The story of
Timothy Orson Kelly, our big brother, 72 years old, passed away from heart failure on October 29th. Tim was born in Boise Idaho on September 9, 1951. He attended Corvallis Highschool and University of Oregon, where he graduated with a degree in forestry sciences. Tim lived in the Clatsop area for many years. Tim loved music, he loved people, and he loved trees. He operated a tree care service and he played guitar. He performed with other musicians in the local area and with Chris Coltrane and The Blues Blasters nationally. Tim leaves behind 3 sisters, 2 brothers, a group of good friends, and a legacy of love and care for his freinds and family. Tim's Guitars are being donated to Albina Christian Life Center where Tim played on Sundays. In Tim's memory, his family requests that we each plant a tree, and enjoy local music. A celebration of life will be held at Albina Christian Life Center, to be scheduled at a later date. Freinds and family will be notified.
