Kelvin K. Stehle

May 26, 1947 – May 11, 2017

Kelvin Stehle was born on may 26, 1947 in Hayden, CO to Ervin and Mary Beth Stehle. He attended country school on the Great Divide and graduated from Moffat County high School.

He married Marsha Hallquist on December 28, 1968 and they made their home in Craig. They had one daughter, Heather.

Professionally, Kelvin worked various jobs over the years including owning Stehle Electronics and Radio Shack in the 70's, working at the Memorial Hospital, and retiring from the Moffat County Courthouse. He served on the Craig City Council for on-term and received the award for most votes.

Kelvin was the kind of guy some would call a character. Ornery, even. He was famous for loving good jokes and telling great stories and felt most at home with a fishing rod in his hand. What he loved to do was a big part of who he was; but how he carried himself is how he will be remembered by so many. He never let anything get hi down-his optimistic attitude was such a gift. He led by example and I know if he were here, he would want us to celebrate his life laughing, joking, eating good food from one of his recipes, and throwing back a cold beer. Some of you might remember back in 2015, when he threw a party for sixty friends and relatives just because that's who he was. And how much he cared about the people in his life.
