Tribute

Sunrise July 10th 1962
Sunset April 27th 2022

On July 10th 1962 a bright light was brought into this world, his name was Claiborne Earl Kellum Jr. and on April 27th 2022 that light was dimmed.
Clay received his education from Oakland Unified School District but he graduated from Fai Park High School in Shreveport La.
He enlisted into U.S Air Force and was Honorably discharged.
He eventually returned to the Bay Area and enrolled @ San Francisco State University where he obtained his degree in Accounting and became a Certified Public Accountant.
His path was eventually led to Bay Area Rapid Transit where he resigned after 15 years of service.
Clay favorite past time was researching religion, the race horses and our U.S government. He would not have been a great fan of this Pandemic brought upon us and definitely would not let the vaccination be their decision.
Clay was also a food enthusiast, would have been a great critic who loved going to different restaurants and trying different foods. I would always tease him about his food choice of the month would more than likely be the Nationality of date. Never discriminated against any female.
Clay is survived by his mother Vivian Gill, sisters Kimberly Allen, Lamarr Anderson and Beverly Nicole Kellum, brother Charles Claiborne Kellum. Nieces Camille , Marilyn, Jennifer, Jessica, Kimmie, Rickeya and Lil Vivian, nephews Darnell, Lance, Richard and Glen, great nephews London, Jaron and great niece Jalaya and a host of other cousins and relatives.
Father Claiborne Earl Kellum Sr. preceded him in death as well sister Marilyn Cynthia Kellum.
Brother , Son , Uncle . Clay will truly be missed by all.
The family would like to thanks all the people who were there to help Clay along the way Ms. Lina and husband George and Ms. Leah and her family.
