    My most heartfelt condolences to the family and loved ones of Kelvin. I knew Kelvin from his time he spent in New Jersey. He always a pleasant person with a smile like sunshine. A very special person. I’ll miss him and always have fond memories.

  4. Kevin, brother, you will be forever missed! I remember moving to Knoxville a little over 3 years ago, and moving in next to you and Miss Rosalee. You both have befriended us, and we kept that friendship! You are more than a friend, you are my brother. You always called me sis! Kolton says you were his buddy and he will always remember how you always gave him a dollar bill made it into a shark fin! You’d always come over and ask where your back dry was…Every time I seen you, you always had a smile on your face! You have impacted so many ppl I such a positive way by your kind heart and gestures and that bright smile! Go rest high brother for this is not goodbye, we will see you again!

    I was a regular drive-thru customer at McDonalds for years and my family
    and I grew very fond of Kelvin. It broke our hearts to hear of his passing.
    He will be greatly missed. I thank God for the Promise and we will see Kelvin
    and all the other precious ones who have gone before. We will pray for God’s comfort and strength for you all. We will always remember Kelvin’s joy and smile, and the Love of God he shined so brightly.

    Ron and Imy Weaver
