Jack Kelley's Story:
Loves kids(especially my rug rats);enjoys sports,athletic;Intelligence-picks up
things easy,must work on retention;enjoys coaching sports(especially
children);loves to play Softball;I have allot of good friends guess that makes
I miss my Mother. I loved her dearly. My father and I have become very close
since my children have been born. I grew up mostly with my Mother. and Brother
Jim. Though Jim and I fought all the time growing up, and sometimes still do, we
are very close and I know I would miss him more than anyone if he was not
around. I love and care for all my brothers and sisters dearly and individually.
I spent the first few years on 8th and Jackson st.. I have only vague memories
of these days. My parents separated and my mother, Jim and I temporarily moved
in an apartment with my sisters Maureen and Kathy. on 8th and VanBuren st.. A
block up from Jackson St. in downtown Wilmington. Still vague memories. Only a
few months later we moved into an apartment on the corner of 9th and VanBuren.
My Memory begins to kick in here. We had lived in this apartment during the
period of Martin Luther King's Death. Racial tension was everywhere, even in the
classroom of a five year old's Kindergarten. I was the only white child in my
class.The only friend who would befriend me was a Puerto Rican child, who barely
spoke English. I honestly thought that this was normal and somewhat accepted it.
Although the school was on the other end of the block of my house, I couldn't
make it home ,to often,without getting beat up. Again I thought this was normal.
Finally one day, Somehow my Mother found out and told my Big Brother, Jim, who
was only one and halve years older than me but twice my size, to walk me home
after school. Well, he caught one of the Bullies picking on me and pounded him
and a couple of his friends so bad that I never had a problem making it home
again. Racial tensions got so bad my Mother had to move out of the City.We moved
into an apartment complex called Alban Park right outside of the city and lived
there for six years. I really enjoyed these years. I made the greatest friends
and had some of my greatest experiences during this time. I still have one of
those friends, Daniel Neff. I am sure we will always be friends. My Mother used
to call him her eleventh child. When I was twelve Mom , Jim and I moved into a
tiny apartment above a bakery directly across from my school, Richardson Park. I
really liked this school. It was small, but included Kindergarten through Ninth
grade. I really enjoyed playing sports there;baseball,basketball and soccer. It
seemed like the same group of boys, my friends, were on every team together. We
did pretty well on some of these sports for such a small school. We had allot of
pride in the Richardson Park Eagles. The Apartment on the other hand wasn't so
great. At this time of my life I became aware of status. I was very embarrassed
with our little tiny apartment on top of the Bakery. Most of my friends lived in
suburban houses. I lived through the experience and grew from it. During my
ninth grade year we moved to Glenville, DE. We rented a small ranch house on a
concrete slab. It was beautiful to us! A house with a front and back yard.
Though it took me a while to meet new friends, I soon did, but I mainly
maintained my friendship with my friends from Richardson Park where I finished
ninth grade. Although I was living out of the school district. My Big Brother
Jim would drive me to school and back that year. In High school, Wilmington
High, I immediately became pretty popular. This was directly due to my Brother
Jim's popularity.He took me under his wing brought me through the social
barriers. My problem was maybe a little to social. I was in all the college prep
courses and maintained just above a "C" average through three years without
taking a book home. This I believed was OK. I realized different when I went to
college and was well under prepared. I did enjoy my social life in high school.
I played basketball in tenth grade, but my best sport was soccer which I played
all through high school. I probably would have played baseball, but the social
life and the after school jobs kept me from doing so. I needed to keep up with
the social life. As I said, I began college at the University of Delaware
unprepared, so I struggled through my classes. The challenge was somewhat
enjoyable, though. High school was never much a challenge at Wilmington
High.Again, I enjoyed the social life of college. I also seemed to have a need
to work to much in college. By my second year of college,I often wondered if
this was right for me, about this time a job opportunity at the Post Office was
offered to me. My Mother worked there for twenty years. The money sounded to
good to turn down. I was going to take the job for a year, buy a house, rent out
the extra rooms,quit,get a part time job and go back to school. I bought the
house, 23 6th ave in Browntown. I was twenty one yrs old. I rented out the
rooms, but I never quit my Job. I got used to the solid income. This is a
decision I never regretted, but often wonder what my life would be if I'd gone
back to school. When I was 25, I settled down with my beautiful bride, Robin
Fox. Life together was rocky from the start. Though in love we moved at
different speeds. Mine a little to fast, hers a little to slow.We, in a short
period of time, had two beautiful children, bought a new house,kept the old one,
worked on both and tried to start a vending business. Mostly my Ideas and
probably to much at once. Our marriage only lasted four years.We have maintained
a good relationship and it has shown in two healthy children. My pride and joy.
I spend as much time as possible with these little guys and truly enjoy this
more than anything else in my life. I now understand how my mother felt. I wish
she could be here today to feel it again with my children;though sometimes I
think she does. I loved my mother so much. It was easy, because of how much she
loved us. She would do anything for her children. She sacrificed her whole life
for us and only now can I fully appreciate that. I used to believe her life was
so miserable; she had little life outside her ten children and she seemed to
always be sick,I now believe that she lived her life as she wanted and enjoyed
so much of it. I always loved my father dearly,but honestly only became real
close to him shortly after my kids were born. We immediately gained a common
love of life. We are so close now and he has become a major part of my family's
life. I have yet to mention other than Jim the rest of my relationships with my
brothers and sisters. I was the youngest of ten kids. There was a seven year gap
between the twins and Jim.(Two babies died in that period). Tom, the oldest,
Other than when he was in the Airforce Tom lived with me until he was married.
He often had the lucky job of baby-sitting and Jim and I often got on his
nerves, But he was very patient with us and was a good brother.The next child,
Kathy, was my emotional support growing up and she accepted this role freely.
Maureen, the next in line, married young and our relationship became strong when
I reached the age to baby-sit for her kids. Chris, her oldest, became like a
little brother to me. Mareen and I have formed a common parental bond. The next
in line is Danny. He was always around growing up. He always found time in his
busy schedule to help Jim and I. His influence helped me into college. Mickey
had moved away when we were still pretty young. Our visits together were always
enjoyable. He and I have become allot closer over the years and we now realize
how much we are alike.Candice lived with us for most of the period after our
parents separated. She to had to baby-sit me and Jim. She helped Mom raise us.
Bonnie, the 2 minute older twin, helped me and Jim allot growing up and was
always there for advice. She would do anything for us when we were growing up.
The other twin connie, had little patients for us as children but our
relationship began to grow as we all got older. I have had some of my best times
and best conversations with Connie and appreciate her emotional strength. Jim
and I were like most brothers;close to the same age. We fought constantly around
the house, but outside the home we ultimately looked after each other. Jim and I
are still very close and still sometimes fight. He is my best friend and think
I'M stuck with that the rest of my life.
This story is not my favorite but one that has had a major impact on my life. I
was about six or seven years old and playing hide and go seek in my fathers
basement in Vilone village. My brother, Jim, went upstairs to count. I decided
to hide in the unused unplugged refrigerator. Jim went to use the bathroom and
evidently forgot we were playing. Within a short period of time, I decided to
try to get out. It didn't work. I panicked. After what seemed like forever of
banging and yelling, I gave up. I really thought that this was it. Somehow my
father just felt that something wasn't right and for no other reason than
instinct, he walked downstairs. Of course, when there, he could hear me. The
memory of seeing his face and the feeling of being held by him is and always
will be impacted in my mind.
