DeForest Kelley Up Close and Personal: A Harvest of Memories from the Fan Who Knew Him Best

If not for a question I couldn’t answer back in 2000, this book probably would never have been written.

When DeForest Kelley’s biographer Terry Lee Rioux asked me, “How did you go from being a fan—on the outermost reaches of fandom—to being at Mr. Kelley’s bedside when he died?” I was struck speechless. Finally, I responded, “I have no idea. That’s something only De could answer. I can’t speak for him.”

Terry persisted: “You know the answer. You just have to connect the dots…”

The question pestered me. My 30-plus year association with DeForest Kelley had all just seemed so miraculous to me. That’s because I still hadn’t come to grips with the reality that De and Carolyn Kelley weren’t just being kind to one of their most ardent fans. I had become a friend.

Terry’s question led me to re-visit the scores of journals and four behemoth three-ring binders that I had filled with the conversations I had painstakingly recorded after each visit and call. You wouldn’t think—as crazy about the Kelley’s as I was—that I would have forgotten a single moment. But I had.

This is how I discovered, for the very first time, the path that our friendship took.

My hope is that my memories will bring you as close to meeting “the real McCoy” up close and personal as I was blessed to experience.

Independence Day: Resurgence is a 2016 American science fiction adventure film directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Emmerich, Dean Devlin, Nicolas Wright, James A. Woods and James Vanderbilt. It is the sequel to the 1996 film Independence Day and stars an ensemble cast featuring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward,Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner and William Fichtner.

The film is set twenty years after the events of the first film. Since then, the United Nations have collaborated on the Earth Space Defense (ESD), an international military defense and research organization, and developed hybrid technology reverse-engineered from the invaders’ in anticipation that they would return. When the returning aliens again attack Earth with an advanced and unprecedented force during the twentieth anniversary of humanity’s victory against them on July 4, a new generation of defenders from the ESD joins forces with the surviving protagonists from the first film to participate in a battle to save the world from annihilation. In addition, humanity begins to explore their extraterrestrial adversary’s history and motives.
