Maxwell Thomas's Story
Maxwell Thomas Kelley, age 23, formerly of Newburyport, died unexpectedly Monday afternoon at his home in Haverhill.
Born in Newburyport, February 10, 1993, Max was the son of Dawn (Consiglio) Jones of Seabrook, N.H. and stepson of Stephen Jones of Amesbury. He was a graduate of Triton Regional High School, where he was a member of the football team.
For the past few years Max had been working as a truck driver for the local hospice agency.
In addition to his mother and step-father, Max leaves behind his sister, Kerri Consiglio of Windham, Maine; his brother, Eric Edward Chapman, Jr. of West Newbury; his grandmothers, Beverly Mitchell Hallisey and husband, Brian of West Newbury and Barbara Chapman of Florida; his stepsisters, Sandra and Melissa; stepbrothers, Kenny and Jimmy; his best friend, Jake Mansur, along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends.
The agony of his loss is wrenching their hearts with pain and their minds are struggling to comprehend the profound enormity of his passing. With tear-filled eyes and heavy hearts they reflect on the joys he has shared with them, the sound of his laughter and his voice, his kindness and sincerity, his love of adventure, and above all else, his love of family and his love of music. All these things become their priceless treasures, which can never be taken away from them.
Visiting hours at the Highland Street Chapel of Paul C. Rogers Family Funeral Home, 2 Hillside Avenue, Amesbury, will be Monday, October 3, 2016 from 6 to 8 p.m. followed by a “Time of Remembrance” by family and friends.
