Kelvin was an active member of the veteran community and worked with the Department of Veterans Affairs. He was very creative and enjoyed drawing or sketching. He will be remembered for his amiable personality, as he never met a stranger he couldn’t charm. His comedic wit and funny one-liners will also be missed.
