Graduating from Lake Taylor High School in 1970 Kelvin was a star athlete! Even though Kelvin was the shortest one on the court he had game and he so loved playing basketball.  His hobbies included music, movies and going to the gym. After pursuing a career in music, performing and recording with a group known as The Love Foundation Kelvin was an entrepreneur for the vast of his adult life. He married once on April 15, 1983, the love of his life and mother to his daughter, Hope Vivette Taylor.
