Kelvin passed away at his home Monday, Jan. 13, 2020, from a long battle with cancer.

Kelvin worked at Farmstead for many years; he also was a great mechanic and worked for a few different mechanic shops in Albert Lea.

Kelvin grew up in Albert Lea, and, of course, loved his Vikings. He enjoyed watching wrestling, family gatherings, trips to the casino with Jessica and friend, Greg, fishing trips with Jared and Brett and others as well. Kelvin also enjoyed tinkering on cars and snowmobiles as a front yard mechanic.

Kelvin will be greatly missed.

Kelvin is survived by his daughter, Jessica (Mick Westeng), and their children Makayla, Makenzie, Morgan and Andrew; son, Jared; sister, Shirley (Randy) Crawford; and many nieces, nephews and extended family. 

He is preceded in death by his parents; sister, Cindy Crawford; brother-in-law, James Crawford; and his favorite dog, Kaiser.

He will be greatly missed.
