He worked many construction jobs around the state of Alaska. In 1976, he and his wife purchased The Lucky Lady bar with partner Neil Brogan. In August 2005, after retirement, they returned to Ireland.

He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Eileen McKelvey; daughter, Patricia McKelvey; brother, Gerry McKelvey; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
