Three young Berkeley High School graduates have lost their lives in Oakland this past week due to gun violence.

Two of the victims were 22-year-old Terrence McCrary Jr. and 20-year-old Craig Fletcher-Cooks. They were killed early Sunday morning while attending a birthday party at an art gallery in downtown Oakland.

Berkeleyside freelancer Delency Parham — a friend of McCrary’s — spoke with family members and other friends of McCrary, who was known to many as Terrence Mack. In an obituary, Parham shares their thoughts, along with his own feelings about what the community has lost.
