Tribute's For Thee Kellyaga,Jack Carr,& #33 Gandar
"Thee Kellyaga"The World's Most Famous Jai-Alai Amateur
A Tribute To "Thee Kellyaga" 1957-2008
The Jai-Alai world has lost one of their best ambassador's ever.David Kelly,known in the Jai-Alai world as "Thee Kellyaga"
has died suddenly from suspected smoke inhalation while sleeping. He spent his last day on this earth at the place he loved
dearly,the Orlando Fronton.
I have known Thee for several years,he was a fun guy who never took himself very seriously,
had a heart of gold and was a great humanitarian.If you needed help,financially or otherwise he was always there for you.
can never recall a conversation with him that Jai-Alai didn't come up.Just this week we made plans to be at Fort Pierce opening
night.He will be sorely missed,and I'm sure there will never be another like him. May you rest in peace,your friend Bill

One question I am always asked is,how did I become so Famous.I would
have to say its my defense against a hard thrown cortado.At that time I'm like a magician,"I disappear".In other words,I get
off the court as fast as I can.
