Frank Kelly Jr. '68, P '96
The next time you crack open a can of Coke or Pepsi, stop and think of Frank Kelly. The trustee emeritus spent 24 years with The Coca-Cola Company in executive positions here and abroad. At retirement, he was vice president, as well as executive vice president of Coca-Cola Nestle. Francis Kelly Jr. was born in Boston on June 22, 1946. A graduate of Cambridge Latin, Bentley and Harvard Business School, Mr. Kelly loved golf and his hometown sports teams. In the late 1970s, he took a brief hiatus from his career with Coke to become president and CEO of PepsiCo Japan. In 1992, Mr. Kelly joined Bentley’s Board of Trustees and helped lead the college into the new century; he was also a member of many other for- and nonprofit boards. This June, he celebrated his 50th Bentley reunion. He is survived by his beloved wife of 40 years, Masako; five sons, including Simon Kelly ’96; and six grandchildren.
