Louis Todd Kelm passed away June 5, 2019 in Corpus Christi. He was born Feb. 21, 1970 in Port Lavaca.
He graduated high school in Port Lavaca and went on to become a talented musician and vocalist, minister of music and choir director for churches such as AZUSA World Ministries in Phoenix, Arizona, Galilee Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, Living Word Church in Conroe, and many, many other churches.
