Kelly Shawn Trujillo

December 1, 1960 — August 5, 2023


Kelly Shawn Trujillo, 62, of Jerome, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones on August 5, 2023. He was born in Jerome, Idaho, on December 1, 1960, to Sandra and William “Bill” Trujillo.

At an early age, Kelly was a tough and incredible athlete. He loved competition and won his first trophy at age 7 in the Punt, Pass, and Kick program where he placed first in his age group and got the opportunity to fly to Nationals. He was also an excellent pitcher and shortstop in the Little League Program.

During high school in Jerome, he won first place in the Idaho State Golf Tournament in Sun Valley, Idaho. He graduated from Jerome High School in 1979.

Kelly was a Correlator Foreman for Moore’s Business Forms, where he worked for many years. Later, Kelly met his wife Loranda Starns, and together they had a son, Trevor, and a daughter, Nicole. When Moore’s Business Forms shut down, he became a charismatic bartender and was the life of the party. He was a social entertainer to all who knew him, singing songs like Elvira, Bad to the Bone, and ZZ Top's La Grange. Kelly loved to hunt, fish, golf, and hunt arrowheads in the desert in Idaho.

Kelly was preceded in death by his mother, Sandra Trujillo; his grandparents, Murray and Maxine (Zimmerman) O’Rourke and Selvy and Alvina Trujillo; and many aunts; uncles; and cousins.

He is survived by his wife, Lori; son, Trevor; daughter, Nicole; father, Bill; brothers, Chris and Brad; sisters, Shelly and Angie; and many nieces and nephews.

Graveside service will be held at 2:00 pm, Monday, August 14, 2023, at Jerome Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will follow at the Snake River Elks Lodge, 412 E 200 S, Jerome.
