Lessons Learned From Boston College SID Dick Kelley


Kelley died last night at Massachusetts General Hospital. He was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in September of 2011, and the horrible, unfair disease crippled him until yesterday when he passed away peacefully. A lot of people are going to say that Kelley, affectionately known as DK, was the true embodiment of Boston College and everything it stands for—but that wouldn’t be fair, because he set the bar even higher than that.
