Page W. Kelley

SALISBURY – Page Wilson Kelley, a retired barber, died after a long illness Sunday, June 22 at Wicomico Nursing Home in Salisbury. He was 81.

Kelley was born and raised in New Church, Va. He was the son of the late Elmer and Stella Kelley. He attended Accomack County schools. He enlisted and served in the Army during the Korean War. After his honorable discharge, he worked as a survey technician at the former Naval Aviation Ordnance Testing Station at Wallops Island, Va.

Kelley later attended Barber School in Pennsylvania and began his career “cutting hair” at the former Wicomico Hotel at the One Plaza East building in Salisbury. Kelley’s more than 50-year career continued at Red’s Barber Shop on Baptist Street. He became the proprietor of “Kelley’s Barber Shop” at the same location when Reds Martin retired. Kelley enjoyed “holding court” in the shop with his son and business partner, Page W. “Biff” Kelley, Jr. The shop was a downtown fixture, and one of the last “old-fashioned” barber shops, complete with the spinning barber pole out front. The 1998 closing of this downtown landmark was chronicled by Brice Stump in the Daily Times. Mr. Kelley was unable to fully retire because loyal customers still demanded “basic haircuts” at his backyard ‘retirement’ barber shop.

He is survived by the “love of his life”, Barbara Regina Hooks Kelley, whom he met and married in 1950. Their only child, Page W. Kelley, Jr., died in November 1995. Also surviving are his sister, Ann Kelley Stephens and her husband Tom of Atlantic, Virginia, and several nieces, nephews and extended family.

A memorial service is planned for 11 a.m. on Friday, June 27 at the Church of Christ on Old Ocean City Road in Salisbury, Md. Internment will be in the Wicomico Memorial Park on Schumaker Drive, immediately following the memorial service.
