Fehr was a CIT at the Youth Farm Bible Camp during the 2001 camp
season. He worked at camp during Adult Special Needs 1 and Children's
Camp 2. Kelly treated the campers with respect and care. He was
also able to get along well with YFBC staff. Everyone loved Kelly.
February 23, 2002, Kelly's life ended abruptly. He was washing his
dog close to the airconditioner when the chain came in contact with
a live wire. Kelly was electricuted and died. The website is a tribute
to Kelly with stories from people who worked with him at camp.

Kelly was born on November 2, 1983, in Rosthern Saskatchewan.
Even though he was Canadian by birth, until this point he considered
Bolivia his home. His parents are missionaries in Bolivia, and he
spent most of his life in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Kelly spent kindergarten,
fourth grade, and eighth grade in Saskatchewan, Canada, as well as
one summer and one Christmas. Kelly's life was a shorter one than
most of us are given, but during this time he jammed in a lot of living,
and because of his entertaining yet caring personality, he became
loved by a lifetime of friends.
Music, art, computer design, and literature, are just some of the
areas, which strongly enriched Kelly's life. He loved traveling and
adventure, and he always had a plan for the next escapade, whether
it be bungee jumping, going down sand dunes in a barrel, or back packing
South America with his buds. He liked to keep everyone's social calendar
packed, and he liked to be in the spotlight if anyone was in the audience.
However, in all of this he was a thinker who challenged others, and
most of all himself, to live a life dedicated to knowing God. On December
17, 2000 Kelly made a public declaration of his faith through baptism.
Kelly made Christ his Lord at a very young age, and he let this decision
profoundly affect how he lived out his numbered days.
Kelly was going to work at Camp Kadesh this summer, and he was going
to go to Briercrest Bible College in the fall. He was going to go
to University or Design school and study graphic design. In all these
things Kelly would have excelled, but instead he is now living it
up in heaven.
Kelly will be missed by all of the following lives that he touched:
his parents, Jake and Dorothy (Santa Cruz, Bolivia), sister Kendra
(Beijing, China), sister Karla (Saskatoon, Canada), his grandmas,
numerous aunts uncles and cousins from the Fehr and Adrian families,
the staff and students at the Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center,
and the hundreds of friends he knew from school, camp, and the many
other places where life took him. Kelly was predeceased by his Grandpa,
John P. Adrian, his Grandpa, John I. Fehr, and his Aunt, Erma M. Neudorf.
We love you Kelly and we'll see you again someday!
