CEELY, Robert, 76, of Clearwater Florida went to be with his Lord, surrounded by his loving family Wednesday, May 15, 2013. Robert was born in New York City on March the 5th, 1937 to Robert and Margaret Ceely. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force including two tours of duty in the Vietnam War. He proudly retired at the rank of Master Sergeant in 1976. At that time, Robert and his loving wife Regina made Clearwater their home. He worked briefly in the late 70's at the Clearwater Police Department in the Communications Department until a disability made working no longer possible for him. Robert and his wife enjoyed going on trips sponsored by their church, Light of Christ, including several cruises.
Robert is survived by his loving wife, Regina; Sons, Robert (Lila) Ceely, and Craig Ceely; Grandchildren, Brian, Emily, and Daniel. Robert will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him well.
