Kelvin Carl Walker, 61, passed away Sunday, January 6, 2019. He was born August 9, 1957 in John Day, Oregon, the son of Hensel D. Walker and Alma Ruth Wood Walker.

Kelvin was an avid fisherman, hunter and hiker. His love for the outdoors was indescribable; he was always eager to share his love for the outdoors with others. Kelvin worked for TEP Springerville Generating Station for 34 years, where he served as a mechanic, mechanic foreman, maintenance superintendent and manager of health safety, training and security, retiring in March of 2018.

Kelvin loved to serve his community of Eagar and Springerville and loved coaching the youth of Round Valley. He coached football, baseball, basketball and wrestling. He had a deep love of patriotism for this country and the military, but his greatest love and devotion was to his family. P.S. he loved his hound dogs.
