Trent Kelly

To celebrate the life of Trent Kelly, who loved snowboarding, “A Ride For Trent” will take place at 2 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 29 from the top of Sublette to the bottom of the mountain. Any and all are welcome to join to celebrate and forever remember his extraordinary life. Kelly died Jan. 15. His family provided the following.

Trent Matthew Kelly left this world far too soon. He grew up in Chesterfield, Virginia, but followed in his older brother’s footsteps in making Jackson Hole his love and his home.

He was an engaging and social young man who had an avid love for nature, snowboarding, golf, animals, his family and people in general.

He was a dedicated worker at Westside Wine and Spirits, the Teton Pines Golf Course and previously Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

He was well known for his vivacious personality and ability to make others smile, but mostly for his heart of gold. He had a tender soul and kind spirit that touched all who knew him.

Trent is survived by his mother, Riese C. (Rick) Hairfield, his father, Sean P. Kelly, three brothers Tiernan, Shane, and Jack, and his sister Chloe (Anthony) Pettee.
