Stetson went to his eternal home Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018.

Stetson was born on May 26, 1992, to Gary Don Kelley and Heather Gowin in Brownwood. He went to Early High School. Stetson enjoyed fishing and hunting with his dad and brother. He also enjoyed welding, back roading, spending time with his family and friends, and his dog, Buddy. His biggest interest was metal art, which he became interested in metal when working with his dad and R&S Industry; he enjoyed every minute he was there.

Stetson was a people person and you could always count on him if you needed help. He was very intelligent, funny, and kind hearted. Stetson was also a big prankster, always playing pranks on his family and friends. He wasn’t afraid of hard work and always gave 100 percent in everything he did.

Stetson leaves behind to cherish his memory the two loves of his life: son, Trenton Kelley, and mother of Trenton, Rissa Saucillo, both of Austin; parents, Gary Don Kelley and wife Carolyn of Early, and Heather and Mike Massey of Brownwood; siblings, Darrell Williams of Brownwood, Zach Kelley of Early, and Kristy Hays and husband Chris of Henderson; paternal grandmother, Terri Mindieta of Brownwood; and maternal great-grandmother, Lila White of Brownwood. He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, numerous friends, and one very special aunt, Sabrina Morrison, whom he loved dearly.

He was preceded in death by his uncle, Mickey Dale Kelley; paternal grandfather; maternal grandparents; and cousin, Little Billy Jones.
