Kelvin went to work for the Glasgow Police Department in 1979. Kelvin had so much pride for his work with the Police Department and enjoyed sharing stories with his family. He made many great friends along the way and cherished those friendships for many years. He retired from the police department in 1986.
Upon his retirement from the police department he went back to work painting and being a stay at home dad. He spent his days hunting and fishing with his kids. He took great pride in teaching his kids and grandchildren all about hunting and fishing. Kelvin and Adam fished the Montana Governors Cup as a team in 1992.
