams. The Mets fan base has grown in numbers this week. His heart has touched so many; it is incredibly painful to say goodbye.

Stephen is survived by his loving parents Hazel and Robert Kelly, his sisters Julie Hunter (Marqus) and Gina McCormick (Matt) and his three nephews who are forever grateful for his love and attention, Luke, Evan and Trey McCormick.  He is also survived by his grandmother, Evelyn Kelly, who loved him dearly. Stephen grieved the loss of his paternal grandfather, Robert A. Kelly, his uncle, Robert Raimann and his aunt, Joan Stein. The tragic loss of his fiancé Oliva Klatt in 2020 was truly devastating for him and left a hole in his heart that never healed.
