God called Kelvin home May 12, 2016 during the middle of the day at his job. For those that were blessed to know Kelvin, they knew he loved working at his job. Thank God, he did not suffer. God called him right away and he ascended to heaven. Kelvin attended John Muir Junior High and Freemont High School in Los Angles, California.
