As a family they lived in Mankato, Luverne and Yardley, PA. Kelly was in the promotion business and worked for Promotion Works, Inc. in Mankato, CCL and finally Schwans both in Sioux Falls, SD.

     Kelly enjoyed golf, football and all sports and construction. He enjoyed his special early morning talks with his dad, and a treasured family trip to Mexico. One of the fond memories the family will hold of Kelly will be that he was always the one who supplied the great fireworks for their annual 4th of July get togethers. He enjoyed camping with his family and friends. But mostly Kelly loved and adored his girls. His daughters and new granddaughter Akira meant the world to him.

     As a result of health issues Kelly struggled with he passed away at the Avera McKennan hospital this past Sunday at the age of 48. He will be greatly missed.

     He is survived by his daughters, MaKenna Hadler (Josh Grunley) of Brandon, SD, Tia Hadler and Morgan Hadler, both of Luverne; granddaughter, Akira; parents, Rodney and Carol Hadler; sister, Danette (Doug) Deraqisch; brother, Mark (Brenda) Hadler of Edgerton, MN; sister, Tracy (Craig) Soehl of Marshall, MN; nieces, nephews and other extended family members.
