|Terrance “T.K.” Kelly was born April 23, 1986 in Oakland, California to the proud parents Carla Ellis and Landrin Kelly. Terrance was raised in Richmond, California where he attended St. Cornelius and St. David’s Elementary School. He went on to graduate in June 2004 from De La Salle High School in Concord, California. During his four years at De La Salle High School he never lost a football game. Terrance was offered numerous college scholarships. However he selected the University of Oregon where he was looking forward to attending in the fall.
Terrance was a hero in the community. He was a young man who was not involved in drugs or gangs and who rose above his circumstances and fought to demand better. Tragically at 18 years old, only days before he was to leave, his promising life was lost.
