Kevin Carlton grew up in Long Beach, Calif., where his mother raised him and his four older siblings. Carlton’s father died when he was 2 years old, after being hit by a drunk driver, and the family had to move often because his older brothers and sisters were part of “the party crowd.” Later in high school, Carlton’s mother re-married and they were all able to settle down. At the time, he and his stepfather butted heads, but now Carlton understands what he was trying to do.
