Kevin,you were always such a fun loving funny little kid and grew into a humorous adult that everyone enjoyed being with. You were a good son and wonderful nephew. I will miss your humor. You loved books from a very early age and I remember reading to you when you were to young to read. I will miss talking to you about different books. You have part of my heart and I will have lots of wonderful memories.

As the youngest cousin on the Atkins’ side, my earliest memories of Kevin are of clever banter between him and Richard, followed by much laughter and some good-natured teasing. I learned quickly to sharpen my wit so I could attempt to hold my own in his company. I remember gathering around and listening to his adventures in the Navy at Aunt Betty and Uncle Bo’s house and recording adventures of my own to send back - feeling quite certain that he would appreciate my clever schoolyard antics! As an adult, I got to know an intelligent, quick to laugh, kind and loving man who stood in strength with his mom through all of life’s events and adventures. Rest in peace Kevin. You are missed.

Kevin, a fun kid and a good man. I really enjoyed visiting with Kevin as he grew into a man. Although I did not get to visit with him as often as I would have liked, he was always fun-loving and interesting to talk to. My sincere condolences to his mother Betty. Kevin will be missed on into the future but never forgotten. Rest in peace Keb.

Kevin was so much fun to be around. He absolutely loved to have fun and usually caused some hilarious drama during our family games. Big in stature, he was a gentle giant with a heart of gold who loved his family. Going to miss you Cuz! RIP Keb!

Kevin was a loved member of our family and will be greatly missed. He enjoyed reading and playing video games very much, and you seldom saw Kevin without a smile on his face. He left a lasting and very good impression on many people. RIP

So many memories of summers with the cousins, late night poker games, fishing trips and many many more all with tons of laughs and smiles. Playing board games with the cousins was always a blast as rules were bent and mischief was had and Keb was usually at the center of it all. I also remember listening to the tapes and letters Keb sent home while deployed that the family all listened to with pride and smiles as we heard of his adventures. I remember him playing with the little nieces and nephews and always making them laugh latter in life as we grew older. You are sorely missed Cousin Keb.

In memory of my younger cousin Kevin. I remember him as a energetic, handsome tow-headed little kid, and later a fun loving, family-oriented adult. I'm so glad we are related. He always made his family proud, and he will be greatly missed. Much love to my cousin Betty, and the extended family. This is such a loss. Thinking of all of you...
