"Just go on to the next level." ~ Kelvin Youngblood.

Do you want to know the heart of Kelvin Youngblood? That quote says it all. "Just go on to the next level," Kelvin told San Martin Rodriguez, during a podcast and video interview less than a month before he passed away. 

Kelvin passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, February 26, from heart complications. At 34 years old, he leaves behind many family members, including two young daughters.

Kelvin’s funeral will be held on Friday, March 8th at Ruffner-Wakelin Funeral Home in Prescott Valley from 3-6 PM.

Kelvin was the owner of the Granite Mountain Silverbacks. On their Facebook page, he is recognized as an Owner/Player/DFL Brother. The Silverbacks pledge, "We will continue to do our best to play these games out in honor of him."

A ‘GoFundMe’ account has been set up to help support his family, and cover medical expenses.

On the GoFundMe page, it is written:

Kelvin Carlos Youngblood, born August 18, 1984 sadly passed away on February 26, 2019. First we would like to say thank you to everyone for their prayers, love and support for our beloved friend, companion, son and father of 2 beautiful girls that he unfortunately and abruptly left behind without a choice. Kelvin's girls were his world. He had a heart of gold. His sudden passing has left many tasks undone. We have created this campaign to assist with 2 memorials (1 here locally and the other in Chicago where the majority of his family resides) medical expenses from the hospital and also the expenses that accrue for two beautiful girls that are now without a father. Please continue to pray for the Youngblood family. The girls especially need a lot of prayers and support as this has been the most excruciating time for them... any donation made will most certainly be greatly appreciated.

Kelvin recently took part in two podcasts with Prescott Night Out and Prescott eNews, which you can listen to or watch here:
