Major Dwayne Kelley, an Army Major, and New Jersey State Trooper from South Orange, New Jersey , was laid to rest in a ceremony attended by Army personnel and hundreds of State Troopers from New Jersey and elsewhere.
Kelley served in the Army before beginning a police career. He was on his third tour of duty overseas with the U.S. Army Reserve, serving as an interrogator in Baghdad, when he was killed by an explosion in Sadr City, Iraq on June 24.
Kelly is survived by his wife, Manita Kelley and his daughter, Mushirah Kelley, both of South Orange; his mother, Vera Kelley of Willingboro; his sister Sabrina and brother-in-law David Dalton of Montclair; and by his brother, Michael Kelley and sister-in-law Ruth Kelley of Kissimmee, Fla.
May he rest in peace, and may his family find peace.
