He was born December 23 1994 in Calgary Alberta to Michael Black Kettle and late Josey Old Woman. Kelsey resided in the Stobart area of Siksika Nation most of his life then headed for the big city lights in his 20’s. Kelsey was a loving proud father, uncle, cousin, brother, and a special friend to many. Kelsey came from a family that were church oriented and familiar with the Lord for years. Kelso enjoyed making his beats and music. Was very talented with making hip hop music which he loved very much. Him and his hip hop bros would get together and produce the smoothest beats and rhymes. Kelsey enjoyed being with friends and family. He loved his nieces and nephews very much and had a special place in his heart for them. His laughter and smile were contagious and heart warming. He loved to travel when he could. Kelsey enjoyed adventures, friendships, and jokes. He was comical always making sure to put a smile on our faces. Kelsey was a laborer and worked hard at the jobs he could find in the city of Calgary. He loved the city of Calgary. He was a sports fan also. His fave sports were basketball, football and hockey.
