Kelley developed
several procedures, forms and other useful matters that were adopted by several courts across the country. Ken helped develop the National Association of Chapter 13 Trustees and served as its president in the early years.  He was honored by the Association upon his retirement.  He retired on December 31, 2014, exactly 47 years from his appointment.

“It has been a great ride and God has blessed me with a wonderful wife, super children, and extraordinary grandchildren, friends, church and too many other things to enumerate.  To Him must go the glory for anything that I have accomplished.”
